Medication Use Instructions

Instructions

Coast to Coast Compounding has prepared information, instructions, and directions for our compounded medications.  The purpose of this information is to help our patients achieve the best outcomes from their medication and give the best possible health through their own actions. 

It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions when taking medicine. Take the correct dose, at the appropriate time, and follow any other instructions your doctor has provided. It is important to know what drugs you are taking when you should take them and most importantly why they were prescribed.  

If you are experiencing any side effects from your prescriptions or if you have questions, talk to your doctor. If you have any questions or are unclear about your prescriptions, please feel free to call our pharmacists.  We will be happy to assist you

Eight tips to make the most of your medication:

Eight

  1. Take your medication at the same time every day.
  2. Insert your medication into a routine (ie. brushing your teeth or getting ready for bed).
  3. If you choose a mealtime to take your medication, check if your medication should be taken with or without food.
  4. Create a medicine “calendar” with your pill bottles and note each time you take a dose.
  5. If you have multiple medications and supplements, use a pill container. Some types have sections for multiple doses at different times, such as morning, lunch, evening, and night.
  6. When traveling, bring enough medication for the trip as well as a few extra days, in case your return is delayed.
  7. When flying, keep your medication with you in your carry-on bag. Temperatures inside the cargo hold could damage your medication or in the event of lost luggage, you still have your medications on hand.
  8. It’s important to keep an open line of communication. Remember, your pharmacist and doctor are there to help you and you can always call them to ask questions.
