orrectly, including warnings and dosing information.
  • Determining whether an OTC medication or herbal supplement is the right choice, as side effects and interactions may increase with age.
  • Over-coming loss of appetite, dry-mouth, sleeplessness or other dangerous age-related medication side-effects.
  • Taking medication at the appropriate time throughout the day for your schedule and that medication's known side-effects.
  • Addressing problems with swallowing and pill size.
  • Saving money at the pharmacy, including opportunities through patient assistance programs.
  • Reviewing your total medication history, called a "medication check-up," including all prescription and OTC medications, as well as herbal supplements. This will help determine if you are on the correct medication(s) for your condition(s), if any of your medications are interacting or whether there is a better medication for your schedule or with fewer side effects.
  • Providing many of the vaccinations you may need and were not aware of.
  • Various screenings including blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and osteoporosis.
  • Motivational counseling for a healthy lifestyle, including smoking cessation and managing disease.

  • Pharmacists work as a team with doctors and other health care providers to optimize care, improve medication use and to prevent disease. To achieve the best outcomes for their condition, patients should maintain regular visits with all of their health care providers. APhA encourages consumers to fill all their prescriptions with one pharmacy,  get to know their pharmacist on a first name basis, carry an up-date medication and vaccination list and share all medical information with each of their health care providers.
