Pharmacist: Talk to your pharmacist. Compliance with medications is very hard. As you need to take a birth control pill and you take a pill for diabetes it will be challenging. Your pharmacist can help. Since they concentrate on the medications only they can make suggestions on the best time to help with compliance. Walgreen's will be offering consulting in the future. Call your pharmacist today.
