Take Care With Meds That Should Be Given Together

You can help ensure patients get the correct regimens when one med requires administration of another med to limit side effects.

For example, patients with rheumatoid arthritis who take methotrexate should also get folic acid...to reduce the risk of mouth sores, nausea, and diarrhea.

And patients getting an opioid (oxycodone, etc) may need a laxative (senna, etc)...to help manage opioid-induced constipation.
