Area Agency on Aging screenings aim to curb bad medication interactions

Monday, June 09, 2014

Are you 60 or older, taking five or more medications and living in Central Texas? Call CAPCOG's Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area to schedule a free medication screening.

AAACAP, with help from a St. David's Foundation grant, offers free screenings to residents and family caregivers across the region. Aimed to reduce the risk of medication problems, screenings include a pharmacist review of prescription medications and over-the-counter products for potentially harmful interactions, reactions and related issues.

Participants will receive a written report that includes information such as when and how to take their medications and any special precautions. They can additionally opt for a phone consultation with the pharmacist. Medications can include over-the-counter products or prescription products, creams and liquid medication.

Set up your medication screening today by calling 512-916-6062.
