Given the high prevalence of chronic disease in the U.S., it's likely that you or someone you love is living with an ongoing illness like heart disease or diabetes. In fact, about 133 million people (or 45 percent of the population) are affected by at least one chronic condition.
Fortunately, taking medication as directed can significantly improve health outcomes for people with chronic conditions. Talking to a pharmacist can help patients get off on the right foot with a new medication regimen, and dedicated time with a pharmacist is available at your local pharmacy.
The CARE 1on1 program at CVS/pharmacy offers a full prescription review and consultation with a pharmacist about medication safety, possible savings and potential side effects when you fill or transfer a new, ongoing prescription for the first time.
Chicago-area based pharmacist at CVS/pharmacy, Eric Reid, recommends these five questions to help you get the conversation started with your pharmacist.
Addressing such questions with your pharmacist can help make treatment of a chronic disease more manageable, ultimately leading to better health.
