Personal Story
Asking the Right Medication Questions
Could Save Your Life
Victor Harris almost died after taking a new medicine for high blood pressure. 

Harris, a 52-year-old African American, was on a low dose of blood pressure medicine for two years. After a routine visit to his primary care office, the nurse practitioner changed his medication to lisinopril.  Normally, he would have seen his doctor, but he was out of the office that day.

When Harris went to the pharmacy to get his prescription filled, the pharmacist asked the question many pharmacists ask when you pick up a prescription:  Do you have any questions?

Harris replied the way many of us do:  No.
