Pearland, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
In honor of American Heart Month in February, MedX Pharmacy is taking this opportunity to remind their customers of the value of their pharmacists in maintaining both heart health and general health, as well as in managing medications.
Many people are completely unaware that pharmacists can actually help manage their medications, just like their regular doctor. In some cases, the pharmacist can even be a better resource for understanding the potential effects of those medications. Pharmacists have gone through extensive training to understand medications and the possible effects they can have on patients.
When one utilizes their pharmacist to their full potential and has all their prescriptions in one location, the pharmacist is often the first to identify potential medication interactions. In some cases, those interactions can be life-threatening.
A pharmacist cannot prescribe or change a patient’s medications without a doctor’s order; however, they are specially trained to understand all classes of medications and their effects on the body. Additionally, pharmacists can give immunizations and make recommendations for nutritional supplements.
Skip the wait at the doctor’s office for important immunizations like the flu shot. In most cases, the pharmacist can give patients flu shots as well as other common immunizations (with a doctor’s order).
There are tons of people who use their pharmacist as a resource to enhance their experience at the doctor’s office by tapping into their vast knowledge of the human body and the medications prescribed to treat a variety of health issues. Pharmacists can also be one of the best resources for patients following any hospitalization. Pharmacists will ensure the current medication regimen is accurate and any new medications are not a potential risk.
At MedX Pharmacy, the pharmacists specialize in being a strong resource for patients. They encourage patients to take ownership of their health by understanding their medical conditions, the medications they are prescribed, and the importance of reporting any adverse effects from those medications.
Those looking for a full-service pharmacy and a knowledgeable and reliable resource for their medications should stop by either of MedX Pharmacy’s two locations. MedX Pharmacy will take care of all patients’ pharmacy needs with pride and care.
