TREATING LOWER BACK PAIN
Many things can cause low back pain. Sometimes, the exact cause of the pain is not known. When left untreated, it can become chronic and can have a significant impact on quality of life. That is why it is important to do something about it.
ADVICE ON OTC MEDICATION
If you don’t know which over-the-counter medication to choose to relieve your symptoms, don’t be shy to ask your pharmacist!
MEDICATION FOR CHRONIC CONDITIONS
If you have a chronic condition and require regular medication, your pharmacist is here to facilitate your day to day. They can extend prescriptions and re-prescribe your medication, as well as show you tools to help you get the most out of your treatment.
Sticking to your medication isn’t always a walk in the park. Your pharmacist is here to make minor or major adjustments to your therapy or provide you with custom formulas and innovative packaging to make it all easier.
