  • Medication dosing can be complicated, especially for individuals taking multiple medications or over-the-counter products. A conversation with a pharmacist could make things easier, and less expensive.
    Lake Regional Pharmacy – Camdenton will host a Medication Review from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 16. 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 have multiple medications with varying instructions,” said Whitney Lodge, PharmD., 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 573-346-2300 for more information. To learn more about Lake Regional Pharmacy, visit lakeregional.com/pharmacy.
