Multiple Diagnoses: Engaging Your Pharmacist

Managing a single medical diagnosis can be challenging. But if you’re like me and living with multiple medical diagnoses, it can be an involved process. I find one the most overlooked players on your health care team is your pharmacist.

Talking with your pharmacist can help identify any potential contraindications with your prescribed medicines, as well as any supplements you may be taking. So, if you can, identify a time when your local pharmacy tends to not be super busy and stop by to have a conversation with them. It can be tremendously valuable for validating the plan that each of your specialists have put in place for you.
