So your doctor has decided to prescribe hormones to treat your menopause symptoms and to help reduce some of the risks that accompany the decrease in blood hormone levels. The next step is pretty simple.
You get your prescriptions filled and start taking them. Right?
But there’s a bit more to it than just that.
Your pharmacist is a health care professional, a key member of the healthcare team that takes care of your health and the health of your family. You don’t choose your physician based solely on the price of an office visit, do you? I suggest that you take a close look at the pharmacy you choose to fill your prescriptions and consider a few questions about your pharmacy and your pharmacist.
