Hayfever is in the air
Much and all as most of us love Spring, for some of us, it marks the arrival of the dreaded hay fever. Over Winter much media attention was focussed on the negative impact of colds, influenza and, of course, Covid-19. Hayfever doesn’t ever seem to attract the same media attention yet it is as negatively impactful in many ways. The number of “sick days” experienced, particularly in our little corner of the World, is actually higher than that seen from colds and flu’s during Winter. So the impact is quite significant.
In researching the latest on Hayfever to train our staff I’ve noticed a few improvements to the treatment guidelines that may provide better relief to sufferers. I’ve made a few notes below that may assist relief hayfever symptoms. As always, if you would like to know more please come in and speak with one of our pharmacists:
Our Best Price Promise
We are aware that there is much variation in pricing between different pharmacies.

Do you dispose of your unwanted medicines correctly?
This is a remarkably important question given that the impact on our environment is far more dramatic than you probably imagine.
There is mounting evidence that unwanted medicines that end up in landfill (they’ve been put into rubbish bins) or that go down the drain actually end up back in our aquatic ecosystems. It follows that they can then end up in our plant and animal food sources. Analysis of the water in Sydney Harbour found detectable levels of 7 different commonly used medicines. There is strong belief this would be reflected across the water bodies in all major cities in Australia.
This highlights just how important it is to dispose of old medicines correctly. For the record, the lowest environmental impact disposal method is high temperature incineration. There is a national system that is run through every community pharmacy in Australia to dispose of unwanted medicines in this way. So, the moral of the story is don’t throw or flush your old medicines, take them back to the pharmacy.
