Managing Medication Mayhem

Local Pharmacy Offers Services to Simplify Medication Management

Over the years, I have added various and sundry prescriptions to my daily collection. It came to a head recently when I had to break down and purchase a travel dispenser that had slots for both morning and evening meds. If that’s not a sign of advancing age, I am not sure what is!

Seriously, managing medication can be a bit overwhelming. It is easy to assume that one’s doctor is keeping track of all potential interactions, but if you see specialists, prescriptions may be written by multiple physicians. It is important to have a relationship with a local pharmacist and to make sure all your prescriptions are filled in one place, so that you have a second pair of eyes looking out for you.

Clients of local pharmacist Megan Branham of Hawthorne Pharmacy, are invited to make an appointment and bring all their medications with them. This is the perfect opportunity for the pharmacy staff to look for interactions, dispose of expired medications and consult with patients to make sure they are taking all meds at the right time of day.

Hawthorne also offers medication synchronization, a service that organizes your refills so that you can pick up all of your medications on a single day each month or once every 90 days. That means less trips to the pharmacy and less chance that you get off track with a medication because you forgot to pick up your refill.

If you’re like me and find keeping up with what to take when a challenge, Hawthorne will sort and package your medications by dose in a Pill Pack. That eliminates juggling multiple pill bottles and lessens the odds of taking a medication at the wrong time. (Am I the only one who has inadvertently taken my night meds in the morning?)

Managing an ever-growing list of prescription medicine is a serious business. Utilizing the professional services of a local pharmacy like Hawthorne can simplify your life and ensure that you only take medications that interact well together.
