HealthMed Lifestyle Clinic offers a range of pharmacy only and pharmacist only medications to help treat common minor ailments. We have a pharmacist on duty and appropriately trained staff members who will help you to make an informed decision on which therapy would suit you the best.
When you buy a “pharmacy medicine’ you do not need a prescription but the pharmacy assistant may ask you questions to ensure the medication is right for you. The questions help to prevent problems that could arise if the medicine was not used appropriately. Some examples of pharmacy only medications are the anti-diarrhoea medicine Loperamide (e.g. Diacare®, Imodium®, and Gastro-stop® in small packets) or the anti-histamine loratadine (e.g. Claratyne®, Allereze®, Alledine®).
When you buy a “pharmacist only medicine’ you do not need a prescription but the pharmacist must be consulted. The pharmacist may ask you questions to ensure the medicine is right for you and your symptoms and that you know how to use the medicine properly. They may also give you further advice to aid your symptoms. For example salbutamol (e.g. Ventolin®, Airomir®, Asmol®).
