Medication Therapy Management
Medication therapy management provides education and consultation for the medications you are taking. The result is enhanced communication with your health care provider because you better understand your medications. This creates time for you to speak with your health care provider about other medical issues rather than focusing the conversation on medications and side effects. You do not need to fill your prescriptions at a Mayo Clinic pharmacy to use this service.
During a medication therapy management consultation, a pharmacist trained in comprehensive medication reviews meets with you to discuss all of your medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and dietary and herbal supplements. The pharmacist reviews each medication individually to determine possible side effects, negative interactions and unnecessary dosages. If medication issues are detected, the pharmacist will work with your health care providers to make beneficial changes to your medication regimen.
