Meet Pharmacist and Meds

The Mood Disorders Association is starting a program for patients taking psychiatric medications. Patients will have the opportunity to speak to a pharmacist, ask questions, and have a private and confidential review of medications. Please see attachment for more details.
A pharmacist from the Medicine Shoppe will be in the MDA office on March 29, from 1:00 to 3:30 pm. If you would like to book an appointment, please email or phone 604-873-0103, and I shall set up a time for you.
Thank you,

Ever wondered how the medication that you are taking works?
Should I take them with food, without food, with coffee or no coffee?
