The Food and Drug Administration has developed a medication record to help people keep track of their prescription and over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements. "My Medicine Record" is also intended as a tool patients can use to exchange important information with their health care providers. They can print the record and write in the information or download the record, enter the information on the computer, and save and print it.


"My Medicine Record" also provides questions patients can use to seek more information from health care practitioners about the products they use. The instructions and questions are clearly written and easy to use. Download the document and instructions at
