Chronic condition information

If you are a caregiver, find out everything you can about your patient's illness. The more you understand about his/her condition, the better. It is also important to keep the lines of communication open with his/her doctors or healthcare provider. They will prescribe a plan of action that includes medication, exercise and specific meal plans.

Depending on your patient's condition, he/she may need to take a variety of medications. To help prevent dangerous drug interactions, it is important to consolidate your prescriptions at one pharmacy. To manage the high medication costs associated with dealing with chronic conditions, check with your pharmacist to see if there are generic alternatives available to replace brand name drugs. If you have any questions about the prescriptions, don't be afraid to ask your pharmacist.

Make sure to consult your doctor or healthcare provider with any questions or concerns about your health.
