  • Lake Regional Pharmacy, located at 1057 Medical Park Drive in Osage Beach, Mo., will host a Medication Review from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 15. Reviews are free, and registration is not required.
     Patients are encouraged to bring their prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as supplements they are taking, to the pharmacy that day. Lake Regional pharmacists will evaluate the medications for potential drug interactions, more efficient timing for taking medications and cheaper alternatives or more efficient dosing, if appropriate.
     “Patients often don’t realize that time of day is important when taking medications,” said Stacie Ling, operations manager with Lake Regional Pharmacy. “The Medication Review is a great way to ensure prescriptions and supplements are taken safely and efficiently. We’ll also check for generic options that could save patients money.”
     Participants will receive a free wallet card listing their medications and dosages to carry with them. Call 573-302-2700 for more information. To learn more about Lake Regional Pharmacy, visit lakeregional.com/pharmacy.
