A comprehensive review of your medications can be conducted by our on-site pharmacist. You need only submit specific information using our confidential intake form. The pharmacist will evaluate your medications including; prescriptions, over-the-counter, herbal and home remedies, and vitamins, based on the information received. A report will be returned to you including information on potential adverse drug reactions, compatibility, possible side effects, and other recommendations that may be discussed with your physician.

This program is different from speaking to a retail pharmacist who only provides information for the prescription that is being filled at that time. In addition, the Pharma-Care, Inc. program provides additional privacy, since you will not need to discuss your personal information in a public setting. 

Commonly Asked Questions you should ask your Pharmacist:
1. What is the name of the medication, and what is it supposed to do?
2. When and how do I take it?
3. How long should I take it?
4. Does this medication contain anything that can cause an allergic reaction?
5. Should I avoid alcohol, any other medications, foods, and/or activities?
6. Should I expect any side effects?
7. Is there a generic version of the medication my doctor has prescribed?
8. What if I forget to take my medication?
9. Is it safe to become pregnant or to breastfeed while taking this medication?
10. How should I store my medications?

Pharmacists are your best sources for information on how to get the
most from your medicines.  Ask your pharmacist questions he or she
is trained to serve as your medication advisor.

Ask Your Pharmacist
Your pharmacist will be able to answer these medication questions as well as any others you may have. Pharmacists are trained as medication experts so they can help you get better faster.

Choose your pharmacist as carefully as you choose your doctor because he or she is an important part of your health care team. It is not uncommon to see more than one doctor; and for this reason, it is very important to use just one pharmacy so your medication records will be located in one place. Your pharmacist can help you keep track of what you are taking-- prescription and non-prescription-- and make sure that your medications will not interact harmfully with each other.

Your pharmacist also can serve as your medication advisor when treating yourself and your family with non-prescription ("over-the-counter") medications. Even though these medicines do not require a doctor's written prescription, they are still very powerful and may affect other medications.

Now that you are familiar with what you should know about your medications, ask your pharmacist for the answers and remember to "Be Informed... Stay Healthy-- Talk With Your Pharmacist."

Pharmacists can educate you about your medications--prescription and nonprescription.
And the more you know, the better you'll feel.
