Patient pill organisers ‘may spark adverse effects’


Surely if the GP took the time to do a proper medication review, he/ she would pick up this problem? How many GP's actually ask the patient when and how they take their medication, how many issue scripts regardless of when the last one was ordered, how many check the regularity of prescribing, or how often a patient has been on a particular drug! It is all too easy fro patients to order medication before the last lot has run out and over time accumulate more than they should safely keep at home? Visit the homes of the elderly and you will find enough medication to stock a large pharmacy, it is down to GP's who are paid to care for the patient! Pills can do as much harm as they can good!
