Kim DeRhodes, RPh
A CMC Rx specialty, natural medicine medication therapy management is designed to guide you through the proper use of prescription medications and dietary supplements, herbals and vitamins.
Studies show that about 83 percent of all households use dietary supplements. However, it is often difficult to know which supplements are right for you. Dietary supplements can interact with many common prescription medications and may interfere with treatment you are receiving for a health problem.
In addition, dietary supplements are not subject to the FDA standards that are applied to prescription drugs. Lack of regulation allows many low quality products to be sold. It is difficult for consumers to educate themselves and sort fact from fiction.
Certified Natural Medicine Pharmacist, Kim DeRhodes, can help you sort through all this confusion. During a one-hour private consultation, she will review your current prescription medications and dietary supplements to make sure you are using them effectively and safely.
Call CMC Rx at CMC-Morrocroft Medical Plaza at 704-512-6040 for an appointment to discuss how you can safely integrate vitamins, herbs and other dietary supplements into your health plan.
