Comprehensive medication review
Pharmacists have an important role in your care
Taking prescription medicines can be a challenge. There are a lot of details to understand. One member of your health care team — a pharmacist practitioner — can help you manage your medicines and your health. A pharmacist practitioner is doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) that is specially trained to provide patient care in the clinic setting.
Three Allina Medical Clinic locations (Coon Rapids, Woodbury and Richfield) offer a special clinic visit that lets you talk privately with a pharmacist practitioner about your medicines.
During the review, the pharmacist will:
Bring all of the medications you are taking. Include prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins, herbals and natural medicines. The pharmacist practitioner needs to know all of the medicines you are taking.
Also, bring a list of questions. For example, do you know what to do if you forget to take your diabetes pills, is there an herbal you want to start taking, or do you think your asthma inhaler isn’t working as well as it used to.
