First, get your mother to the doctor or the emergency room right away. Make sure that you tell the doctor about any medicines—prescription or over-the-counter—that your mother is taking, including dosages. Don’t forget to mention vitamins and other supplements.
Here are some questions that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend asking:
- What kind of activities should she avoid?
- When can she resume normal activities?
- When may she drive her car again?
- What kind of medication, if any, should she take?
- Should she avoid any specific medicines while taking the new one?
- Should she avoid drinking alcohol? If not, what should be the limit?
- What complications, if any, should I be on the lookout for?
- Will she need any special treatment or rehabilitation?
- Should we schedule a follow-up visit?
- How long will it take her to get better?
