High blood pressure is a common cause of a lot of heart diseases, kidney diseases and eye problems. It can go undetected as it is possible to have high blood pressure with no symptoms. The best way to know whether you have high blood pressure is to measure it. Every Tuesday, drop in at the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, (Lakeshore road) and have our pharmacist check your blood pressure.
At the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, your health is our priority. The same holds true for your pet’s health. Taking extra care of our animal friends when they get sick is usually filled with good intentions but unfortunately, they might not be cooperating with you if you are trying to give them medications. We understand where they are coming from. I never met anyone that said ‘Yeah!! I can’t wait to take more medications” 🙂
Having a satisfying sleep is vital to our physical and mental health. Insomnia can present as difficulty falling asleep, difficulty maintaining sleep and/or a decrease in sleep quality. Poor sleep during the night can leave you unrefreshed and tired in the morning. It causes other problems like decreased alertness, irritability, depression, alcohol abuse, decreased prodductivity and a decrease in quality of life. Insomnia can also lead to significant weight gain over time.

Getting healthier is mostly about lifestyle choices and this year at the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy on Lakeshore road, we will be providing a lot of support to help you get to your health goals.
