Prescriptions

Prescriptions

Prescriptions are an incredibly important part of your physical, mental and overall health. Our Oak Pharmacists are here to not only prepare your medications accurately when you need them, but also to ensure your medication is appropriate and safe for you. 

Pharmacists are the experts on your medication, and we use this knowledge to inform you on why, how and when to take your medication, possible side effects, assess for interactions, and discuss the impact and efficacy of the medication on your medical conditions. 

Licensed and regulated by the Ontario College of Pharmacists, our pharmacists are highly trained and continue to receive regular education and training to remain current in our field. 

Hospital Discharges

Being discharged from hospital can be a challenging time, and your Pharmacist is here to help with making sure the process is smooth. Coordinating your medications from hospital to your home, any medication changes or health changes, and ensuring you have what you need when you’re discharged to be healthy and comfortable at home is our top priority.

Education and Advice

Pharmacists are experts in medication and medication management, and our Pharmacists are an excellent resource for information on medications, proper doses, disease management, signs and symptoms, adverse reactions and drug interactions. 

Our Pharmacists will provide education to you on how to take medication, side effects, effectiveness and evidence, overall disease management, interactions, instruction on how to use special devices such as glucose monitors, inhalers or injectable medications and more! 

Medication Consultation

Our Pharmacists will meet with you one-on-one to assess all of your prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, your medical conditions and can provide a care plan and recommendations to you and your doctor. 

Medication reviews are incredibly beneficial to continue to ensure we have all the most current information related to your medication, medical conditions, vitamins and supplements, lab work, etc. The Pharmacist will answer any questions you may have, provide advice or recommendations, and can work with your doctor or nurse practitioner as required.

Vitamin and Supplement Consults

Quitting Smoking

Smoking is one of the number one causes of preventable diseases and death in Canada. Smoking increases your risk of hypertension, stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), damage to kidneys and eyes, asthma, lung cancer and other types of cancer. 

Quitting smoking is one of the best ways to improve your health immediately and in the future! And even though many people know it’s good for their health, quitting smoking can be hard and challenging.

In 2023 the scope of practice for a Pharmacist expanded to include the ability to assess and treat some common ailments. A Pharmacy Care Clinic is a clinic run by a Pharmacist! The Pharmacist will assess the ailment the patient presents, and make recommendations. If appropriate the recommendations could include a prescription medication! Then you have the choice to fill the script on site with us. The Pharmacy Care Clinic is a fast and easy method for our community to access healthcare!
