October is CareNovate Magazine Message Pharmacists are medication experts! Pharmacists truly are the last line of defense against medication dosing errors, drug interactions, and allergy screening. It's true. While you are a the drugstore or grocery, take the time to speak to your pharmacist, ask questions and plan to have them review your entire medication profile, including over the counter (OTC) medicines, vitamins and herbal supplements. Inform them of your health conditions, medication and food allergies, and let them know if you prefer to utilizing cost-saving generic medications. By maintaining an ongoing relationship with your pharmacist, you can help to protect yourself and your family. Get to know your pharmacist always your partner in good health. 10 Magazine/Issue #2 Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. Several studies have debated the adequate dose of Vitamin D. A critical study finds that Vitamin D 600 - 800 iu per day is sufficient KEY POINTS: Before taking any OTC medication, please discuss with your doctor, provider or pharmacist to make sure that it is safe or even necessary.
