Most people think of their pharmacist simply as the person who fills their prescription – but pharmacists are trained medical professionals who have earned their Pharm.D.

As part of their education, pharmacists study medications, including how they work within the body, how they interact, and even how they treat diseases on a molecular level. What this means is that your local pharmacist is a fantastic resource.

Your pharmacist can help answer questions about any medications you are taking, provide safety information, and help monitor your side effects, among many other things. So, let’s take a closer look at how your pharmacist can be a resource for managing your health.

1. Your Pharmacist Can Help You Safely Use Medications

Pharmacists are an important part of your healthcare team – especially if you have a medical condition that requires you to take prescription medications.

Your pharmacist is able to provide you with clear instructions on how to take your medications, including:

  • If your medications should be taken with a meal or on an empty stomach
  • How frequently and at what times of the day you should take a medication
  • When and how you should discontinue taking a medication
  • How to properly store your medications

Finding Drug Interactions

Because pharmacists stay current on the latest pharmacology research, they can help you identify potential interactions between medications. This is important for patients who take multiple medications and for patients who see multiple doctors.

For example, a patient may be prescribed drugs by both their cardiologist and their primary physician. Both doctors may not always have complete information on what medications the other has prescribed. However, your pharmacist will be able to tell you:

  • If these medications have potential interactions that you should be aware of
  • If any over-the-counter medications or supplements that you’re taking can also interact with your prescriptions
  • How to tell if you’re experiencing a drug interaction or simply normal side effects

Of course, one of the best ways you can help your doctors and your pharmacist is by providing them with up to date and accurate information. To help, create a complete list of your medications and take a copy with you to the pharmacy.

Provide Your Pharmacist With A List Of Your Medications

Whenever you go to pick-up prescriptions, bring your full list of the prescription, and non-prescription, medications that you’re taking. Also include any vitamins or other nutritional supplements you take.

Give or show a copy of this list to your pharmacist. This is especially important if you don’t always fill your prescriptions at the same pharmacy.

Using this list, your pharmacist will have a much clearer picture of your medication history. As a result, they can more easily identify potential drug interactions, and suggest alternatives. So, keep a list handy and be sure to bring it along with you the next time you visit the pharmacy.

2. Your Pharmacist Can Help Identify Or Explain Potential Side Effects

While your pharmacist is a great resource for identifying potential drug interactions, they’re also able to tell you about medication side effects.

Pharmacists not only spend years studying how medications work, but they also stay updated on current drug information. This means they have a wealth of knowledge on what you can expect when you start taking a new medication. Your pharmacist can tell you:

  • What side effects you might experience
  • Which side effects are normal
  • How long you can expect a side effect to last
  • When a side effect is serious and requires further attention

Because medications often work in complex ways, and our understanding of how they work can change as we learn more about them, pharmacists are a go-to resource for the most recent and thorough drug information. That means your pharmacist can literally be a life saver.

Talk With Your Pharmacist About New Prescriptions

When you start taking a new prescription drug, always ask your pharmacist about potential side effects. They’ll be able to keep you informed on what you can expect, and they’re able to provide you with additional details about potentially life-threatening side effects.

Your pharmacist might even know of a newly available alternative drug with fewer side effects than the one you’re currently taking. You can then ask your doctor if it’s an option to help treat your condition.

3. Your Pharmacist Can Help You Manage Your Medications

If you have multiple prescriptions, then you know how difficult it can be to always keep track of all of your medications. While you can’t take your pharmacist home with you, they are an excellent resource for helping you to manage your prescriptions.

Your pharmacist can provide tips on how to carefully monitor your medications, and can share what resources are available to you. They may even recommend options like:

Just as importantly, your pharmacist is able to tell you what to do if you miss a dose of your medication. Depending on the type of medication, size of the dose, and how long it’s been since you last took it, your pharmacist will help you decide on the best course of action.

Ask Your Pharmacist About Medication Options

New medications are being developed and then approved by the FDA every month. If you’re taking multiple medications, your pharmacist may know of newer alternatives. This can help reduce the dose or number of medications you take to treat certain conditions.

Regularly check in with your pharmacist to see if they know of any new options to make your treatment easier to manage. You can then follow-up with your primary physician to see if this is a good option for you.

For example, any time you ask us to store info about your prescriptions (e.g. if you want to price-check the same meds every 30 days without having to re-enter every drug again each month, or if you want to set up refill reminders), we need to keep those details safe & secure. This means that we need to set you up with an account that can be verified.

