How Often Do You Review Your Content?

Our content is all written by pharmacists with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Immediately before publication, it is edited and reviewed by another pharmacist (i.e., someone other than the author) for accuracy.

After publishing, our content is reviewed at least annually to ensure all the information is up to date.

What Kind Of Questions Can I Ask?

You can ask anything pharmacy or drug related! We are the experts in this regard and are happy to help with your questions on these topics.

It is important to note that we cannot give specific medical advice. However, we are happy to provide comprehensive information and insight on any topic you'd like that is likely applicable to your situation. We urge you to use our information to help you make better, informed decisions, in conjunction with your doctor and personal medical team.

For example, if you ask about a potential interaction between two drugs, we'll give you detailed information regarding those drugs and potential interactions. We'll stop short of stating specifically if you, the asker, can safely take the drug combination as we don't have your complete medical details.

How Do I Know If An Answer Is Reliable?

Every single question we receive is answered by a doctor of pharmacy, licensed in the United States.

We utilize a number of different sources for our information, including well-respected and peer-reviewed medical compendia, such as Elsevier Gold Standard and UpToDate.

Additionally, all of our answers are fact-checked and reviewed by two pharmacists and then reviewed annually for accuracy.

Can I Ask For Clarification Or More Information On An Answer?

Sure can! Email us as much as you'd like! We love hearing from our readers and those who have reached out before.

Is This Service Free?

Yes, it is. No payment or sign-up is necessary to ask a question. It's very simple in how it works. You send a message through our 'ask pharmacist' link, and you'll receive an answer. That answer will also be posted on the website.
