Prescriptions for tests

Laboratory analyses are an additional way for your pharmacist to ensure, in collaboration with your doctor, that the results obtained with your medication are what were intended. Your pharmacist will also enable them to identify and analyze any problems related to a treatment in order to prevent or resolve them. Certain tests can indicate how your body is responding to your medication.

In short, your pharmacist must 

  • Study your file. 
  • Ask you if test results are available. 
  • Prescribe you a test, if necessary.
  • Write the request for the test and give it to you.
  • Analyse and interpret the results when received. 
  • Communicate the results to your doctor.

However, if immediate care is necessary, your pharmacist could instead suggest that you see a doctor urgently, or that you seek emergency care at a hospital.
