Many times, medications will interact with each other, thus decreasing the effectiveness of one or more of the medications. The pharmacist will provide information about medication related problems in order to reduce emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and medication misadventuring. The face-to-face interaction establishes or enhances the pharmacist-patient relationship.
