Medication Specific Counseling SessionTM full description.

Why would anyone ever want to or need to use AudibleRXTM to learn about their medications?  Well, in an ideal world you would not. The theory is that you would take your prescription to the pharmacy, or it would most likely be electronically sent to the pharmacy, and when you went to pick up the prescription you would have time to cover all of the important aspects of the medication with the pharmacist. 

In theory, this would be your regular pharmacist and they would take the time to discuss with you what the medication does, describe the Black Box Warnings, how it works, allergies, food and drug interactions, cautions and precautions, and a handful of other important information about the particular medication.  Since this was your pharmacy and your pharmacist, they already know your personal history and are able to evaluate the medication against any of your other medications, drug allergies and disease states.

You would know exactly which questions to ask and have them answered before you left the consulting area.  As you were walking out of the pharmacy you would feel confident that you know exactly why you are taking the medication, what it is for and how to assure that you get the best possible outcome of therapy from taking this particular medication.

I have talked to quite a few people about their medications and I am not convinced that this process happens on a regular basis.  When I am consulting someone about their medications, my goal is to:

·         Help them understand all the important aspects about the medication so they will be motivated to follow their own pharmaceutical regimen.

·         Help the patient gain their best possible outcome with their current therapy.

·         Help the patient avoid any medication miss-adventures.

AudibleRxTM helps patients, family members, and care givers understand a medication.   After each 6-8 minute audio session, the individual will have a clear understanding of what they do know and what they don’t know about a particular medication.  They will be prepared to formulate educated questions to take back to their own pharmacist or doctor.