Prescription pricing is far more volatile than most patients realize, and it’s particularly noticeable for those without insurance. Similar to how gas prices will often change daily (going both up & down on the same day at different gas stations in the same town), when filling prescriptions a patient might also experience high levels of volatility. Don’t be surprised to see different drug prices at many of your neighborhood pharmacies (while also witnessing rising prices at one store and falling prices for the exact same drug at another).

Save More With a Multi-stop Price-check. A Quick-start Guide, from “ScriptSave University”

Helping Others – Rate A Pharmacy. A Quick-start Guide, from “ScriptSave University”

Rating your experience of using the ScriptSave WellRx card or coupon at your pharmacy is a fast and easy way for us to see which pharmacies are up-to-date with the program, as well as helping us identify any that might benefit from some additional support. Furthermore, by giving your ‘Thumbs-up/down’ for the specific pharmacy that you used, you’ll be able to help others when they make a choice about where to use their ScriptSave WellRx card.

How to Rate Your Experience

  • Step 1. Use the main menu to navigate to, “Find a Pharmacy Near Me“.
  • Step 2. Enter the pharmacy name and the zip code (see screenshot below).
  • Step 3. Select the correct pharmacy from the list of options, then chose the Thumbs-up or down (see screenshot below).

Why Rate Your Pharmacy Experience Using ScriptSave WellRx?

More than 65,000 pharmacies are contracted to be part of the ScriptSave WellRx program. Although these numbers are impressive, it all comes undone if a member has difficulty using their card or coupon on the day they need to fill their prescription.

At ScriptSave WellRx, we fully understand that when we present pricing options for a specific pharmacy on our website, we create high expectations with our members that the card/coupon will be accepted at that pharmacy. Therefore, if things don’t go to plan, we want to know.

Insider Tip:

To help avoid a frustrating experience at the pharmacy, always take a moment to double-check that you’ve price-checked the correct strength, quantity, etc. for your prescription. The ScriptSave WellRx website & mobile app will start by showing prices for the most commonly dispensed version of a drug. However, if your prescription is for a different quantity of pills, another medication brand, or a different strength of cream (for example), you’ll need to make changes to the default settings. Learn how to do that by reviewing our related Quick-start Guide for Getting the most accurate price estimates, HERE.

More Quick-start Guides:

If you’ve ever looked closely at a ScriptSave WellRx card or coupon, you’ve probably noticed some strange-looking codes and numbers on it (E.g. ID#, followed by Group # = 977, RxBIN = 006053 and RxPCN = MSC). These codes may not seem like much but, to the pharmacist, they are critical.

“Print” Your Coupons … Without a Printer. A Quick-start Guide, from “ScriptSave University”

When your pharmacist enters those details into their computer, they are able to see the special price we have negotiated for your prescription. When the pharmacist has no codes to enter, the computer will simply display the regular cash-price for your medication.

In short: the codes on your discount card help determine the price you pay out-of-pocket at the pharmacy.

Get Your Prescription Coupons Without a Printer

At this point, you may be wondering if you’re required to print your prescription coupons or card in order to use ScriptSave WellRx. The short answer to this question is, no. Printing a physical card/coupon is not necessary to save on your medications, as long as you have the proper codes to show your pharmacist. In fact, between our website and mobile app, if you don’t have access to a printer, you certainly still have options:

  1. If you install the ScriptSave WellRx mobile app (available for both Apple and Android), you’ll find a digital version of a savings card when you open the app.
  2. If you don’t want the app, but you do want a digital card for your phone, you can visit the ScriptSave WellRx website and select the “Download Card” option from the “Get Savings Card” page.
  3. If you don’t want to download a card to your mobile device, but you still want to be able to access the all-important details from your phone, you can email yourself a card (also from the “Get Saving Card” page).
  4. If you think you might lose track of an emailed card, you can use the camera on your phone to take a photo of your screen. Then just show the photo to the pharmacist when you fill your prescription.
  5. If your phone can’t store photos, we can send you the important details via a text message (then just show the text message to the pharmacist).

If none of these options work for you, there is another easy solution: simply write the codes from your Rx savings card or coupon on a piece of paper and show it to your pharmacist when picking up your medication. (When you visit the pharmacy, hand the paper to the pharmacist and say, “Could you ring-up my prescription using these processing codes, please?”)

This short tutorial is designed to address the most common mistake that users of the ScriptSave’s WellRx program make. It happens every day, and few things cause as much frustration among users as this. However, it’s easy to avoid. Therefore, we rate this tutorial as a “MUST READ” for everyone.

