One of the most important ways you can manage your health is by taking your prescription medication as directed by your doctor, pharmacist, or other health care professional. This is known as rx management.
There are many reasons people don’t take their medication as directed, including forgetfulness, side effects, not sure they need medication and cost. Not taking your medication as directed can be bad for your health. It can rob you of a long and full life. It can also lead to other health problems, especially if you already have a chronic condition like asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
Your pharmacist at your local Good Neighbor Pharmacy® can help you understand and manage your prescription medications. If you have questions — how your medication works, why you need to take medication, side effects or other concerns — talk about it. We can help you understand the outcomes and identify the reasons for not taking your medications as directed and share helpful tips and tools to promote rx management.
