Common Ailment Prescribing

Did you know pharmacists can assess and prescribe for common ailments! 

Common ailments are uncomplicated, short-term conditions that don’t require lab tests or blood work and can often be managed with minimal treatment. They are sometimes referred to as minor ailments, but using the term common ailment helps remind us: these are common conditions that many people experience, and even if they seem minor, they should be assessed and not ignored. In fact, the sooner you treat your common ailment the better, and your family pharmacist can help you.

Pharmacists can also assess and prescribe: 

  • Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Hormonal contraception
  • Paxlovid (COVID-19 therapeutic)
  • Medications to help you quit smoking therapies and products

Pharmacists can also extend prescriptions to a maximum of 12 months. This will assist in ensuring individuals have timely access to needed medications. 

Contact your family pharmacist for services available.
