Many times they will just say "I took an antibiotic" if they were treated for an infection. Doesn't "usually" get more detailed than that.

Smile Tylenol :)

Ya..that is the max that they usually go. If they wana give you additonal drug list, they will have it written in a paper.

But it will be helpful to know the drugs for heart diseases, Diabetes, hyperchol, etc.

Gudluck!!!

I forgot - sometimes SP's will also mention an OTC anti-diarrhea medication - Imodium. That OTC one is mentioned frequently. HTH!
