    What is DAA?

    DAA(DOSE ADMINISTRATION AID)  is one of the services that your local pharmacy can help you manage your medication. This packing of medicine service or commonly called “DOSE ADMINISTRATION AIDS” is offered to those patients who are taking a lot of medications or elderly people who need assistance in their daily medication.

    Here at the pharmacy, we pack medications for people in a nice and convenient easy format. The best thing about it is all medications are labeled into dates and times slots and are set in a weekly format. To add, the system that we used has the added convenience of being able to rip away so you don’t need to take the whole pack with you if you’re going to work for the day or for a couple of days. You can just tear as many days off as you need.
