Conway’s is your partner in healthcare. We offer a variety of health services that can save you a trip to the doctor, and that can help you manage your health more effectively. Here is an overview of some of the services we offer:
Compliance aids help you remember if and when you have taken your medication. They come in various forms and some can even indicate the time and day you should be taking your medication.
Conway’s pharmacists can administer the annual flu vaccine to anyone five years of age and older in the Universal Influenza Immunization Program.

If you are taking three or more chronic medications, have diabetes, are a resident at a long-term care home, or are physically unable to get in for a visit to the pharmacy, Conway’s suggests a MedsCheck appointment – free to those with a valid OHIP card – to review your prescription and non-prescription medications in detail.

If your medications are not commercially available in the dose or form they were prescribed, Conway’s can create the medication in a form or dose for you. This creation of the medication is called compounding.
Smoking Cessation Support
In addition to recommending over-the-counter medications to help you quit smoking, your Conway’s pharmacist can prescribe certain medications for smoking cessation. Click here for our page about smoking cessation programs and products.
Here is some more information about how your Conway’s pharmacist can assist you with a smoking cessation program.
To help you learn about specific health conditions such as heart disease or diabetes, Conway’s holds specialized clinic days that focus on education or risk assessment. Check with our website to see what clinic days are upcoming.
If you are unable to pick up your prescription, Conway’s is pleased to offer delivery. Speak to us about your delivery needs.
Renewing a Prescription
If you are taking medication for a chronic condition and you cannot get in to see your physician for a refill, you can ask your pharmacist to renew your prescription. This service does not replace the need to see your physician for regular check-ups and prescription renewals, but is available in case of need. The maximum length of time that your pharmacist may renew your prescription is for six months or for the length of the original prescription, whichever is less.
Note: Prescription renewal does not apply to narcotics or select drug classifications.
Adapting a Prescription
If appropriate, your Conway’s pharmacist may choose to change the dose, dosage form, frequency, or route of administration of your prescription to better meet your healthcare needs. Any changes made would be done with your consent, documented, and shared with your doctor.
Your Conway’s pharmacist can provide a range of advice and education about prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, natural health products, medical devices, and more.
