Benefits of Medication Monitoring
It’s important to know that many patients take multiple medications, including over-the-counter drugs, herbal supplements, and a variety of other natural remedies. Patients overlook or often forget to inform providers of all the different substances they’re taking, and this can present the potential for adverse drug interactions.
Medication monitoring helps identify potential drug interactions that can affect a patient’s mental and physical state. This permits health care providers to determine and document if the patient is properly taking prescribed medications and/or illicit substances. Test results offer providers the information needed to create the most suitable patient treatment plan.
Many states are looking to reduce the prescription overdose and misuse epidemic, they have enacted different types of legislation to address this increasingly important public health issues.
