8 Life-Saving Questions You Should Ask Your Pharmacist 1

‘It’s my right to know!’

Just as with every other domain, most people have no idea they have some rights too whenever they visit a pharmacy.

For example, did you know that your pharmacist is required by law to provide medication counselling every single time you come with a new prescription?

Asking a series of simple questions is easy, free and it can literally be life-saving.

Let’s remember, for example, this shocking story of a two-week-old newborn who was prescribed a treatment against seizures. After getting the medicine, the child’s father noticed the dosage was strangely high, so he instantly called the doctor to double-check the prescription.

It turned out that the medication dosage was so high, it could’ve been life-threatening for the newborn.

However, if the newborn’s father asked the pharmacist about the recommended dosage before purchasing the medication, this terrible situation could’ve been avoided.
