spring allergiesAmid predictions of a bumper Spring allergy season, Brisbane residents are being reminded they can get their allergy medication delivered to their door to avoid having to face pollen triggers.

Doctors have warned Brisbane’s recent dry weather has resulted in a high pollen count and have advised those prone to attack to stay indoors when possible this Spring.

The Tonic App allows users to have prescription medication and other pharmacy products delivered to Brisbane homes and offices at a time which suits them.

Co-founder Adam Gilmore said that meant those who suffer from pollen-related allergies don’t have to venture outdoors on days when the pollen count is high.

“Pollen allergies can affect every aspect of a sufferer’s life, including sleep, work, concentration, and performance,” Mr Gilmore said.

“The symptoms include watery eyes, coughing, a tight chest, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath and wheezing – and these can be really quite debilitating.

“Thankfully there are many medications available that can help ease these symptoms, including decongestants, antihistamines and nasal sprays – which are all available for delivery through the app.

“Doctors have warned more people could suffer from allergies this Spring because of the extended dry weather, and Tonic will be at the ready to deliver relief for those who need it.”

Tonic is available for deliveries across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
