Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

Medication management is a partnership between you and your health care provider at Zalwango Health and Wellness Concierge, PC. Your provider monitors and manages your prescriptions and over-the-counter (OTC) medications to ensure you’re getting the highest value with minimal side effects.

The goal of medication management is to help you track your various medicines and take them appropriately. With proper monitoring, your primary care specialist can also make sure you’re using each medication safely.


Why is medication management important?

Forgetting to take your medications, mixing prescriptions, and double-dosing can be dangerous to your health. When you have a chronic disease, you may have to take multiple medications to manage your condition. It’s important to have support from a professional health care provider to minimize the risks of taking more than one medication, increase their efficacy, and maximize your results.


Who should consider medication management?

Medication management offers peace of mind for patients who may struggle to keep track of their medications and dosages. The team at Zalwango Health and Wellness Concierge, PC, encourages you to consider this service if you:

  • Have multiple chronic diseases
  • Have memory impairment
  • Are elderly with limited mobility
  • Take several medications
  • Have recently switched medications

Medication management is also critical if you have prescriptions that you can’t take at the same time. The team can create a personalized plan that is clear to understand and follow. With professional management, you will always know which medications to take, at what time, and how often to use them.


What does medication management include?

Medication management breaks down into several categories, including:

  • Prescribing medicine
  • Monitoring and tracking medication usage
  • Disposing of old medications
  • Safely storing medications

During your initial evaluation, the team performs a complete review of your medical history before assessing your health with a physical exam. They may also order lab work, such as blood testing and urinalysis, to help create your individualized medication management plan. 

As you navigate new and existing prescriptions, the team can adjust your plan to make sure it remains effective.
