The National Council on Aging and CVS/pharmacy Educate Tampa Seniors on Medication Management and How to Save Money on Prescription Drugs
Date:7/10/2009

niors were taking expired medications
  • 14% were not taking medications as prescribed
  • 10% were at risk for potential drug interactions
  • 15% had the opportunity to switch to money-saving generics

  • "It's important to review your medication regimen with your pharmacist on a regular basis, especially when filling a new prescription," said Juan Oquendo, R.Ph., Pharmacy Manager at CVS/pharmacy. "For older people who often see multiple doctors, the pharmacy is a central point of care where potential drug interactions can be averted. What's more, pharmacists are aware of the latest generic medications available and can suggest ways our patients can save money while maintaining good health. This is especially important in these economic times."

    The Pack Your Bag program is available nationwide to senior centers located within five miles of a CVS/pharmacy store location. Seniors can also visit their local CVS for a personal consultation with a pharmacist. To find the CVS/pharmacy nearest you, call 1-800-SHOP-CVS or visit CVS.com.

    Below is a list of upcoming Pack Your Bag events scheduled throughout Florida. Seniors can sign up to attend by contacting the individual center directly:
