- The pharmacist will inform you on possible side effects of your medication, and interactions with drugs prescribed to you by other hospitals. The pharmacy will also keep a record of your allergies to help make sure your medication is safe for you to take.

- The patient is free to choose any dispensing pharmacy as his/her family pharmacy.
Please present your prescription to a dispensing pharmacy no later than 4 days from the day the prescription is written.
