KEEPING THE BODY IN BALANCE
Many prescribed medicines can cause side effects like depleting your body of essential vitamins and minerals.
For example: If you are a taking long term medication for indigestion or reflux such as Omeprazole, you may become deficient in magnesium. Symptoms of this most commonly include cramps, sleeplessness, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and irritability. Untreated magnesium deficiency may also be associated to strokes and heart attacks.
DIETARY FOOD OPTIONS
Eating foods like nuts, cereals and dark green vegetables will help to keep your body in balance however often you may require additional magnesium supplements like Go Healthy 500mg 1-A-Day Magnesium. This supplement is a natural marine-sourced magnesium. Talk to our expert team about how to keep your body in balance when taking long term medications.
LONG TERM CONDITIONS (LTC)
A new service for managing your medicines, called the Long Term Conditions service, is available at all of our pharmacies. You may qualify for this service if you are having difficulties with your medicines.
This service is designed for patients who are taking a lot of medicines, have several health complaints, have complicated medicine schedules, or have difficulty in remembering to take their medicines, for example, diabetics, heart patients or chronic pain sufferers.
If you qualify for the LTC, your pharmacist will compile a list of all your current medicines and will ensure all your medicines start and finish at the same time. Together you and your pharmacist will decide on how often you need your medicines dispensed - weekly, monthly, or three monthly depending on what will work best for you. Your pharmacist can even remind you when your medicines are due for collection or when a new prescription is required.
What will it cost?
There is no cost for LTC consultations or for the reminders for collecting medicines and reminders to get new prescriptions. Fees may apply should you decide to have your medicines prepared in conveniently labelled medico packs.
What do I do now?
Pop in to one of our pharmacies and talk to our pharmacists today. We will be pleased to help you with the LTC service. No appointment necessary.
