"Prescription for Choice" Easy Pill to Swallow for Pennsylvania
Date:9/8/2011

>These numbers, while staggering, cannot truly define the real value of working one-on-one with a local pharmacist. Local pharmacists have the ability to personally interact with their patients, using internal checks and knowledge of an individual's medication history to identify issues and deal with emergencies quickly and with a home-town touch.    

"The most important role local pharmacists play is that of an accessible patient resource. We've known many of our customers for years and can truly be an advocate for them," says Jeff Moskowitz, owner of Rapoport Pharmacy. "Pharmacists ensure that prescriptions are filled in a timely matter and that any new medicine will not adversely impact a patient's current drug regimen."

This is particularly poignant as cases of severe drug interaction continue to increase. According to new data from the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), emergency room visits involving the misuse or abuse of pharmaceutical drugs have doubled over the past five years. In 2009, there were approximately 1.2 million visits to emergency rooms involving pharmaceutical drugs.

Through the Prescription for Choice campaign, PARD is urging individuals to contact their legislators to support House Bill 511 and Senate Bill 211, which levels the playing field for the countless locally owned pharmacies throughout Pennsylvania.  To identify your legislator, visit http://www.legis.state.pa.us.
