Medication interactions

Doctors and physicians pass through years of training and studies to, among other essential affairs, calculate the exact amount of medication you need to treat your illness. Sometimes, you have to take two or more medications, which can counteract each other in a way only your health professional can foresee.

As we know, medication interactions are no simple matter. 40% of older adults in the United States have a prescription for two or more medications. This condition is called polypharmacy, which means they use multiple drugs to treat diseases and other health conditions.

Almost 1.5 million people end up in the emergency room due to overdose or unsafe prescription drug interaction. These complications could be as severe as causing deaths. Proper utilization of our meds keeps you safe, healthy, and alive.

Annual medication review

Just as a car needs services and maintenance, a medication review performed by a licensed and registered pharmacist can help patients ensure they take their medications correctly. These drug interactions include prescription meds, over-the-counter medicines, and even supplements. Every substance we enter into our body has effects that must be evaluated by a professional.

An annual medication check-up helps patients achieve the health benefits intended for their treatments. Pharmacists can also assist with important information related to the management of the prescribed medications, their instructions for taking them, and advice about the costs and perks of certain types of meds.

National Check Your Meds Day

The National Community Pharmacists Association sponsors October 21st as National Check Your Meds Day to promote that patients bring their medications and prescriptions to their local pharmacist for revision.

Pharmacists utilize this day and the activities around it to promote medication review. There are several ways you can observe this day, such as:

  • Get your medication checked at your local pharmacist.

  • Develop a closer relationship with your pharmacist.

  • Promote the participation of the community.

  • Talk to your doctor or physician about the importance of keeping your medication up to date.
