What We Do

Each time your doctor writes you a prescription, your CATP Pharmacist carefully checks it to ensure that:

  • the drug, dosage, quantity, and directions for use are all correct
  • the prescription does not contradict with any of your current therapy
  • serious drug interactions won’t occur between your new prescription and existing medications or medical conditions
  • the medication is not one that you have an allergy or sensitivity to

When information is missing from your prescription or if there are other issues with your prescription, your CATP Pharmacist will work directly with your doctor to correct the issue. In some cases, your CATP Pharmacist may be able to adapt your prescription or extend your refills to ensure your therapy is continued without disruption.

Once your prescription has been checked, the Pharmacy Team prepares your Methadone dose using:

  • LiquidMedLock bottles that are leak and tamper proof
  • Methameasure – a computerised methadone dispensing pump that reads your prescription electronically and dispenses your dose accurately to 0.1mL.

For other medications including Suboxone, when your dose is prepared, your CATP Pharmacist compares your prescription label with your doctor’s original prescription and checks the contents of the prescription vial or container to ensure that you receive the right medication.

When you pick up your prescription, your CATP Pharmacist will provide counselling on the following to ensure that you will get the most from your medication:

  • what your medication has been prescribed for
  • how and when you should take it
  • how long you should take it for
  • how you will know if your medication is working and what to do if your medication is not working
  • possible side effects and what you should do if you experience any
  • how you should store your medication
  • additional information about your medical condition

CATP is a full service pharmacy and we apply the above care and focus to all of your medications needs.
