A Heart for Health
The National Department of Health together with the South African Pharmacy Council was proud to announce the theme for September being Pharmacy Month 2018: Use Medication Wisely.
Taking your medication wisely is a rather collective idea for various aspects that come together to ensure a healthy usage of your medicine. Fortunately, Mopani Pharmacy simplifies the way our patients think about taking their medicine, whether chronic or something as simple as a daily vitamin.
If you have various kinds of medicine to take for a set period of time, it may become quite confusing regarding what pills to take when. Something elementary such as familiarising yourself with the shape and colour of each pill/capsule and maybe assigning your own creative name to them could prevent you from accidently (and crucially) taking the wrong medication. Also helpful, find out what the primary function of the medicine is. Mopani Pharmacists will always strive to provide the most informative service possible to guarantee a patient is clued up at all times!
Using medicine wisely could be the key to maintaining your good health or effectively healing you of illness. It is often the small things that make a difference in the way we manage our medication. Rely on Mopani Pharmacy to attend to all your pharmaceutical needs and provide you with the best quality healthcare. Taking your meds doesn’t have to be such an unbearable experience after all.
