Rx Tips For Summer Break – Ask The Pharmacist

By University of Houston Parent & Family Programs


Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, time away from school, preferably on a much-needed vacation! It’s important to consider how these changes affect those taking chronic medication.

Staying Adherent

Prepare extra reminders on your smartphone so you can stay on track of when your medication is due to refill.

Plan in advance

Be sure to stock a full supply of your medication, plus extra. Many insurance companies allow for a 90-day supply of medication which not only brings cost-savings to you but convenience. Talk to our pharmacist about any insurance or doctor restrictions and other options available to you.

Medication Safety

As the weather heats up, properly storing your medication is important. For medications that require temperature controls — such as insulin, many specialty medications, and various other creams and gels — you may want to store in a cooler with an ice pack when traveling.

We are located in Health 2, Room 1211. Contact our pharmacy staff with any questions at 713-743-5125 or visit us at Campus Pharmacy Website uh.edu/healthcenter/services/pharmacy.
