General Health Questions
Brant Arts medication reviews or MedsChecks, provide an opportunity for patients to meet one-on-one with their pharmacist, helping them to identify and solve common issues related to medications.
During a MedsCheck, pharmacists help patients understand drugs, strengths, adverse effects, and instructions for use while ensuring that patients are taking their medications as their doctor has directed. As part of this service, pharmacists provide patients with an accurate and complete medication list, which they may keep and take to their next physician or hospital visit, or use when travelling.
All MedsCheck services are available to patients on 3 or more regular prescription medications at no charge. Contact us today for a MedsCheck.

As compounds are individually formulated using raw ingredients, they do not always have a DIN (Drug Identification Number). A DIN is a number given to a manufactured product by Health Canada. Many compounds are covered by private insurance plans but they often require manual submission. You may need to speak to a representative at your insurance company for assistance on submission.
