Medication Therapy Management
Medication-related problems are a significant health concern. It is estimated more than 1.5 million preventable medication-related problems occur in the United States each year. Medication therapy management (MTM) partners you or your caregiver with a pharmacist to promote safe, effective use of your medications.
If you are confused about the medications you take, Kerr Drug is here to give you a one-on-one review of all the medications you take. Come in to find out:
- When and how to take your medications;
- If there are any ways you can save money by making some changes;
- If you need to change medications you are taking due to potential side effects (your physician would be consulted).
Kerr Drug has been active in the ChecKmeds NC program since its beginning in October 2007. The ChecKmeds NC program was established by the NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission with the primary goal of making sure medications work well for you. It is a FREE service to any North Carolina resident who is 65 years or older and takes part in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.
Kerr Drug's pharmacists will meet with you or your caregiver to review all medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter products and herbal supplements. They will identify any potential problems including drug interactions, duplication of drugs from the same family, doses, and routes of administration and they will contact your physician if a change is recommended.
