Are you experiencing troublesome menopausal symptoms? If so, your local pharmacy may be able to help,with products, advice and support.
In the Spring 2021 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, Victoria Goldman, a health journalist and editor for over 25 years, explores what community pharmacies can offer menopausal women. Pharmacy products may help to ease a range of menopausal symptoms, including hot flushes/night sweats, sleep problems, vaginal dryness and bladder weakness.
“Community pharmacists are often overlooked as a source of menopause information and advice,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “Yet they are trained healthcare professionals, readily available on the high street, and you don’t need an appointment to see one.’
The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women, men and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, complementary practitioners, pharmacists, dietitians etc.
Other articles in the Spring 2021 issue of The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter include plant oestrogens (phytoestrogens), insomnia at the menopause, and vaginal dryness, as well as news, Ask the Experts Q&As and information about Norma Goldman’s webinars.
