AHRQ has released a revised Spanish-language medication safety booklet, “Su medicamento: Infórmese. Evite riesgos” (“Your Medicine: Be Smart. Be Safe.”) to help Spanish-speaking patients learn more about how to take medicines safely. The booklet includes a detachable, wallet-size card that can help patients keep track of medicines they are taking, including vitamins and herbal and other dietary supplements. Print copies are available by sending an e-mail to AHRQPubs@ahrq.hhs.gov.
