Discharged with sedation

Given that the patient was discharged with a prescription for a sedating medication, I counseled the patient of the risks associated with taking the medication. Specifically, I implored the importance of not driving, drinking, operating heavy machinery, and of the fall risk associated with these medications. The patient expressed an understanding and agreed to avoid those situations while on this medication.
