Drug history

What medication is the patient taking? What medication is prescribed and what other remedies are they taking (e.g. herbal remedies, 'over-the-counter' tablets)? Ask to actually see the medication and/or the prescription list. Don't forget injections, e.g. insulin, topical treatments, inhalers (patients may not consider them to be drugs). What illicit drugs do they/have they taken? What is their likely compliance with prescribed medication?

Is there supervision? A 'dose-it' box?

What medication have they been intolerant of and why?
