By Julie Fulmer-Mason, PharmD


(Page 3 of 3)

Keep It Simple!

  • Studies show the incidence of missed doses increases dramatically the more times you take medication per day
  • Unless directed otherwise, take your medications NO MORE than 4 times per day
  • Consult your pharmacist to determine...
    • Which medications can/can not be taken together
    • The best time of the day to take certain medications

 


Julie Fulmer-Mason, received her Doctorate in Pharmacy from the University of California San Francisco in 1998, and has practiced as a Clinical Pharmacist in the Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare System and the pharmaceutical industry. From her days of working at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California, a multitude of patients were referred to Julie with medication compliance issues.  A specific relationship forged with a patient inspired Julie to design and invent the MedFolio medication management device.
