ARTARx PHARMACY SERVICES
When you’re taking more than one set of medications, it can be a pain to have to visit the pharmacy multiple times a month (or multiple times a week!) to get refills for all the different bottles.
ARTARx can help you solve this problem, by synchronizing all your medications to a single refill date. Alberta residents can request to have all their medications counted out to have each bottle empty at the same time, so that there is a constant refill schedule going forward!
Not only does this free up time by eliminating the need for multiple trips to the pharmacy, but medication synchronization can help you keep track of each medication you’re taking, lowering the chances of missed refills.
Through the Medication Pouching service, ARTARx pharmacists can review the full list of prescription medications you’re taking and create a custom package based on your specific needs. Each day’s medications are sorted into their own package, sealed, labelled, and made ready to go when the right day arrives. There’s no fuss, and your chances of missing a day of vital medication are severely reduced. Best of all, if you’re taking over-the-counter medications on a regular basis, your pharmacist can add those to the pouch too.
If you’re a primary caregiver to a family member who has trouble remembering which medications to take, and when, Medication Pouching is also a valuable service to reduce your own burden as you care for their health needs.
