Why is medication management important?
There are numerous reasons why medication management is important! Medication management has benefits for both your health and bank account, as it reduces the chances of failing to take your medications properly, which in turn reduces the risk that you will pay through the nose for emergency room services should you experience any severe adverse side effects. As we get older, it is quite typical for the number of medications we are required to take to increase. As a result, it can get increasingly challenging to remember which medicines you need to take at specific parts of your day! A medication management plan is an excellent resource for consistently remembering to take the right medication and the proper times, especially if you take medicines for multiple chronic illnesses or psychiatric disorders.
Moreover, a medication management plan is not only helpful in a practical way but also for monitoring how well you are responding to the specific medications and whether adjustments need to be made with dosage or medication.
What is a medication management appointment?
With a medication management appointments at Beauty & Brains, our medical professionals will review the medications you are currently taking, ask you questions about any side effects that you are experiencing, if you think that the medication is improving your condition, and how well you think your treatment plan is progressing. A typical appointment is reasonably brief and usually lasts approximately 15 to 30 minutes. With the information you provide to our medical professionals, we can construct a helpful medication management plan for you that can be adjusted as necessary at any point during the treatment program. Your doctor may also recommend some blood work to ensure the medication is interacting with your body correctly.
In order to get the most out of your appointment, we recommend preparing a list of all of the medications and supplements you take before your medication management appointment, including prescription medicines, OTC medicines that you regularly take, any supplements or multivitamins you take, and the dosages for each. You might also want to compile a list of questions or concerns you have so you don’t forget when the time comes!
