Atlanta Pharmacies | Prescriptions | Medication Management

Today's pharmacies vary in size and in services offered. There are mega-chains, locally-owned pharmacies, and online pharmacy services. There are benefits to each.

If you travel a lot, it may be more beneficial to use a mega-chain that keeps your records on a shared database, just in case you forget to pack your meds.

If you prefer a more personal touch, the local pharmacy is for you. They generally will know you by name, have delivery service and some types of durable medical equipment available.

The last option is the online pharmacy. It's a bit of a hassle getting it set up, but once you have it going, it can be a great choice for maintenance prescriptions.

When choosing the option that is best for you, make sure you consider who accepts your insurance, how often you travel and how many prescriptions you need on a regular basis. If you have prescriptions with more than one pharmacy, make sure each one knows ALL of the drugs you are taking.

Finally, make it YOUR responsibility to ASK if there might be any possible side effects of combining certain drugs. As a general rule, pharmacists know more about drugs than do your doctors. Build a strong relationship with your pharmacist and pick his/her brain!
