Take time for a Medication Check-Up
A medication check-up (also called medication management therapy) is a service provided by pharmacists. It can improve your health and lower your health care costs. The information provided by pharmacists can also help patients better manage health conditions such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart diseases, depression and blood clots.
Apple Discount Drugs offers a free medication management service that allows Apple customers to brown bag all of the prescribed medications, OTC supplies and supplements they are taking and bring them in to Apple for a one-on-one consultation with one of Apple’s medication therapy management specialists.
Your pharmacists can look for problems or complications your medications may be causing. By discovering inadequate doses or alternative drugs that offer lower cost generics, this service can provide a better health care plan and savings for each customer.
Your medication check-up will provide you with education on how your medications help you manage your health conditions, answer the questions you have about your medications, help you organize your medications and prepare questions to ask other health care providers and will help you make a complete list of all your medications that you can share with other health care providers
The service is most helpful if you:
- Use several medications
- Use several physicians
- Have several health conditions
- Have questions or problems with your medications
- Take medications that require laboratory monitoring
- Have been hospitalized recently
- Have recently changed your medications
- Want to reduce your out-of-pocket medications costs
