  • Lake Regional Pharmacy – Lake Ozark will host a Medication Review from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. 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 Whitney Thomas, PharmD, Lake Regional Pharmacy – Lake Ozark. “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 573-964-6200 for more information. To learn more about Lake Regional Pharmacy, visit lakeregional.com/pharmacy.
