Check your medicine is still right

If you take medication regularly, you should usually have a medication review at least once a year.

This is where your GP or nurse checks that the medication you're taking is still right for you.

You should have a medication review if:

  • you're having issues with your medication, for example side effects
  • your medication review is overdue by 3 months or more
  • a GP or nurse has told you to book a review

How it works

You can do the review online, and then your GP or nurse will contact you if they need to see you in person.

Before you start

You need to know:

  • the names of your medicines, including over the counter medicines like painkillers, antihistamines, vitamins and supplements
  • how often you take them
  • why you take them, for example if you have acid reflux

It's also helpful to know your:

  • weight
  • height
  • blood pressure
