Blood pressure measurement and BMI check

In association with KEITO Ireland we can check your blood pressure and BMI. This takes a few minutes and the pharmacist is available to discuss any concerns you may have and if required, advise you on a future course of action.

Smoking Cessation

The majority of smokers would like to quit smoking at some stage in their life but often lack the motivation to take the initial step. At Healthwise Pharmacies our intention is encourage every smoker to consider the benefits of quitting.

We will provide guidance and encouragement to enable you to overcome any difficulties you may encounter when attempting to quit. Whether you have attempted to quit on numerous occasions or have never tried, our aim is to provide whatever support is required to guide you through a process from being a contented smoker to being a confident ex-smoker

EHC is most effective if taken within 12 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse, but may be taken up to 120 hours after. The medicine can only be sold after a consultation with one of our pharmacists. The consultation does not take long but will give you important information and a chance to ask any questions you may have prior to taking the medicine.
