Specialized Packaging & Medication Management Services

Pharmacists at Marshland Pharmacy are committed to helping patients manage their medications.  The pharmacist works along with the patient and their physician to find an individualized plan to help each patient maximize the benefits of their medications while minimizing or preventing adverse effects, interactions, costs, and waste.

Some examples of medication management services are:

  • A formal medication therapy review
    • A sit down meeting between a patient and pharmacist to review all medications, including non-prescription medications and herbals
    • Helping a patient understand the importance or need for a new medication
    • Checking blood pressure to help a patient monitor if their medication is effective
    • Discussing reasons for late refills, whether it is a matter of forgetfulness, cost, or adverse effect and helping the patient resolve the issue
    • Recommending less costly generic medications that are just as effective as more expensive brand name medications
    • Discussing preventative health care strategies like vaccinations, health screenings, and lifestyle modifications to limit future medical conditions

In addition, a key component of many patients’ medication management needs includes special packaging options, such as “bubble” packaging.  Please call for more information about our Medication Management Services.
