Medication Management Q & A

Why is medication management necessary?

Thanks to advancements in medical technology and pharmaceutical research, you can access more types of medication than ever before. That is wonderful for people who need drug therapy to thrive, and the right medication can truly change lives. 

But taking medications can also put you at risk for side effects, adverse drug interactions, and addiction. The best way to avoid these outcomes is by partnering with a highly skilled medical professional for medication management services. 

How can I make the most of my medication management appointment?

The process begins with a thorough assessment of your current drug therapy. Prepare by creating a written list of all your medications, including supplements. Include the dosing schedule and dosage. Some people find it helpful to bring in the prescription bottles. 

Lab testing might be part of the process. These tests determine the amount of medication in your system and also detect or monitor chronic health conditions. The results help your practitioner balance your medications.

What happens if my practitioner detects areas of concern during medication management?

If your provider believes your current medication is not the best fit for your needs, they’ll discuss those concerns in detail and provide alternative options. 

Many people are taking drugs prescribed by different practitioners at various points in time. These medications don’t always work well together and, in some cases, can cause serious interactions. 

There may also be newer drugs that can meet your needs more effectively. Or you may need to adjust the dosage for certain medications. If you are on drug therapy to manage one or more chronic health conditions, lifestyle improvements can help you eliminate certain medications from your treatment plan. 

MIU Center also offers products from the Livin’ it Zen supplement line. These supplements are among the best options currently on the market. If adding supplements to your health routine would be beneficial, your provider will help you find the right fit.
