We can provide an in-depth one-on-one review of all of your medications to ensure that your current drug therapy is both safe and effective. These review are conducted by a clinical pharmacist who has expert knowledge in the therapeutic use of medications.
Why are medication reviews important?
Medication reviews are important because they ensure that:
- you are taking only the medications you need and don't have duplicates
- medications aren't interacting with one another
- you are taking the correct amount of medicine at the right time
- any supplements, herbal, or over-the-counter medications you may be taking are safe and not interacting with your prescription medications
- you have a copy of an accurate medication list on hand, as well as in your medical record
Some common questions you may have that our clinical pharmacists can answer are:
- Why am I taking these medications?
- How do my medications work?
- What time of day should I take my medications?
- Should I take medications on an empty stomach or after eating?
- Can I drink alcohol while taking my medications?
- How can I manage side effects?
- Do I really need to take all of these pills?
