Medication Passport

Rating: +0

Positive Negative

Anyone who is taking any medication for a chronic health problem (eg. arthritis, high blood pressure, angina, diabetes, asthma, etc.) should carry a list of their medications with them at all times. Many pharmacies now print up a current list of medications with the dosage and dosing instructions, as a wallet card. Otherwise, there are several types of Medication Passports or Journals available, that allow you to do this yourself. Just think how valuable this information could be to emergency personnel in the case of an accident or if you had to visit the emergency department of your local hospital. Emergencies aside, what about those visits to specialists, who may not have the benefit of your current list of medications. So you can see that a medication list is extremely valuable and could be life saving.
