Your Phar­ma­cist

Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

Your phar­ma­cist pre­pares your med­i­ca­tions at the phar­macy or hospi­tal. Many phar­ma­cists have a spe­cial in­ter­est in di­a­betes and are cer­ti­fied di­a­betes ed­u­ca­tors. They can of­fer a lot of in­for­ma­tion about both over-the-counter and pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions. If you are un­sure which cold medicine to choose, or have other med­i­ca­tion ques­tions, your phar­ma­cist is the per­son to ask. Keep all your pre­scrip­tions at one phar­macy. When your phar­ma­cist has a com­plete list of your pre­scrip­tion and non-pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions it helps them iden­tify po­ten­tial prob­lems, such as drug in­ter­ac­tions. Many drug­stores stay open long hours and phar­ma­cists are read­ily avail­able to dis­cuss your needs and an­swer med­i­ca­tion ques­tions.

Keep all your pre­scrip­tions at one phar­macy
