How to ask patient if they are using certain drugs?Watch this thread
"Do you take any medications?"
"Do you take any medications like aspirin, clopidogrel, or any blood thinners?"
Of course, patients being patients means some will tell you they take no medications at all when they're on half the BNF or try and get you to guess based on what the tablet looks like ("you know, the round white ones")
TBH I usually just check their GP med list and last script date on their record then compare to what they tell me. For example-if I see they picked up a script 5 days ago then they’re probably taking it but it they last picked it up 5 months ago and only got a 30 day supply then they’re probably not taking it.
