WOULDN’ T IT BE great to know exactly how
your medicines work, whether they are really
working for you and what side effects to look
out for? That’s exactly what a medication
review does. This is a one-on-one consultation
with the pharmacist to go over each one of your
medications in detail, including non-prescrip-tion medicines, to ensure that you understand
them better and that you’re getting the most
benefit from them with the fewest side effects.
At Costco, it’s provided at no cost to you, and
an appointment is often not necessary.
During the review, the pharmacist may
even discover problems with your medicines
and work with you and your doctor to resolve
them. This could mean changing a medicine
to something that doesn’t interact with your
other prescriptions, choosing a medication
that is more cost-effective or simplifying your
current treatment regime so your medicines
are easier to take. At the end of your consultation, you’ll even receive a complete up-to-date
list of your medications, which you can keep
with you to share with your health-care team.
The next time you’re at the warehouse to
drop off a prescription, ask for a medication
review. Your pharmacist will help make sure
your medications are working for you.—JH
