For some, navigating through the world of medications can be challenging. Whether you’re forgetful and need some help remembering when and what medications to take, you might welcome some help. Do you recognize yourself in the following?
You take multiple medications.
Says Lown Institute, more than 40 percent of older Americans take five or more medications on a daily basis – and 20 percent take more than 10. If you’re one of them, you know it’s often difficult to remember what medications you need to take, and when. It’s all too common for mix-ups to happen, when you wind up taking too little, too much, or the incorrect medication, or at the wrong time.
You spend too much time organizing your prescriptions.
The National Institutes of Health recommends that those who take many different medications develop an organizing system to keep them straight so you remember to take the right dose at the right time. Suggestions include using a pill organizer, using color marks on medicine bottles and creating a record of the medications you take and cross off when you take each medication. But organizing various pills for different times, for a week or more, can take lots of time and can get confusing.
You value personalized attention.
Fifty years ago, pharmacists at local, independently-run drug stores knew their customers and worked with them to find the best solutions to issues related to their medication. Today, when you get your prescriptions from some large-chain pharmacies that often employ multiple pharmacists and rotating staff, you might feel like just another number.
Adults who take multiple medications need a personal pharmacy to help them take control of their prescriptions and make it simple to follow dosing schedules. A pharmacy that can personalize your dosage plan, ensuring that you stay on track and take the correct dose of each medication at the right time.
A direct-ship pharmacy subscription service can help save time traveling to drug stores. In addition, ordering prescriptions that are delivered directly to your door also eliminates local pharmacy visits, so there’s no risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other cold and flu viruses.
However, a typical mail-order pharmacy that simply delivers prescriptions does not address the dosage and timing challenges of medications. A personalized pharmacy service dispenses medications in dose packs, so you know exactly when to take medications, in the right dosages, and in the right combination.
With PersonalRX’s PersonalPack, you get a box every month with all of your maintenance medications, along with a guide. Prescriptions are packaged in easy-open packages marked with the time of day, so you know exactly when to take each group of medications. There’s no risk of accidentally taking the same pill twice, forgetting when it’s time for medication or taking medications in the wrong combination or at the wrong time.
PersonalRX offers 24/7 access to a pharmacist and your own Personal Care Coordinator who will contact you to review prescriptions, answer questions, and communicate with your doctors as needed for refills or queries. Your Personal Care Coordinator will get to know you and work with you to ensure you’re comfortable with your medications and staying healthy.
How much would you spend for a service like this?
PersonalRX delivers peace of mind in a box for no additional cost. You’ll only pay your usual copay for the medications you need.
