Taking Medications in Professional Settings

At some time, everyone needs to take medication during the workday. Perhaps it is for something as minor as a headache or it could be an ongoing health issue such as taking insulin for diabetes. Whatever reason the medication is needed for, maintain a professional image by keeping this information private.

1. If the time you must take the medication is during a meeting, take the medication immediately before or after the meeting.

2. If you do not have flexibility with the time, quietly excuse yourself from the meeting and take the medication in private.

3. Do not broadcast your medicating event to everyone in the office. This is especially important if you have clients or customers in the office.

4. Remember, a professional environment is not all about you and your medical issues.  It’s about the productivity and service of the company.
