If you are not able to take the prescribed medication, ask your doctor to write clearly in his or her notes why this is the case. For example, if you find out that you are allergic or have unpleasant side effects, this should be clearly written in your medical records.
Likewise, if you do not have the money to fill a prescription, you should make every effort to seek help from social service organizations for assistance. Again, if you are unsuccessful and still cannot obtain the medication, make sure your doctor is writing this information down.
REMEMBER: Take your prescribed medications. There are many organizations that can help you afford your prescriptions.
