Having Control & More About How Your Treatment Works
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a service a lot of pharmacies offer to help promote the responsible intake of any given medication. Our community pharmacy in Brandon, Florida also offers this service to guide our patrons with their medication costs and intake. Individuals may soon be wondering why their maintenance medications are getting ineffective and what can they have instead of what they are taking.
Along with a sound advise to consult with their different physicians, our medication therapy management is done at our drugstore in Florida to help our patrons with any of these concerns and more:
- Know your medication history
Before going through a complete assessment, we first begin with knowing your medication history to know which medicines you have taken and are maintaining. This will help give us a clearer understanding of why you have gone to higher levels of treatment and what your allergies are to know and avoid any medication you are hypersensitive to.
- Medication awareness
During our consultation period, we can provide a discussion that will help our patrons understand the purpose of their medication and how it can become ineffective when taken with another type of drug. We help educate the community about responsible antibiotic intakes and following prescription labels even for over-the-counter treatments. Maintenance medication and current health conditions may have contraindications, which can also be discussed to avoid adverse effects of multiple treatments being taken simultaneously.
- Considering alternatives
Most medicines have alternatives which you may want to consider to help you save on cost while getting the same, if not a more effective treatment, can be reviewed and considered during the MTM consultation. Here, we can go over any concern you may have with your current treatment to guide your medication alternatives.
Medication is supposed to be curative, not health damaging. Please feel free to approach our staff or pharmacist to help you with a medication therapy management consultation. It would be a pleasure to help give you more clarity on any of your current medications.
