What is a minor ailment?

Minor ailment is a self-limiting condition that can be assessed by your pharmacist. We can help you explore and guide you to the best treatment option that can be provided to you right at your pharmacy, conveniently located in your communities. A minor ailment assessment includes a list of your medical conditions, a list of the medications that you take, and any red flags that will require referral to your physician. Speak to a local Shopper Drug Mart pharmacy, without an appointment, for a private consultation for any minor ailment concerns that you have.

Whether you have questions about your prescription medications, over-the-counter products, immunizations, or other health concerns, our pharmacists are here to help.
