Apotheca Integrative Pharmacy's Health and Wellness Space Launch

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

     Health is wealth, a phrase that we always hear from our family, friends, relatives, co-workers, and neighbors whenever they sense that we are showing signs of tiredness, weakness, and starting to get sick because of work and unhealthy lifestyle. We always resort to medications like over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, and medicines prescribed by our doctor.

     There are times that taking these oral supplements and prescription medicine may bring harm to use if we don't know the exact dosage that our body needs. We have different body types, and not all prescribed medicines that we take will give the same effect if for example we break a tablet of paracetamol because we only need a small dose and it's not available in the nearest pharmacy. Enter, Apotheca Integrative Pharmacy. More details why you should consider compounded medicines in order for you or your loved ones to easily comply on maintenance medicines and other health and wellness products below!

     Apotheca is the pioneering specialty compounding pharmacy here in the Philippines. They formally launched their Makati wellness space that offers a wide variety of products that promote wholesome wellness, over-all health and local goodness.

     I presume that you are intrigued about the word Apotheca. During the event, Richard Lista president of Apotheca discussed the basics of compounded medicines and what Apotheca has to offers for patients who have problems on taking the right dose of medications.

     So what is Apotheca? What are the products and services they are offering? According to Mr. Lista, Apotheca is a Latin word which means someone who prepares and sells compounded medicines. Apothecary on the other hand is old term for pharmacy.

     Thank you so much Apotheca for having me. I learned a lot on compounded medicine and now I have an idea on what to consider for my father who takes maintenance medicine. Aside from this, I also suffer from different body pains and I may resort to compounding my over-the-counter oral pain medicines to topical gels at Apotheca so that I'll also prevent myself of ingesting paracetamols and NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil) that will have side effects inside my body in long-term use.
