How Can it Help?In-Depth Prescription Counseling

In-depth prescription counseling is an interactive one-on-one appointment with your pharmacist. Your pharmacist will visit with you about your medications. During this time our pharmacist will look for ways to improve your health, answer any questions you may have regarding your drug therapy, and possibly find ways to reduce your out-of-pocket health care costs.

Tips for Making the Most of Your In-Dept Prescription Counseling

  • Bring all of your prescription drugs, over-the-counter meds, and vitamins or herbal supplements with you to your appointment.
  • If you have your most recent lab results, bring a copy for your pharmacist.
  • Make a list of questions you have for your pharmacist. Example: Why do I take Atenolol? I’ve had a cough since I started taking a particular medication; could it be related?
  • During your in-depth prescription counseling, your pharmacist will discuss vaccinations. You can also choose to receive those vaccines at the time of your in-depth prescription counseling.
  • Make a list of personal goals you have for your health, and your Hy-Vee pharmacist will help you devise a plan to achieve those goals.
  • Before any changes are made to your drug therapy, your Hy-Vee pharmacist will consult with your physician.

In-depth prescription counseling is a very good time to get to know your Hy-Vee pharmacist better. Your pharmacist is a crucial part of your health team.
