Bernadette is a 65-year-old overweight woman who enjoys mid-week tennis. She presents in the pharmacy with a request for something to help her knee pain. It is always worse after tennis. Bernadette also goes to the local gym for weekly active movers classes. She has tried paracetamol, rubs and fish oil but they do not help. Her other medicines are vitamin D 1000 IU daily and denosumab injections every 6 months for osteoporosis. She occasionally uses over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine for indigestion. She is otherwise healthy and has no known allergies.
