Medication management is a service that focuses on helping you use all your medications safely and correctly. The team at Freudly can help you manage prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as any dietary supplements you take.
The goal of medication management is to identify potential conflicts with the medicines you take to treat existing health conditions. The providers also ensure you’re taking the right dosage of the medications you need each day.
Medication management services are beneficial to anyone who takes more than one medication for underlying health conditions.
Anytime you need to take a medication, it can cause side effects or interfere with the safety of other medications you take. The team at Freudly can recommend changes to your dosage or medication if you’re experiencing side effects or conflicts with other medications.
Freudly can also help you manage how you take the medications to achieve the optimal benefit of your treatment.
During your initial medication management consultation, your Freudly provider meets with you through a video chat or phone call. They take time to review your medical history and the list of medications you take, including how often you need to take them and the prescribed dosage.
Your provider also discusses any issues you experience while taking certain medications and evaluates how well they work for you. If they see a need to make changes to existing prescriptions, your Freudly provider can discuss that with you during your consultation.
Through follow-up phone calls or video chats, your provider continues to monitor your treatment progress and ensure your symptoms are well-controlled.
If you have any questions or concerns about new medications you’re taking, you can schedule a same-day or next-appointment with your provider. This immediate attention helps reduce your risk of negative reactions or allergies that medications can trigger.
