What is Local Pharmacist

People who are managing chronic inflammatory conditions such as psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, gout or pseudogout and osteoarthritis of the thumb joint will likely work with a local rheumatologist, which is a doctor who is trained in treating inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. In addition to working with a local rheumatologist, a person with an inflammatory condition will probably work closely with a local pharmacist. Local pharmacists are medical providers who are educated in providing prescription medication to people of all ages. A local pharmacist may work at a hospital, clinic, nursing home or drugstore/grocery store. From properly storing medication to understanding side effects, a local pharmacist can help you understand the benefits and risks of your arthritis medications such as prednisone. It’s important your local pharmacist knows all the medications you’re taking, because there may be drug interactions between certain medications. For example, the arthritis medication leflunomide may interact with the blood thinner Warfarin. Your local pharmacist can work closely with your local rheumatologist and any other healthcare providers as needed, from your local urologist physician to your local dermatologist
