Remembering to take medications as prescribed can be difficult. This is a very common occurrence and is known as “medication non-adherence.” Non-adherence to medications used to treat chronic diseases and conditions results in increased adverse drug events, worsening medical conditions, increased comorbid diseases, hospital admissions and readmissions, and emergency room visits. Put simply, not taking your medication as prescribed can be a dangerous health risk. In order to simplify your life and make your medication regimen more convenient, our pharmacies offer compliance packaging services.
Our blister packaging service involves placing you on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule, packaging your medications in a blister card, and having your medications ready for pick up or delivery before you run out. Medications are packaged according to their intended administration times so that each medication is taken at the most appropriate time of the day. This is a complimentary service that serves as a medication planner and reminder to help you keep your health on track.
