9 Things Pharmacists Want You to Know
In general, your pharmacist can help you get more advice about the pills that you need or the diagnosis the doctor has made, and your conversation with them should be much broader, not just giving greetings, buying your medication and leaving. There are many things that you need to know, and your responsibility should increase when it comes to your health.
Don’t be afraid to ask them important things about your problems, because they are specially trained to know the chemistry of different drugs and how they interact with your body or other meds.
“I’m not just here to give you the medication. I’m here to answer questions if you’re having problems taking it,” says Jamal Downer, PharmD, a pharmacist, and manager at a Walgreens store in New York City. “Pharmacists are always there for you — free of charge.”
So next time when you want to go to the pharmacy, feel free to ask your pharmacist about your problems or how the pills react in your body because they can tell you the benefits, but also the side effects of your drugs.
