As a senior, you know how hard it is to keep track of your medicines and follow
your doctor's orders. But your health can really suffer if you're not sure how to
take your medicine or if you skip a dose.
We can help.
ChecKmeds NC makes it easier to get your pharmacist's
help in going over your medicines to make sure they work well for you. A
ChecKmeds NC pharmacist will meet with you and look at all of your medicines.
Then s/he will make sure you know:
- When and how to take your medicine
- If there are ways you can save money by making some changes
- If you need to change the drugs you are taking (due to side effects or if there
are drugs that can't be taken at the same time)
Then the pharmacist will talk with your doctor about any changes that are needed
in the drugs you take.
