You wake up in the middle of the night with chills, even though you’re buried in your duvet. Or, your child is crying, with a forehead that’s hot to the touch. All signs point to fever, but you’ll need to get out your thermometer to confirm.
A fever is a temporary rise in body temperature (anything over 37.6°C or 99.7°F) designed to fight off infection. Depending on the style of thermometer, you can take someone’s temperature in the ear, under the tongue, or in the armpit.
Ask our pharmacist about the correct dosing for fever-reducing medications like ibuprofen and acetaminophen, to help keep you or your family comfortable until the fever passes.
Find more information from the Canadian Paediatric Society on treating your child’s fever:

Psoriasis is a disorder of the immune system that causes skin rashes with itchy, scaly patches that can be painful and embarrassing. Psoriasis can impact a person’s relationships, self-esteem, and even their work.
Read more about this disease, which affects as many as three percent of Canadians: https://www.canadianpsoriasisnetwork.com/psoriasis-have/
There’s no cure for psoriasis, but there are a variety of treatment options, including prescription creams, ointments, and oral or injectable medications.
Ask our pharmacist if you have any questions about your treatment medications, or if you suspect you may have psoriasis.
Keep your little ones safe this Halloween – and have fun on the spookiest night of the year by planning ahead and following a few golden rules:
• Give each child a flashlight to carry to make them more visible to cars and other pedestrians and encourage them to always cross at the corner.
• Let kids draw or design the jack-o-lantern, then have an adult carve it.
• Choose costumes that are fitted (which don’t pose a tripping hazard) and use makeup instead of masks, so they don’t interfere with your child’s vision or breathing.
A runny nose, body aches, fever, and maybe even a sore throat, too. These are the classic symptoms of the flu – and there are ways to help avoid them this season.
Your best defense against this nasty bug is the flu shot. It prevents you from getting very sick and protects the people around you. By getting your flu shot, you are less likely to spread the virus to family, friends, and colleagues.
Read more about the flu shot: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/flu-influenza/get-your-flu-shot.html
Ask our pharmacy team about booking an appointment for your flu shot this fall.
Before you start a new prescription, or anytime you have a query, be sure to check in with our pharmacy team. Not sure what to ask? Here’s a great question: “How should I use this medication?”
Our pharmacist can review the best time of day to take the medication – and if it needs to be taken at the same time daily. They’ll confirm if it can cause drowsiness, which would prohibit you from driving your car while you’re taking it. The pharmacist will also let you know if it should be taken with or without food, and anything else of which you should be aware.

Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which may lead to an increased risk of fracture. This disease can have multiple causes, but exercise and nutrition play a role in keeping bones healthy.
Foods for healthy bones… Adequate calcium intake is necessary for maintaining bone health. Key sources of calcium include milk, fortified milk alternatives, and canned salmon.
Exercise for healthy bones… An active lifestyle helps protect your spine, builds muscle strength and balance, and slows the rate of bone loss. A combination of activities, including yoga, dance, walking and weight training, for example, will help to protect your bones.
Talk with our pharmacist for advice on whether you should be taking a calcium supplement, and other ways you can protect your bones
People with sensitivities to indoor allergens will struggle with scratchy throats and stuffy noses even more as the weather turns cool and we begin to spend more time inside.
Here’s what you need to know about the three most common indoor allergens:
• Pets Most people think it’s the fur, but it’s actually pet dander (which comes from the skin of the cat or dog), that causes a problem. Bathe pets often and keep them out of the bedroom and off furniture, to reduce your exposure.
• Dust The most common cause of indoor allergies is dust mites, the tiny creatures that live in dust. Keep their count down with frequent house cleaning, by using HEPA filters on your vacuum and furnace, and by washing sheets and blankets in hot water every week.
• Mold Any damp surfaces (think bathtubs, houseplants, and garbage pails) can harbour mold and mildew. Keep your home dry and well-ventilated by using dehumidifiers, vented exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom, and by using cleaning products designed to kill mold.
Ask our pharmacist to walk you through the over-the-counter remedies, like antihistamines and decongestant sprays, that can help soothe your indoor allergy symptoms.
