What our Pharmacists Want to Tell You
Pharmacists at our pharmacy in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach are here to help you. We have the knowledge and resources to assist you with your health and medical needs. You can particularly depend on pharmacists when there is information about your medicine you don’t understand. However, pharmacists do a lot of things so please excuse the queue at the pharmacy. While their jobs may seem simple, they perform various functions such as reviewing your profile, ensuring you get the correct medicine, and checking medication interactions. Below are some of the things our pharmacists at our compounding pharmacy want you to know:
- Get your Medications from One Pharmacy
While you can conveniently get your medications from the pharmacy at work or the one in your neighborhood, getting your prescriptions filled at several pharmacies reduces the level of care you get. In turn, this could make your prescriptions less effective or even fatal. Medication can interact and this includes over-the-counter medications.
- Don’t Sacrifice your Health for the Drug Cost
Certain medications can be more expensive than others; however, this should not be a reason to put your health at risk. You should be educated about your medication options that include costs. Pharmacists at Palms Pharmacy will be happy to entertain your questions associated with this.
Taking your medicines correctly is paramount to managing your illness. You don’t want to end up paying for more of your medicines because you did not take them as prescribed or did not take them at all. Make sure you talk to your physician or pharmacist about affordable plans you can choose from. Also, find out if you can get certain medications for free or at a lower cost from a manufacturer.
- Do Not Hesitate to Ask Questions
Pharmacists don’t just focus on medicines and products their pharmacy is selling. They can be a great source of information, especially if your doctor was not elaborate enough during your appointment. Asking questions about your medications will help you understand how to take them. Our pharmacists are willing to tell you what your medicines are for, how you should take them, and for how long. In fact, they can also discuss with you the side effects of your medications and whether or not you can safely take them together with other medicines.
- Ask for Help when Necessary
Forgetting to take your medications can cause you more troubles than you may have thought. It is important to take your prescriptions seriously and when you keep forgetting to take your meds, ask for help from a family member or friend. Also, try to take time getting more familiar with your medicine planner. This can help you ensure you get your doses or avoid taking more doses than you should take.
Our compounding pharmacy will always pay attention to your questions or concerns associated with your medicines and health in general. We value your health more than the number of pills we can sell.
