Medication Management Q&A

What is medication management?

The medication management services at MedCare Clinics protect you from complications that can result from the misuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications. The team also identifies conflicts that can occur when you take certain medications at the same time.

The goal of medication management is to ensure that you’re taking the right medications for your condition and using the right dosage to prevent complications.

Misuse of medications can lead to poor symptom control, additional health issues, and in some cases, addiction to certain substances. Medication overuse can also cause physical and mental side effects and increase your risk for premature death.

When should I consider medication management services?

You can benefit from the medication management services at MedCare Clinics if you take two or more medications to treat existing physical or psychological health issues.

You may also be a candidate for medication management if you take prescription medications for certain conditions. Management services focus on ensuring you take each medication properly. The team helps you prevent underdosing, overdosing, and misuse of medications.

For instance, people with bipolar disorder may need medications to stabilize their moods. Missing doses or misusing medications can worsen your condition and cause physical and mental health complications.

What can I expect at my initial medication management consultation?

During your initial medication management consultation at MedCare Clinics, the team reviews your medical history and all of the medications you take.

It’s important that you bring a list of all over-the-counter and prescription medications and supplements and the dosage you take for the team to evaluate. Even non-prescription drugs and supplements can interact negatively and affect your long-term health.

The providers discuss your use of each medication and how well they work to control your symptoms. They can make adjustments to your existing prescriptions if necessary or prescribe new medications to better control your condition.

If you have difficulties taking medications correctly, they help you create a schedule to follow to prevent inaccurate or missed doses. The team also supervises your use of substances that may increase your risk for addiction.
