In this episode, Dr. Melissa and I discuss how important it is to be educated about the medications your doctor is prescribing and the supplements you may be taking as well. Do you know why you are taking your medications? Do you know how long you are supposed to take them for? If you’ve been told you need to take them for life, have you been given any other options so that you don’t have to take them for life? The body is designed to self-heal, and we do need medications from time to time, but in today’s world, too many people are on 6 or more medications that they believe they need for life. Dr. Melissa’s area of specialty as a Concierge Pharmacist is helping you understand why a medication has been prescribed, and if that is actually the right medication for your unique body, and giving you options as to how you can come off the medication safely so you don’t have to take them for life. She also has a great free gift that you’ll want to check out below!
