Let Your Pharmacist Know the Medicines You’re Taking
After your usual visit to the doctor for your prescription, the next stop most probably will be the pharmacy to pick up your medication. More often than not, the pharmacist will ask you if you have any questions about the medicine. The typical answer that most people give is “no,” however, maybe you shouldn’t be too quick to discard and not take advantage of this opportunity.
Not to say that you shouldn’t trust your doctor or your provider for home health care in Columbus, Ohio. But did you know that most pharmacists are more informed about drugs than most doctors? When you really think about it, it does make sense.
Most pharmacists not only learn how medications are made, they also understand how these medications are absorbed into the body. They can also advise you on when to take your meds, whether they should be taken with or without food and even if it should be taken with water.
