Medication Synchronization: Ensuring You Never Miss a Dose
Taking multiple medications can be challenging. This is especially true for people with chronic illnesses or conditions who often take several medications to treat one or more ailments. With these medications being prescribed at different times and often by different doctors, the chances of forgetting to refill one or more of those prescriptions are high.

Calling the pharmacy constantly to request a refill of a single drug is inconvenient, as is going to the pharmacy multiple times a month to pick up medicine. Attempting to keep track of when your medications are due for a refill coupled with actually picking them up will almost certainly result in unintentional lapses in medication adherence. But, there is a solution to this dilemma. The solution is something called medication synchronization.
What is Medication Synchronization?
Medication synchronization is when your pharmacy coordinates your prescriptions in a way that enables you to get all of your ongoing medication at that same time on a regular schedule.
Why is Medication Synchronization Important?
Medication Synchronization increases adherence. Naturally, when you receive all of your medication at the same time, you are more likely to take them as directed. Additionally, when medication is received at the same time and in the same manner, the chances of taking the wrong medication or the wrong dose is significantly reduced.
