Medication Shouldn’t Be Confusing
MedsCheck is a program that allows you to schedule a 20 to 30 minute one-to-one meeting with our pharmacists to ensure that you are safely and appropriately using all types of medication. Think of it as a comprehensive medication review. And it´s free! Just bring your OHIP card. The MedsCheck appointment is your chance to discuss how your prescription, over-the-counter and alternative medications may be affecting each other.
During this one-on-one meeting, you will have an opportunity to learn about your medications and medical condition(s). As part of this service you will benefit by:
- Gaining better understanding of drug names, strengths, adverse effects and usage instructions. This may include over-the-counter and/or herbal medications.
- Understanding the benefit of taking your medications as your Doctor has directed.
- Investigating strategies to manage any adverse effects or issues surrounding the medications you take.
- Discussing other resources available to educate you and support your continued good health.
