Good Medication Management is Important

Please preempt ordering prescriptions to avoid medication running out.

If you are given 28 days of tablets and you have 7 days left, order your new prescription.

It is good practice that repeat medication is regularly reviewed so that you get optimum care. Please make note of the review date and make an appointment to see the pharmacist, ensuring all relevant blood tests done before this.

If you are going on holiday, you should take a list of your medication with you. In case you have a problem ensure you have enough medication to cover your holiday. Some countries also need a doctor’s letter to explain the medication. Check with your travel agent. There may be a charge for such letters.

If you have elderly relatives ensure that they have an adequate supply of their medication.
