BENTONVILLE, Ark., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Sam's Club announced the launch of Making Sense of Your Medications, an awareness campaign to encourage patient consultations with a pharmacist to review their medications.

To participate, customers can bring all their medications, regardless of the pharmacy that filled the prescription, to a Sam's Club during regular pharmacy hours. No appointment is necessary. The awareness campaign begins Oct. 4 and will continue through Oct. 31.

"At Sam's Club, we believe that our pharmacists play an integral part of a patient's medical team," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam's Club Health and Wellness. "Free prescription check-ups are a service that we provide year round, but many customers may not be aware that this service is available to them - that is why we are launching this awareness campaign during American Pharmacists Month."

The free prescription check-up includes:

  • Advice on how to take medications to maximize effectiveness, including when and how to use them, whether they should be taken with food, what side effects may occur and more.
  • Comprehensive assessment of all prescription medications to determine possible interactions, no matter where the prescriptions were filled by the customer.

"Our pharmacists know that being available for questions is important to our pharmacy customers," said Turner-Mitchael.
