Did you know that London Drugs Pharmacies offer Medication Reviews? This service is available to all London Drugs patients at no charge. Your medicines should be reviewed regularly with a doctor or pharmacist (usually once or twice a year) to check that they are right for you.
A medication review is a personalized service pharmacists provide to patients to examine and discuss issues around medication use, side effects, interactions, and anything else related to your medication therapy, with the goal of ensuring you are on safe and effective treatments.
Pharmacists at any London Drugs location can perform a medication review during pharmacy hours. During your London Drugs medication review, your pharmacist will take 30 minutes to an hour to examine and discuss your current prescription medications as well as any over-the-counter medications and herbal remedies you use.
Your pharmacist will be looking to make sure your medication is safe for you and that you are on the most appropriate therapy. Things to be discussed include:
How to organize multiple medications and complex dosing instructions to minimize drug interactions and ensure maximum effectiveness
How to reduce or manage side effects
Potential drug interactions with other drugs, over-the-counter products, or other dietary considerations (example: labels that warn "Do not take with milk")
Your pharmacist will also follow up with your physician to communicate any issues identified through the medication review.
