If you are worried about being pregnant, you may want to take an emergency contraceptive pill. This is also called the ‘morning after pill’. This is now available at the Manly Care Chemist after consultation with a specially trained pharmacist and if you meet required criteria. 

The emergency contraceptive pill will be most effective if you take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex. Within 24 hours is best, but it can prevent pregnancy if taken up to 120 hours (5 days) after sex, although it;'s effect is lowered with time. So it is important you seek help as soon as possible.

Thrush 

Thrush is a fungal infection and can infect the mouth or the vagina. Treatment for either infection is available through the pharmacy. Medicines available for thrush are called "pharmacist only" medicines which means you will require a conversation with a pharmacist and your name and address will need to be recorded.

If you wish to speak in a more private setting, please indicate this to our pharmacist. They will be only to happy to take you to our consultation area.

Cold Sores

Cold Sores can be an annoying and painful condition. Previously only topical applications were available to treat your infection. Now there is an oral medication available as an alternerative. Famciclovir is available after a conversation with a pharmacist to see if it is suitable for you as this is a "pharmacist only" medicine.

Although famciclovir does not cure the viral infection, it helps to relieve the symptoms and shorten the duration of an outbreak. The best results are obtained if the medicine is started as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms of a cold sore, such as tingling, itching or burning, or the appearance of the first signs, such as redness or swelling.

Your pharmacists can ensure that you have access to the medicines you need, and that you have the tools, information and understanding to enable you to take your medicines as prescribed by your doctor. MUR is intended to improve community health and reduce hospital admissions. The pharmacist will send a report to your doctor about what you discussed and perhaps make suggestions that will help you manage your medicines better. MUR is a free service to you.
