Do I need to see a pharmacist?

Your TerryWhite Chemmart pharmacist can provide you with important information about how to properly manage your asthma. We’re able to provide you with:

  • Inhaler technique checks to help you get the most out of your medication (click to view the inhaler technique video from Asthma Australia)
  • Spacers to help improve how much medication reaches the lungs
  • Your Asthma Control Score Check so you can check your asthma progress
  • Medication management assistance, such as keeping your prescription on file or sending SMS reminders when you’re due for a repeat

If you’re looking for professional advice and guidance regarding any of the above points, we suggest you see your local TerryWhite Chemmart pharmacist.

Although at present there is no cure for asthma, with good management, the right treatment and an active commitment to control their own symptoms, people with asthma can lead a healthy life.
