Do you take multiple (over 5) medicines? It can easily become confusing! MedsCheck aims to enhance the quality use of medicines and reduce adverse medication effects. This consultation is intended for anyone who would like to know more about their medicines, particularly what they are used for and how they can affect other medical conditions. Our pharmacists will also advise the best way to store and take your medicines.
In addition, we also offer a specialised Diabetes MedsCheck, with a focus on type 2 diabetes medication management.
Please contact us for more info. No appointment required!
A Medication Profile comprehensively records all medication being taken (including prescription, over-the-counter and supplementary medicines) plus details of any allergies. This is a valuable resource to both you and your pharmacist. It provides your pharmacist with an overview of your medication history so they can make the most informed recommendations. Your profile can also be summarised on a convenient wallet card, so you always have the information at your fingertips (particularly handy if you’re travelling, seeing a new doctor or filling in paperwork).
To provide the best in pharmacist care, maintaining and updating your Medication Profile (plus accompanying wallet card) is a core service provided by Thrive Pharmacy to our ongoing patients.
Taking multiple medicines at different times of the day can become overwhelming and difficult to manage. In addition, accidentally missing or doubling up on a dosage can have potentially serious adverse health effects.
Medication packing provides a simple and easy way to ensure medication is taken correctly. At Thrive Pharmacy, we recommend the innovative Webster-pak medication management tool. Instead of handing over a jumble of packages and bottles, Webster-pak allows us to dispense your medicines clearly sorted into an easy-to-follow daily schedule. This economical tool provides peace-of-mind and is a visible reminder to take medication.