Getting the Most Accurate Price Estimates. A Quick-start Guide, from “ScriptSave University”

A common complaint from people filling prescription is as follows:

“The price at the pharmacy was much higher than the price on the website/app! What went wrong?”

  • Why does this happen?
    • Prescription drugs are not a “one size, fits all” kind of thing. They come in many different strengths & quantities, as well as being available in different forms (i.e. tablets, pills, creams, ointments, etc.). There might also be different manufacturers making their own versions of a drug.
  • What do you need to do?
    • When you use the price-check tool on the ScriptSave WellRx website or app it is highly important to make sure that the default selections for all the different variables are matching with the details on your prescription.
    • If the default selections don’t match your prescription, you will need to change them manually. This is VERY EASY to do; for details, see the guide below. (NOTE: if you don’t make the necessary edits, you will find yourself looking at the wrong drug. As such, you should not be surprised if the pharmacist tells you a different price).

The Solution (easy as 1-2-3):

To avoid the frustration of inaccurate price quotes for your prescription medications, follow our easy step-by-step guide:

  • Step 1. Enter the drug name (without any details about strength, quantity, form, etc.) and your zip code.
NOTE: Only enter the drug name (then double-check the strength, qty, etc. on NEXT screen)
  • Step 2. (on the screen that will follow) Review the default selection for strength, quantity, etc.
NOTE: Check for (and manually edit) brand/generic, strength, quantity and form
  • Step 3. Understand that the default settings reflect the most commonly dispensed version of the drug-name that you searched for. However, if the details on your prescription are different in any way, you will need to make changes.

Insider Tip:

If your prescription does not match the default details in the price-check tool and you’re fed up with constantly having to edit them each time you price-check, you can save your specific settings to “My Medicine Chest” – read the related Quick-start Guide on “Why Should I Create an Account?HERE (or jump directly to creating a FREE account HERE).

Diagnoses, treatments, surgeries. At every stage of your health journey, finding a professional second opinion, gaining new perspectives or searching for different resources, in your community or online, is one of the best ways you can advocate for yourself as a patient.

While the medical community agrees second opinions aren’t necessary in every case–a cold is most likely a cold–most doctors recommend a second opinion in certain cases, and some insurance companies cover them. A good second opinion could save you time, money, even your life.

get a free scriptsave wellrx discount card

Seeking a Second Opinion

A few reasons to seek a second opinion are, if:

  • Your doctor is not a specialist or familiar with your condition. Specialists are dedicated to their field and can ask questions and notice symptoms so subtle others may miss.
  • You feel your concerns aren’t taken seriously. Mental health is as important as physical health and that starts with medical teams that listen to you, the patient.
  • You’re not confident in your diagnosis or treatment plan. Doubt, gut feelings, or intuition can all be enough reason to seek another opinion. You know best what is working for your body, or how well a diagnosis “fits.”
  • You’ve completed treatment and haven’t improved. Studies show our brains follow the same train of thought over time, creating natural blind spots in the way we think. Doctors are no exception. A fresh perspective could find a misdiagnosis or bring new skills that could lead to the correct treatment.

If you feel you want or need a second opinion, it’s easier than most people think. The important thing is to find a medical professional you are confident in and comfortable with.

You can ask your doctor for their recommendation or do your own research with the help of your insurance company. Make sure to get copies of your medical records to share with your new doctor. You’ll also want to compile lists of all the prescriptions you are taking, any relevant test results, and your past and current treatment plans.

Whether it’s a new approach or a different way of thinking about treatment, second opinions give you information necessary for you to make the best decisions about your health.

It’s clear we benefit from second opinions on treatments; but when’s the last time you thought about getting a second opinion on medical costs, like prescriptions?

The Two-Second Second Opinion

The ScriptSave WellRx app is the free, two-second ‘second opinion’ in your pocket that brings you lower prescription drug costs by negotiating drug prices with independent and chain pharmacies in bulk. Sometimes for even lower than your insurance cost.

Now, instead of taking the number at the pharmacy register at face value, one simple search shows you the out-of-pocket price for your prescriptions with a variety of discounts, all available for you to choose from. And because you can access WellRx online or through the app, it’s easier than ever to find the second opinion on prescription costs you need in real-time.

Simply go to, type in your or your family’s prescription and dosage information, and WellRx will find the biggest savings from the closest of over 65,000 pharmacies. The only thing you have to do is save your discount and show it to the pharmacist at the register. No extra costs, no sign ups, just the everyday savings you and your family needs.

See for yourself the difference a second opinion can make.
