The Danger of Using Multiple Pharmacies

15 Jun

While shopping around can cut your drug costs substantially, there is one potentially large drawback to purchasing your meds in multiple places, dangerous drug interactions.

You might have multiple doctors prescribing you different medicines, with no one doctor knowing about everything you take. You should discuss with each of your doctors all the medications you take…but another line of defense against harmful drug interactions can be a pharmacist.

Advise: Make sure that each place that fills a prescription for you enters every med you take into its record on you…even meds that you get elsewhere. Ask the pharmacist to review this complete list every time you add a new prescription. This act of drug due diligence takes only a few extra minutes, and it will help ensure your safety.
