Do you know what your medications are for?
Do you know the active ingredients in your medications?
When was the last time you had your medications reviewed?
The National Prescribing Service is an independent, not-for-profit and evidence based organisation that exists to help people make and act on the the best decisions about medicines and other health choices. They have created a FREE mobile app to turn your smartphone into a 'Wise' phone. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play Store, just search for 'MedicineWise'
This app allows you to keep an up-to-date list of all your medications, their strengths and dosages, and what they are for on your smartphone. It also gives you access to TRUSTWORTHY information on each medication. There is also the capability to have an extra list within the app of the medications taken by someone you care for.
Remember, if you're not so "tech savvy" you can always call in, have a medication discussion with one of our experienced pharmacists, and walk away with a FREE typed list of all your medications.
