Managing Your Medications
Prescription and nonprescription medications are important tools in achieving and maintaining wellness. If not used properly, however, the medications have the potential to be ineffective or harmful. It is estimated that 50% of medications are taken improperly.
Our PROfile programs are designed to organize and simplify the management of your medication.
FLAVORx - Ask your PROfile Pharmacist to add your favourite flavour to any of your prescription and over the counter liquid medications. Great for adults, kids and pets! All flavours are non-allergenic and sugar free!
AutoFill Plus – AutoFill Plus is a unique prescription refilling program designed to automatically refill your medications. It's all about your convenience - no more missed doses, less waiting time and fewer trips to the pharmacy. Your PROfile Pharmacist will even notify you when your prescriptions are ready for pick up and when you need to contact your physician for renewals.

Drug Recall Communication – PROfile Pharmacists monitor Health Canada and manufacturer information for medication related advisories and drug recalls. Should you be potentially affected by a recall, your PROfile Pharmacist will contact you and your doctor to provide information about the recall and suggested management, such as treatment alternatives. Your PROfile Pharmacist will also discuss how to return remaining quantities of recalled medications for safe removal and reimbursement as applicable.
