Antidepressant Medications Counselling

Due to the importance of antidepressant medications, an information service is provided by the pharmacy in order for you to get the most of your medications.

The service requires a 15 to 30 minute appointment within a private room in the pharmacy.  The topics the pharmacy will cover includes:

  • Why the medication is prescribed and the reason behind this.
  • How this medication works in the body.
  • How to take the medication.
  • Expected benefits and side effects.
  • Other things that you can do to help benefit you.
  • Information to take home.
  • When to see your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are currently on this medication/have had a change of medication, change your dose or just want to enquire, call the pharmacy to make an appointment to get this service.

In association with Northland Community Pharmacy Organisation, our professional team of pharmacists can give you “Self Help Strategies” on the important things you can do to help yourself get better.
