Sugar Land, TX (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
The beginning of the year is always the best time to prepare to take charge of life by improving the management of your home, finances and/or health. A big part of managing your health is ensuring the medications you take to address various health issues are the right products for you. MedX Pharmacy is offering tips on how to manage your health safely and effectively.
There are countless medications available on today’s market, from FDA-approved, brand-name products to generic products and countless over-the-counter medicinal and herbal products. While most drugs perform in the manner in which they are marketed, not every drug on the market is the right fit for all people. One of the most common issues for not managing your health properly is the lack of periodic medication assessment and reconciliation to ensure your health conditions are being properly managed.
Medications should be reassessed quarterly to ensure you are on the right medication with the right dosage scheduled to be taken at the right time. Routinely assessing prescriptions will help avoid duplicate prescriptions from the same class of medications as well as potential medication toxicity due to interactions. This often occurs when a patient is treated on an emergency basis by a doctor other than their PCP and does not have a complete list of their medications at the time of the visit. It is important to always check with your doctor or pharmacist after a new medication has been ordered or if you are experiencing any new symptoms.
MedX Pharmacy’s team of experienced pharmacists is trained to perform medication reconciliation and assessments. It is always good to have a pharmacist review your medications to check for any potential interactive products, especially following hospitalization and/or when filling a new prescription. Both existing and new patients are welcome at MedX Pharmacy for medication reconciliation.
