DIS­POSE OF OLD MED­I­CA­TION PROP­ERLY AT PRICE­LINE PHAR­MACY

With the win­ter months now well and truly upon us, there is no bet­ter time to clean out that medicine cabi­net and review the medicine you and your fam­ily take.

Do you have med­i­ca­tion you’re no longer pre­scribed?

Do you have med­i­ca­tion ‘just in case’?

Do you have out-of-date med­i­ca­tion?

Re­mov­ing out-of-date and un­wanted med­i­ca­tions can avoid con­fu­sion, pre­vent mis­takes and makes your home a safer place.

Un­wanted medicines are of­ten thrown out with the rub­bish, tipped down the sink or into the toi­let.

How­ever, this starts a prob­lem that can harm the en­vi­ron­ment we live in.

It is time to review your medicine cabi­net by check­ing ex­piry dates and bring­ing any un­wanted or out-of-date med­i­ca­tions into your lo­cal Price­line Phar­macy for cor­rect med­i­ca­tion dis­posal.

Did you know that only 65 per cent of Aus­tralians take their medicines as pre­scribed by their doc­tor?

Do you take your medicines pre­scribed to you by your doc­tor 100% of the time? Do you miss doses?

Do you for­get to get your pre­scrip­tion refilled be­fore you run out?

If you find your­self an­swer­ing yes to these ques­tions, Price­line Phar­macy can help you.

With Aus­tralians liv­ing busy lifestyles, be­ing a mem­ber of our Price­line Phar­macy Health Plus pro­gram is the an­swer.

Mem­bers can ac­cess free med­i­ca­tion re­views to help man­age their med­i­ca­tions, their pre­scrip­tions can be left safely with the phar­ma­cist, they re­ceive free SMS re­minders so they never for­get to get their script refilled, and their script will be ready when they ar­rive in store.

They also re­ceive pri­or­ity book­ings for health checks and flu clin­ics.

An­other ser­vice of­fered to you by Price­line Phar­macy is hav­ing your med­i­ca­tion pack­aged into a dose ad­min­is­tra­tion aid such as a Web­ster pack.

If you would like to dis­cuss how to im­prove your med­i­ca­tion com­pli­ance or sign up to­day to our pro­gram, one of our friendly staff will be happy to as­sist you.
