Though not that common, at some point it is possible that your Doctor will look to change your medication, either completely, or simply lowering your dosage. If this has happened to you, and you are unsure about your new medication, you may find it helpful to know you can get all the support you need with the New Medicine Service (NMS).
The New Medicine Service is designed to make the process of changing to new medication easier. With NMS, you will be able to get advice and information from our Pharmacist on a regular basis. The time between each consultation can be decided upon, but it will essentially mean you will be able to get the most out of your new medication in the safest way.
However, only medications for certain conditions are covered under the New Medicine Service. These include:
- Chronic Obstruction Pulmonary Disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Blood thinning medication
At Dermacia pharmacy in Islington, our highly experienced pharmacist can offer you advice and information on your new medication. We have our own private consultation room, so we can discuss your new medication in private under complete confidentiality.
If you are based in or around North London and would like to take advantage of the New Medicine Service, please visit us at our Pharmacy in Islington or call us for more information.
