Medicines today have great power to heal and to improve the quality of life. But medicines also may do serious harm if not taken correctly. This is where the role of your pharmacist is most important. You should choose your pharmacist as carefully as you choose a physician. It is best to use only one pharmacy so all medication records are at one location. This way there will be less risk of duplicating medicine or having one prescription interact harmfully with another.
Our pharmacists who know their patients and have their medication profiles on file so we aware of possible harmful drug interactions or allergies to certain drugs. The pharmacist also will be able to discuss possible side effects; what foods, drinks, or activities that should be avoided while on a medication; what to do if you miss a dose; and a wide range of other helpful information.
The pharmacist is a key health care professional in helping people achieve the best results from their medications. Americans should choose a pharmacist they trust and build a partnership for good health.
One benefit of having a dedicated pharmacist is being able to talk to someone immediately in a time of need, and someone who understands your situation. More than 79% of the people we surveyed said they would like to have a personal relationship with their pharmacist. Calling an 800 number and waiting on hold for long period of time to only talk to someone you’ve never met before, and also has no idea of your situation, this is the last thing you want to do when you need help!

Blood Pressure Monitoring:
To help control high blood pressure, also called HBP or hypertension, research has shown that monitoring blood pressure can be helpful in addition to regular monitoring in a healthcare provider’s office. Your doctor may recommend that you monitor your blood frequently if:
- You have been diagnosed with pre-hypertension (systolic — top — number between 120 and 139 mm Hg OR diastolic — bottom — number between 80 and 89 mm Hg)
- You have been diagnosed with hypertension (systolic 140 mm Hg or above OR diastolic 90 mm Hg or above)
- You have risk factors for high blood pressure
The American Heart Association recommends home monitoring for all people with high blood pressure to help the healthcare provider determine whether treatments are working.If you have been prescribed medication to lower your blood pressure, don’t stop taking your medication without consulting your doctor, Our Pharmacist will review all of your medication to unsure your blood pressure in not negatively affected by those medications.
Why is charting your blood pressure important?
- Charting provides a “time-lapse picture”
Your healthcare provider will want an accurate picture of the situation inside your arteries. One measurement taken at the doctor’s office is like a snapshot. It tells what your blood pressure is at that moment. Since there are no symptoms for HBP and no way to sense fluctuations in blood pressure, measuring is the only way to get the facts. Readings can vary throughout the day and can be temporarily influenced by factors such as emotions, diet and medications. A record of readings taken over time can provide you and your healthcare provider a clearer picture of your blood pressure. It can be like a time-lapse picture or movie, providing information on what is happening with your blood pressure over time.
- Charting can help eliminate false readings
Some people experience anxiety when at a doctor’s office, which leads to temporarily higher readings. This condition is known as “white-coat hypertension.” At the other extreme, some individuals have normal readings in a professional’s office but elevated readings outside the office. This condition is often referred to as “reverse white-coat hypertension” or “masked hypertension.”
Such false readings can lead to over-diagnosis or misdiagnosis of HBP. Our charting process provides blood pressure readings over and period of time and delivers a more accurate picture of your true blood pressure.
Medicine Frequency Report:
Medication histories are important in preventing prescription errors and consequent risks to patients. Apart from preventing prescription errors, accurate medication histories are also useful in detecting drug-related pathology or changes in clinical signs that may be the result of drug therapy. A good medication history should encompass all currently and recently prescribed drugs, previous adverse drug reactions including hypersensitivity reactions, any over-the counter medications, including herbal or alternative medicines, and adherence to therapy.
Medication history errors, such as omitting drugs erroneously, are common and often have the potential to harm patients. Hypersensitivity reactions are often poorly documented or not explored in detail, which may lead to unnecessary avoidance of a drug. Accurate documentation of concomitant herbal or alternative therapies is rare, despite the importance they may have in causing adverse effects or drug-drug interactions. Polypharmacy, specific drugs, and clinical specialty can affect the risk of medication history errors.
There are various strategies to reduce medication history errors. Pharmacists are better at taking an accurate medication history than many physicians or nurses. In the context of acute hospital admissions, they reduce error, the risks of adverse drug reactions, and prescription costs. Electronic prescribing may reduce transcription errors, but it can facilitate other errors and still depends on an accurate medication history.
Education of prescribers, both in clinical pharmacology and in taking accurate medication histories is vitally important to maintaining healthy and happy lives.
