The Medicine Man Pharmacy Announces Custom Packaging for Multiple Medications
Date:11/6/2013

Post Falls, ID (PRWEB) November 06, 2013

Medicine Man Pharmacy has been serving North Idaho since 1978 and is the very first in the area to offer this comprehensive prescription compliance program, MedPax at two of their locations, Medicine Man Prairie in Hayden and Medicine Man West in Post Falls.

The Medicine Man MedPax are designed to help consumers take their medications properly, avoiding side effects from improper usage. According to an article from the FDA, “Poor adherence can interfere with the ability to treat many diseases, leading to greater complications from the illness and a lower quality of life for patients.” In addition, the NIH Senior Health website states that recent reports show increased hospitalizations and visits to emergency rooms by older people due to improper use of prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as illicit drugs.

“In the last couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about pharmacies and pharmacists taking the initiative to use our skills to help improve our patient’s compliance to their personal medication regimens,” said owner Don Smith. “Seeing a great chance to lead this effort in our own community, Medicine Man Pharmacy has made a huge investment in automation and technology that will help us efficiently strip package and combine medications for our patients into dose packs that are organized around dosage times.”

The Medicine Man’s MedPax program will synchronize all refills, setting them up to be filled the same day each month, create each month’s box of strip medication packages and before the next order, the pharmacy will check on any medication changes and work with the doctor’s office and/or insurance, if needed.

With the MedPax packaging clearly marked with the date, day and time of day the medications are to be taken by the patient, the program should result in fewer trips to the pharmacy and a lot less time spent organizing medications each month.
