What Can My Pharmacist Do For Me?
Pharmacists are a critical part of your healthcare team. Several supervise pharmacy technicians who prepare medicine to fill your prescriptions. Today’s pharmacists do much more. They counsel you on how to use your medicine correctly, they can help prevent overdoses, and can avert dangerous drug interactions by tracking the amounts and combinations of the drugs you take.
The pharmacist is a drug expert. He or she can help you get the most out of your medication by sharing important information on how to use it. For example, should you take your prescription before or after meals? Is it necessary to stay out of the sun or avoid particular foods while taking your prescription? What over-the-counter drugs, herbal products, or other remedies should you avoid while taking a specific medication or if you have a particular medical condition? The next time you have questions about your prescription or non-prescription medication, chat with your pharmacist.*
