If you or your family have any questions about your medications, their associated side effects or how they might affect your health in the future, talk to a pharmacist. You can ask your doctor or nurse to arrange a meeting with your pharmacist. They know a lot about medications and are really good at sharing their knowledge in a way that patients and families can understand.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Pharmacist_TTC_Cancer.jpg
