I am Darren Searle, the sports pharmacist. My aim is to integrate my knowledge of all things pharmacy with my love for sport, to help people gain a better understanding of what’s happening with their health and health conditions; and how any medications they might take can impact their sports.
With 15 years experience as a qualified pharmacist, I have spent my career working in dispensaries of retail pharmacies across Adelaide. This has allowed me to cement the medication knowledge I learned at university, as well as gain vital real world experience dealing with every day health related problems faced by my customers.
Outside of my daily duties as a pharmacist, I am an avid racing cyclist. Beginning my cycling endeavours as more of an irregular recreational activity, my passion steadily grew and I started my racing career at the age of 31. I now train most days of the week, with a focus on road races and, in particular, time trials.
With a strong interest in pharmacy and a passion for cycling, I am keen to share the details of what ticks through my mind with others!
