Advice on all Prescription and OTC medicines
Here at Leahys we provide each patient with advice on all prescribed medicines ensuring that the patient is fully informed about any special directions for use of the medicine as well as any common severe side effects, adverse reactions or interactions and therapeutic contra-indications that may be encountered, including their avoidance and the action required should they occur. This advice may be given in private depending on the nature of the medicine or if the patient prefers it – we have a private consultation room available at all times.

Heart disease – Ireland’s No.1 Killer
Approximately 10,000 people die each year from cardiovascular disease (CVD) – including coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke and other circulatory diseases. CVD is the most common cause of death in Ireland, accounting for 33% of all deaths. The largest number of these deaths relate to CHD – mainly heart attack – at 5,000. 13% of premature deaths (under age 65) are from CVD.

Smoking is the single biggest cause of ill-health and death in our society. Ireland’s 1 million smokers, their families and friends, and our health services all pay a huge price as a result of smoking. Worldwide, it is estimated that 5.5 million people die every year from tobacco related diseases.(source – www.quit.ie)

Advice and Dispensing of Fertility Medication
At Leahys Pharmacy we have developed an expertise in this area over the past few years. All our pharmacists are familiar with infertility medications and have undergone training in this area. We have a full range of fertility medications in stock that women may be prescribed when they are undergoing IUI (intra-uterine insemination) or IVF (in-vitro fertilization). All consultations for such medications take place in our specially designed private consultation room and we also give emergency contact information to these patients who may require out-of-hours services.
Advice on Breastfeeding and Baby Weaning
Whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle feed your baby, the advice available can sometimes be confusing depending on the source of such advice. Here at Leahys our pharmacists can offer mums (or dads) independent medical advice on bottle or breastfeeding or other common childhood ailments.
Measuring for Compression Stockings
Here at Leahys we provide a private measuring service for patients who require compression stockings due to varicose veins, legs ulcers, pregnancy, etc. We advise that you attend for an appointment as early as possible in the day so that the measurement may be taken before any swelling that may build up during the day occurs. All our compression stockings are ordered based on the individual’s measurements and in most cases are available to collect in-store within 48 hours.
