NOTICE DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
In order to improve the safety of the community, of our patients and of our staff during the Coronavirus pandemic, Avoca Street Medical Centre will need to implement some temporary changes to our general practice services. Telephone consults are available and preferred.

However, patients will be able to book a face to face consultation (provided they have no symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat or runny nose OR have had a NEGATIVE COVID TEST in the previous 5 days). Face to face consultations will be kept strictly within 10 minutes to stay under the duration outlined by the NSW Health definition of "close contacts".

ALL PATIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE MASKS WHILE IN OUR OFFICE

Please call us on (02) 9399 3335 for an appointment.
Patients with any symptoms are encouraged to directly attend the COVID Clinics for testing. Both open 7 days per week:

  1. Prince of Wales Hospital (Building 14B, Ground Floor, Avoca Street, Randwick)
  2. Sydney Children's Hospital - under 16 year olds (Hospital Road, High St End)

Patients who have tested negative but with ongoing symptoms will be able to attend our practice for assessment after advising staff.

Meanwhile, please heed current public health pandemic advice: stay inside your home, wash hands, observe physical distancing, regular exercise and maintain mental wellness.

    Harmful dietary supplements in pregnancy

    Vinpocetine, an ingredient found in some dietary supplements, may be associated with adverse reproductive effects, according to a safety communication from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    Results showed vinopocetine decreased fetal weight and increased the chance for miscarriage in pregnant animals. As the blood levels of vinpocetine measured in the animals were similar to those reported in individuals who consumed a single dose of vinpocetine, it can be inferred that the risks would apply to humans as well.

    Vinpocetine, a synthetically produced compound, is sometimes referred to as Vinca minor extract, lesser periwinkle extract, or common periwinkle extract; dietary supplements containing vinpocetine have been marketed for improving memory, focus, and energy, as well as for promoting weight loss.
