The article reports on a study about U.S. consumers' behavior on consulting pharmacists with their medicine. Shoppers say they trust their pharmacist as a source of information on medications, but fewer than one out of four of them spoke to their pharmacist when they last filled a prescription, according to new insights gleaned in a consumer survey from New Hope, Pennsylvania-based Wilson Health Information.
