Abstract : 

The target patients of the Personalized Dosing Service (PDS) have usually been people with chronic polymedicated diseases with physical or cognitive difficulties to properly manage their medication. However, there are other groups likely to equally benefit from this tool, such as patients without deficiencies or dependencies but due to the complexity of the treatment regimen to be administered, they can occasionally take advantage of this service. In this case, we will see a patient used to handling not only her own medication but also that of her husband but due to a changing pattern of anxiolytic and antidepressant medications, she prefers to rely on the community pharmacy for proper administration.
