I Wish I Could Fill All My Medicines Together!

Jun 01, 2017 08:30AM ● Published by Jason Huddle

I Wish I Could Fill All My Medicines Together!

Have you ever wished this? Anyone who takes more than one medication per month has encountered this problem many times before and most pharmacies now have a solution. 

Many pharmacies have programs that automatically fill your medications when they are due; however, if they were prescribed by different doctors or at different times, they are all filled at different times. Synchronization is the answer to these woes. 

Once patients enroll in these programs, the pharmacy automatically fills their prescriptions all at the same time. If a prescriber starts a new medication that is not in the same timeline as the medications the patient is taking, the pharmacy fills just enough to get to the refill date of all the other medications. There are many advantages to the patient in a synchronization program, the least of which is cutting the patient’s trips to the pharmacy down to just once a month or even once every three months. 

Other advantages include things most patients don’t see. For instance, it allows the pharmacist to give a more thorough look at all the medications and therapies that the patient is currently taking. This way, the expert in medication has the opportunity to check everything before allowing the medication to be delivered to a patient. Where computer screening processes are great and catch almost everything, it is an extra level of patient protection to have the pharmacist look into interactions and help prevent side effects, if possible. 

“Since the implementation of the My Sync Rx program, it has become one of the most popular services that Cannon Pharmacy provides,” Michael Rea, of Cannon Pharmacy, says. “Patients enjoy the convenience of knowing that, each month, all of their medications will be ready when needed and they will not be making four or five trips to the pharmacy. If this is a service you are interested in participating in, I strongly encourage you to speak to your pharmacist about having your medications synchronized.”
