An article for Best Life explores the “common cold.” Michael Awadalla, PharmD, BCGP, Executive Vice President Office of Applied Pharmacotherapy, notes that it’s important to consult with a pharmacist prior to beginning a new cold medicine, whether this is a prescription or a drug found over the counter. According to Dr. Awadalla, this includes herbal products, which can also contribute to drug interactions.

As Dr. Awadalla shares, “Pharmacists are uniquely educated and trained to look at a person’s entire medication routine and address potential drug interactions.”
