On-screen text:
MAKE A LIST OF MEDICATIONS AND SUPPLEMENTS

Harper (V.O.):
And very important—the infusion staff will need to know what medications and supplements you currently take, so remember to make a list and take it with you.
Oh, and it helps to get a good night’s sleep before your infusion.

You may want to bring something to keep you entertained, like a book or a tablet to catch up on your shows. Ask your infusion location if there’s anything else you could bring. They might recommend bringing things like a water bottle or a pillow and blanket.
