Medical History Form
It is very important to keep an accurate record of your
medication and health history. This is very useful to healthcare
providers when you seek treatment. The form from the Institute for
Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) can be used to document all of
your health history information.

Pharmacy Home: With the advent of low cost
medication deals, patients find themselves going to different
pharmacies to get the cheapest prices. This practice could put
patients at risk for drug interactions and therapeutic
duplications. Pharmacies routinely screen patient profiles for
problems. If patients have medications filled at multiple
pharmacies, pharmacists cannot provide this important service.
Therefore, it is important to pick one pharmacy and let them know
about all the medications you are taking including the ones you
have filled at other pharmacies.
