What is medication management?

Medication management means medical care that helps you keep track of your prescriptions to better manage your chronic conditions. At Merak Health, the team offers medication management that covers every aspect of your medication use as part of your primary care.

What does medication management involve?

Medication management at Merak Health includes:

  • Keeping your prescriptions up-to-date
  • Medication changes
  • Altering your medication dosage
  • Discontinuing medications safely
  • Learning about how and when to take your medications
  • Checking all your prescriptions for potential drug interactions
  • Creating long-term health management plans

Medication management is an ongoing process when you have chronic medical conditions. The Merak Health team always reviews all your medications and makes sure you have everything you need during annual physicals. However, you may need more frequent medication management appointments between these times.

When might I need medication management?

Many different medical conditions might require medication management, including:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Migraines
  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
  • Arthritis
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Obesity
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

If you have any chronic condition you need to take medication for regularly, you might benefit from medication management. People who have multiple chronic conditions often need to take several different medications at the same time. Medication management can help you keep track of all those medications while avoiding dangerous interactions or side effects.

If you see a specialist for advanced care, the Merak Health team can coordinate with that provider to keep a record of all your medications in one central place. You can rest assured knowing that they can seamlessly coordinate care between providers.

Medication management ultimately relieves the burden of worrying about what you should take, when you should take it, and whether it’s safe to use. At Merak Health, the team researches every drug, each interaction, and your complete medical history before making recommendations.

Merak Health offers the highest level of all-around primary care services through in-office visits and house calls. If you need medication management tailored to your needs, call the office or use the online booking feature today.
