The Need for Medication Management
Did you know the inappropriate use of over-the-counter and prescription medicines leads to more than 1.5 million recorded adverse incidents per year—and that most of these incidents are preventable? Each of these incidents can lead to sicknesses or even death!
Many a pharmacy in Kissimmee, Florida offers medication therapy management programs to reduce the number of medicine consumption-related incidents, especially among the elderly and those with memory problems. Each pharmacy has its own way of implementing programs. The goal is to find the program that works for you.
For example, West Lake Pharmacy gives customers medication reminder boxes, with special packaging to help customers keep track of their medicine intake. All medicine vials and blister packs placed in the box are individually labeled with essential information such as how much, how often, and at what times and days the medicines should be taken.
These boxes are convenient as customers no longer need to reorganize their medicines into separate containers when they get home. Keeping medications in the reminder boxes can also allow the pharmacy and physician to better track if customers are following the proper medication plans.
As a diabetes care pharmacy in Florida, West Lake also offers a diabetes care program. They give consultations, provide individualized meal plans and exercise routines, and sell basic equipment and supplies—including insulin injections—for diabetic customers.
