With the vast number of prescription and over-the-counter medications on the market, you might not know which drugs are safe to take together and which combinations can be potentially dangerous. For example, your cold medicine may contain acetaminophen, so you should check the label before taking more acetaminophen for a headache.
Jill Logan, PharmD, a pharmacist in the Emergency Department at the University of Maryland Medical Center, will answer your questions about possible drug interactions and discuss what you can do to make sure you and your loved ones don’t combine medications that may cause serious problems.
Do you have a question about drug interactions? Send us your question via Twitter @MPTNews #yourhealth. Then watch Direct Connection on June 27 at 7:30 p.m. to see if we use your question on the show.
