If you’re taking several types of medication, you may not be aware of these facts:
- Some medications can interact with each other and cause
- Over-the-counter supplements /herbal remedies paired with some prescription medications can be dangerous.
- It’s not uncommon for patients to be prescribed medications from different doctors that serve the same purpose—meaning they’re taking double doses.
- Some foods can interact, counteract or increase the effects
of your medications.
At HealthPlus & Pharmacy, our pharmacist can sit down with you, go over all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you’re taking and talk about your diet to make sure that your medications and diet are working well together for
you — not against
you. We call this service Medication Therapy Management (MTM). And, it’s a free service offered by many Medicare Part D plans.
The cost is billed directly to Medicare.
MTM may be covered for high-risk patients by some non-Medicare insurance plans, as well.
Call your local HealthPlus & Pharmacy to talk about your options. We’ll be glad to help you find out if your insurance plan covers Medication Therapy Management services.
