Kelley-Ross Pharmacy GroupAsk The PharmacistQUESTION: How often should I notify the pharmacy of changes to my health conditions or medications?


Whenever you have a change in diagnosis or a change/addition in your medications you should notify the pharmacist/pharmacy. This also includes over the counter medications and supplements.

Certain medications are not recommended for use with certain medical conditions. Although your provider may be aware of this, the pharmacist also has a duty to monitor this as well.

Also, there is always a chance for a potential drug interaction any time a new medication is added to your current regimen.

Even over the counter medications and supplements (i.e. vitamins, minerals, etc) can interact with your current medications and each other.

When in doubt, give us a shout! Pharmacists at Union Center are always available to answer your questions!
