People with a brain tumor often need multiple medications ̶ not just to treat the tumor, but also to manage treatment side effects. Keep a medication log that tracks all prescription and non-prescription items ̶ including over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements, vitamins, or other holistic treatments ̶ to make it easier to manage your loved one’s medication needs. In the log, write down:
- What each medication is for
- What dose to take
- When to take it
- What side effects the patient experiences
- The name of the doctor who prescribed it
