Health Tip of the Day

Taking Medication Safely

You can take steps to protect yourself from medication mistakes that can cause serious side effects, says the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Ask your health care provider or your pharmacist if you should avoid certain foods, alcohol and other medications or activities while you are taking a newly prescribed drug. Don't take an herbal remedy or dietary supplement without consulting your health care provider.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
