Pharmacist Consultations

Here at Roslyn Pharmacy, we have two fully equipped consultation rooms to allow our customers complete privacy while discussing their health concerns with one of our Accredited Pharmacists. New Zealand Pharmacists who are accredited by the Pharmacy Council are now able to provide customers with over-the-counter solutions for a range of health issues that were previously only available with a doctor's prescription. This makes it easier for customers to access the solutions they need without having to visit a doctor.  There is no appointment required for a consultation with one of our Pharmacists, just come in and see us.


Pharmacist Supplied Sildenafil

Erectile dysfunction is common in men and can have many different causes.  Our Pharmacists are accredited to supply erectile dysfunction medication with sildenafil as its active ingredient. The medication is more commonly known under its brand names Viagra and Vedafil. Both are available in Aotearoa without a prescription.

Pharmacist supplied sildenafil is available to men between 35 and 70 years of age. During your consultation, our Pharmacist will need to measure your blood pressure and ask you about any medical conditions you may have and medication you are currently taking to ensure that sildenifal is safe for you. 


Quit Smoking with Nicotine Replacement Therapy

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a proven and effective way for New Zealanders to quit smoking. NRT involves using nicotine replacements such as patches, gums and lozenges to reduce cravings and help people cope with nicotine withdrawal. 

All NRT products in New Zealand are approved by Medsafe and are available on prescription or over-the-counter. NRT can be used to gradually reduce nicotine intakeand work towards quitting smoking for good.  After your consultation, our Pharmacists can provide you with a three month supply for just $5. 


UTI Treatment

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can cause a lot of discomfort, but with the right treatment and care, most people can effectively manage their UTI and get back to feeling healthy and comfortable. There is a range of treatments available, from antibiotics to lifestyle changes and natural remedies, so come in a chat to one of our accredited Pharmacists about the right treatment for you.

Treatments are available without a prescription for women aged 16 – 65 years, provided you're not pregnant and you do not have any other contraindications.


Vitamin B12 Injections

Our vaccinating Pharmacists are also able to administer Vitamin B12 injections. A Vitamin B12 injection helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue, and it can improve energy levels and cognitive function, while supporting healthy cell growth and development. You will need a doctor's prescription to receive a B12 injection.


Oral Contraceptive Pills

If you've been prescribed an oral contraceptive by a GP within the past three years, you can have your prescription renewed with a Pharmacist consultation, eliminating the need for a trip to the doctor. Please note that only certain oral contraceptives can be supplied by a pharmacist without a prescription from the GP, and other conditions may apply.


Emergency Contraceptive Pill

Pharmacist supplied Emergency Contraception is an effective option to consider if you have had unprotected sex and would like to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy. Emergency contraception is a safe and highly effective method to prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Our Pharmacists are trained to provide information and support regarding the medication, so that our customers can make an informed decision.



If you've been diagnosed with vaginal thrush in the past and are familiar with the symptoms, you can purchase antifungal treatment from a Pharmacist without needing a prescription. Its important to remember, however, that not all vaginal infections are caused by thrush. Our Pharmacists can discuss your symptoms and give you advice. Treatment options for thrush include antifungal creams, pessaries, and oral capsules. All of these treatments work by preventing the growth of the candida fungus that causes thrush, while leaving the beneficial bacteria naturally present in the vagina unaffected.



Conjunctivitis is a common eye condition that can be treated with eye drops prescribed by a pharmacist. Pharmacist supplied eye drops are an effective and convenient way to get relief from the symptoms of conjunctivitis, such as redness, itchiness, and discharge. We can provide adults and children aged 2 and over with the antibiotic Chloramphenicol in drop or ointment form.


Melatonin to Aid Sleep

Melatonin is a hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. It is released from the pineal gland in your brain when it is dark and helps make you feel sleepy. Melatonin also helps keep your body clock in sync, meaning that it helps you to fall asleep and wake up at the same time each day. As we age, our pineal gland becomes less efficient, and therefore, less melatonin is produced. This can lead to difficulty sleeping, or insomnia. It can also cause us to feel more tired during the day, and have reduced energy levels. If you are over the age of 55, and are experiencing trouble sleeping, come in and speak to one of our Acredited Pharmacist to see if melatonin can help you.
