You probably think it is great if your doctor gives you free drug samples, instead of you having to go and fill a prescription and paying for the same thing. However there are some things you should consider before using the freebies.
First, make sure you get the literature on it if it doesn’t come with the sample, it was probably separated so be sure to ask your doctor for it.
Second, always ask if there could be a possibility that any other prescriptions you currently take could react negatively with it. Because most pharmacists will alert you to any conflicts, your doctor might not have realized it. The last thing you want to do is pop a freebie drug sample, and find out after the fact that its renders your birth control pills less effective.
Do a Google search of the drug name. This will give you more information on it, as well as alert you if there is a less expensive generic version of the drug as well. Doctors are often given samples of the more expensive options, in hopes that that is what the doctor into prescribing. However when you are paying for your prescription drugs, you don’t necessarily want to buy the more expensive one when there is a generic one that is equally as effective.
