PHARMACY SERVICES

Your Pharmasave Pharmacist is a highly-trained medication expert and healthcare professional who works closely with your doctor and other members of your healthcare team to make sure that you’re getting the most effective treatment with the fewest side effects.

Your pharmacist can answer questions about medications you’re taking and any over-the-counter and natural health products. They can advise you on your health concerns without your needing to schedule an appointment. And, of course, they double-check your prescription medications to make sure they are safe and appropriate for you. They can also do a lot more for you.

What does your pharmacist do behind the counter?

For each prescription, your pharmacist performs a number of activities to ensure that the medication you have been prescribed is safe and appropriate for you. Once your prescription is received, the pharmacist carefully evaluates it to ensure that:

  • the drug, dosage, quantity, and directions for use are all correct
  • the prescription doesn’t duplicate any of your current therapy
  • serious drug interactions won’t occur between your new prescription and existing medications or medical conditions
  • the medication is not one that you have an allergy or sensitivity to
  • If information is missing from your prescription, or there are any other issues with it, your pharmacist may discuss these with you, or choose to contact your doctor, or both.

Once your medication is packaged and almost ready to go, your pharmacist compares your prescription label with your doctor’s original prescription and checks the contents of the prescription vial or container to ensure that you receive the right medication.

When you pick up your prescription, in order to help you get the most from your medication, your Live Well Pharmacist will provide counselling on the following:

  • what your medication has been prescribed for
  • how and when you should take it
  • how long you should take it for
  • how you will know if your medication is working and what to do if your medication is not working
  • possible side effects and what you should do if you experience any
  • how you should store your medication
  • additional information about your medical condition
