Although it seems like a pointless and irrelevant task, there is constructive reasoning behind our request for your medication list. Thorough and accurate documentation of your medication and health history information improves the efficiency and quality of your overall care, and helps avoid potential treatment risks. In addition to preventing prescription errors, your individual medication and medical history consideration is useful in detecting possible drug-related pathology or changes in clinical signs that may be the result of drug therapy or systemic disease processes.

A good medication history should encompass all current and recently prescribed drugs (brand or generic name, dosage, route and frequency taken), any previous adverse drug reactions including hypersensitivity reactions, any over-the counter medications, including herbal or alternative medicines, and adherence to recommended therapy.
