Sometimes we or someone dear and close to us may have difficulty remembering the right time to take their medication. This becomes even more difficult when polypharmacy is involved requiring individuals to take many different medications.
At Star Pharmacy we can assist by packing your regular medicines into a special dosing device called a Dose Administration Aid (DAA).
Medicine-related hospital admissions remain a significant problem in Australia. It is estimated that up to 400,000 people are admitted to hospital each year in Australia as a result of medicine-related problems.
DAAs can assist you to clearly see when to take your medicines and quickly check that you have taken your medicines.
Our staff will manage your prescriptions and let you know when you need to see your doctor for new scripts.
Our pharmacists can provide you with a print out of all your medicines and the times and how they need to be taken for further assistance.
