How Can Your Pharmacist Help You? by nacaz4real(m): 9:29pm On Mar 11, 2016
What to ask about your medicines
"Pharmacists are experts who are qualified to give advice on the safe use of medicines. Your pharmacist may suggest a medicines use review, which is a detailed review of all the medicines you are taking, whether prescribed or bought over-the-counter. The feedback is sent to your doctor who can then take any necessary action."
These are a list of things you may want to ask your pharmacist about your medication. And they will always be willing to answer you. You may also need to write these down so as to ask your pharmacist on your next visit.
• Why am I being prescribed this medicine?
• Does this new prescription mean I should stop taking any other medicines that I am taking?
• How will the medicine affect the condition that I have?
• How and when should I take my medicine?
• How long should I take my medicine for?
• When will my medicine start working?
• How can I tell if my medicine is working?
• Are there any foods, drinks or other medicines to avoid while I am taking this medicine?
• What are the potential side effects of my medicine?
• What should I do if I think I have a significant side effect?
• What should I do if I miss a dose of my medicine?
• How do I get more of this medicine if it runs out?
• Who can I ask if I want any more advice or support when taking this medicine?

If you are prescribed a medicine that may affect your daily life and which you think might cause difficulties for you, you should discuss this with your doctor he may be able to prescribe a different medicine that is easier for you to take, or talk to your pharmacist on your next visit.
