How to Worry Less About Managing Your Medicines

managing your medicines

The more medicines you are prescribed, the harder it can be to keep track of them. There are many ways that we can help you to make managing your medicines easier!

Why managing your medicines can be difficult

The thought of managing your medicines can be daunting. Remembering when to order your next prescription and making sure you take your medicines correctly can cause stress and anxiety. You don’t need to worry – we’re here to make it easier for you to manage your prescriptions.

It’s normal to worry about your medication. Common causes for concern include:

  • Running out of medication, especially if you (or your loved one) have lots of prescription items
  • If your medication is often changing, it can be hard to set a routine to take them at the right time of day
  • The possibility of side effects, and not knowing what to do if your medicine causes them

At Spirit Pharmacy, we’re proud of our personal and friendly service. We can make managing your medicines a little bit easier for you. These are some of the ways we can help you:

blister pack

Blister packs

Blister packs help you take your medication at the right times of the day. We sort your medicine doses into designated sealed compartments for particular times of the day. It’s a service we offer free of charge, just let us know when you put a prescription through!

Medicine reminders

We can remind you when it’s time to order your medicines, so you never have to worry about running out again. We can email or phone you when it’s time to order, tell us how you would prefer us to keep in touch.

Family medicine management

We can help you manage your whole family’s medicine too, including children under 16 and vulnerable family members.

You can sign up a family member and manage their medication by phone or online!

New medicines service

If you are starting a new medicine for a long-term condition, we can provide extra help and advice at a time that suits you. We will support you over several weeks to help you use your new medicines safely and to the best effect. If you have any questions or concerns about your medicines, feel free to contact us at any time (email is fine, but we love speaking to our patients on the phone too).

It’s important to take medicines as instructed. Always follow the instructions on the labels. Take them at the right time of the day, and take note of other advice, e.g. to take with food – this will help your medicines to work more effectively. Talk to your pharmacist if you have any questions, especially with new medicines or changes to prescriptions.
