Ever walked into a chemist and felt overwhelmed by all of the different medicines and vitamins? This week is all about being Medicine Wise. 💊
Whether you’re taking prescribed medication or over the counter supplements it’s time to question what they are for, how you are taking them and what potential side effects they have. If medicines are not used correctly, serious issues can occur. Each year 230,000 Australians are hospitalised with problems by their medicines. It is vital that your medications are reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure they are still needed.
So next time your getting a script make sure you’ve got all your information. If you have any concerns or questions please pop by and see me in clinic.
Take care and stay healthy 😘
