Most of the times, a visit to the hospital or clinic does not get you all the information you need about your health and medication. Luckily, your pharmacist is able to provide you with a medical review to explain each of your medication in details.
Your pharmacist can also take time to do a medication review to go over each of your prescriptions will go over different topics, such as your knowledge of your medication and its purpose, your ability to take the medication properly and the effects of your medication.
Your answers will help your pharmacist assess your medication and help you better understand and therefore better adhere to your prescription. A medication review is also an opportunity for you to share any health problems or concerns with your pharmacist so that services can be truly tailored to your needs. A medication review can take between 20 and 60 minutes, and fees may apply.
Easy Prescription Transfers
Need to transfer your prescriptions to another pharmacy? This can be done for most medications when you have a valid prescription.
You can ask for your prescriptions of eligible medications to be transferred to another pharmacy. This transfer can be partial (e.g., a medication while you’re away on a trip) or full (e.g., your entire medication record after you move). Narcotic pain relievers and controlled medications (such as ADHD medications) can’t be transferred. Benzodiazepines (a type of medication for anxiety or insomnia) can only be transferred once. Other conditions may also apply.
The pharmacy where you originally had your prescription filled will contact your new pharmacy to do the transfer. Remember that you are free to choose your pharmacy based on the quality of the professional services you receive and your relationship of trust with your pharmacist.
