Medicine "Brown Bag" Event


Many patients take over-the-counter medications and supplements along with prescription medicines without understanding the possible side effects or drug interactions. To ensure patients are taking medications with the utmost safety and efficiency, White Drug Pharmacy will be hosting a "Brown Bag" event at the Health Fair, offering patients a chance to bring all of their medications and supplements to review with a pharmacist.

The community is invited to pick up their brown bag at the White Drug Store location at 402 E Main St in Sidney prior to the event, and then place all of their medications in the brown bag and bring them to the White Drug "Brown Bag" booth at the health fair. Don't forget to include all prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, herbal medicines, vitamins and supplements.

There will be gifts and prizes to redeem for each brown bag returned to the fair. A pharmacist will be available to review medications, answer questions and discuss what the medication is for, special instructions for taking the medicine, possible side effects and drug interactions.

The "Brown Bag" event is part of the Health Fair on Tuesday, March 25th 2014, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. For more information about the "Brown Bag" event, please call 406-482-1420.
