Know Your Medicine Programme

The Know Your Medicine Programme provides you with an unique opportunity to have an uninterrupted one-on-one session with the Pharmacist to discuss all the medicines and over-the counter supplements you take. The session usually last for an hour during which time the Pharmacist goes over side effects, drug and food interactions, best time of use and other special instructions related to the medicines. Medical conditions are also briefly discussed along with a simplified explanation of how medicines work to treat these conditions. These sessions create an environment for patients to freely ask any questions they may have about their medicines. At the end of the session a customized plan is developed for each patient which aims to improve medication use and to encourage compliance. Further follow up sessions may be recommended if needed.
