What happens at a medication review?
We will make you a 10 minute review appointment. We will discuss your medicines with you, and you will be able to ask any questions you have about your medicines.
Will my medicines be changed?
Possibly, but only to improve your treatment. Before any changes are made, the reasons for the change will be explained and you will be asked for your agreement.
Do I need to take anything to my medication review?
It would be very useful if you could bring with you:
Medicines often have two names (a brand name and a generic name) so having the medicines with you at the review will prevent any confusion if the pharmacist calls the medicine a different name to the name you normally use.
What questions will I be asked at my medication review?
You will be asked how you are getting on with your medicines. Some of the questions you might be asked include:
Where can I get information about medicines?
