Eye conditions 2
This exercise involves dispensing a prescription whilst considering patient preferences. There is no errors or issues with this prescriptions and it should be dispensed. There is a minor issue from this prescription in that the patient’s OTC request may be as a side effect of the Estraderm (i.e. dry eyes), but could simply be from the menopause alone.
Even though the patient has taken the medication before, she is experiencing symptoms that may warrant further investigation and counseling. Estradot (estradiol) can cause side effects of concern (dry eye being one of them!). Hence further counseling should involve expressing to the patient to monitor the timing of her symptoms, the development of any new symptoms, and the effectiveness of her medication.
