- Medication Reviews
What is a Medicine Review?
A medicine review is a service that allows a pharmacist to perform a thorough check of all the medicines you are taking. It is done at the request of your doctor, and with your agreement. It gives you the opportunity to spend time asking questions about your medicines to gain a better understanding of how they work, how to take them and any interactions that may occur. Multiple prescribed medications or even herbal medications you may be taking, can on occasion interfere with each other. Sometimes medicine-related problems can occur. By having a personal discussion with a pharmacist, you will reduce the risk of these problems occurring. Improving your understanding of the medications you take may also improve your overall health.
Who would benefit from having a Medicine Review?
Some things are more likely to put people at risk of medicine-related problems, such as:
- taking five or more regular medicines, or taking more than a total of 12 doses of medicine per day which may lead to confusion
- recent changes to your medication routine (doses or medicines);
- attending a number of different doctors, both GPs and specialists
- someone who doesn't understand their medications or how to use them properly eg. Ventolin puffers, peak flow devices, diabetic monitoring, medication or glucometers
- the elderly, confused or people with language difficulties
- recently being discharged from hospital.
Who can decide if you need a Review?
Your doctor will usually identify a need for a medication review. However carers, family members, your pharmacist or community nurse, can ask your doctor if this service would help you. If you agree, your doctor will fill out a special referral form, which you take to the pharmacy.
How often can I have a Review?
Every 12 months or sooner if there is a change in your condition or your medicines.
What do I have to do?
Your doctor will write a referral, which you take to the pharmacist. A time is arranged to have the medication review. Before the visit, think about and write down any questions you would like answered. All your medications need to be viewed. Even those bought at health food shops. The pharmacist will discuss the results of the review with your doctor, including any suggestions that may be of benefit to you. You then return to your doctor and with your help he/she will develop a medications management plan for you to follow. Your doctor and pharmacist will work together with you, to put any changes into action.
