6 on Health: Are you taking meds? The hot sun could make you ill.

Doctors say if you're taking medication, you should be careful to stay out of the hot sun because you can start to feel worse.

"They (medications) can certainly make you feel worse and make you very ill particularly with certain medications but any medication can have an adverse reaction when you add sunlight to the mix."
