To ensure that medications are used safely and effectively, patients are asked to review and follow the suggestions outlined below.

Brooksville, Florida — July 19, 2012

We turned to leading pharmaceutical company MCR American Pharmaceuticals for some advice regarding medicine safety. The Brooksville-based company suggested the following.

It's important for patients to communicate with their pharmacist. MCR American Pharmaceuticals recommends patients become active listeners by taking notes and repeating the instructions given to ensure complete understanding.

"Always ask questions. Never hesitate to ask your pharmacist about your medications," said owner of MCR American Pharmaceuticals, David Daniel Ambrose.

Next, it's important to read the prescription label carefully and examine the medication as soon as it's received. If something looks strange, ask for clarification.

Furthermore, know what to expect from the medication. Know the medication's purpose and how long until results will show.

Finally ask the pharmacist about avoiding certain foods, beverages, and other medicinal items that may cause side effects if paired with the medication.

"The advice MCR American Pharmaceuticals provides is accurate and highly important to follow," said a local pharmacist who wished to remain anonymous.
