Tonics

Description

Feeling low in energy, feeling tired or having a poor appetite are common complaints. In most cases, these things happen after an illness. These symptoms are not usually long lived, returning to normal will generally happen within a few weeks.

Our Advice
  • Do a little more exercise day by day. Walking or stretching are good starting points.
  • Eat more food that has good energy stores such as meats, vegetables, fruit, bread, potatoes and rice.
  • Eat less fat and sweet sugars such as cake and biscuits.
  • Make sure you get all the vitamins you need. It is best to get the vitamins from the food you eat. Our pharmacist can advise if you need to take a supplement.
  • Tell our pharmacist if you have any of the following symptoms: sleepiness in the day, a high thirst, going to the toilet often, blurred vision, weight loss that you cannot explain, very heavy periods, indigestion, a change in your bowel habits or in your stools, dizziness or severe pain.
  • If you are worried about your health and think you need a tonic, ask our pharmacist for advice.
