Do you have multiple medication prescriptions to take? Do you get frustrated having to run so many trips to the pharmacy to stay on top of all your refills?

If so, then let us help you streamline your pharmacy visits and make medication management easier with Cherry Street Pharmacy’s Medication Synchronization program.

Medication synchronization (med sync) is, “when the pharmacist coordinates your refill on your medication so you can pick them up on a single day of each month.”

The Benefits of Medication Synchronization

A study done in 2018 by Harvard Medical School found that patients on med synch programs improved medication adherence by 8% compared to non-synced patients. In addition, patients on medication synchronization programs had lower rates of outpatient visits, hospitalization, and emergency department visits.

Thus, medication synchronization drastically improves your medication adherence by making your refill schedule streamlined and simple.

Other major benefits include:

● Eliminates repeated trips to the pharmacy and the costs associated with doing so

● Minimizes confusion on which prescriptions need to be refilled

● Improves treatment by reducing the likelihood of missed or delayed refills

● Provides greater physician and pharmacist oversight of your medication including drug misuse, side effects, and errors
