The painWISE Pharmacy Professional Service program is evidence based and will assist pain sufferers to make safe decisions on what types of alternative therapies are effective and which are not. Unfortunately not all non-drug alternatives or supplements are known to work and can be very expensive. Being supported by the PainWISE Pharmacy Professional Service program means that you will be able to make better informed decisions on your over-the-counter purchases. Always discuss it first with your GP or your PainWISE Pharmacist if you are considering a specific type of alternate therapy that you are unsure about. Alternative therapies that are purchased over-the-counter may interact with some of your prescribed medications and a PainWISE Pharmacist are adequately trained to be able to navigate you safely and effectively.
