Talk About Your Medicines Month

Talk About Your Medicines Month (TAYMM) is an annual opportunity to focus attention on the value that better medicine communication can play in promoting better medicine use and better health outcomes. Initially created in 1985 by NCPIE and our health education stakeholders as “Talk About Prescriptions Month,” TAYMM has grown and expanded to stimulate conversations between consumers and their healthcare providers about all the types of medicines they may take, with a focus on what to know about a medication in terms of expected health outcomes, possible side effects, benefits and potential risks.
