Allergies and Asthma – Treating Both Together

Allergies and asthma are inextricably linked for many people, and the connection can make it more challenging to treat and prevent a flare up of symptoms. While allergies and asthma may seem like separate conditions, they actually present together in patients quite frequently because both conditions have many of the same triggers. These triggers, such as pollen, animal dander, etc. can result in symptoms of both conditions at the same time.

The Risks of Smoking While on Hormonal Birth Control

Patients that smoke while on hormonal birth control are at risk for developing serious health problems such as stroke, blood clots, or heart attack. While the connection between smoking, birth control, and serious health complications has been well documented, patients are hesitant to give up smoking while on the pill, the patch, the shot, or the ring. Studies show that 8 out of 10 women will continue smoking while on birth control even after being warned of the risks and adverse side effects that may be associated with combining the two.

What is a Compounding Pharmacy and How can it Benefit You?

A compounding pharmacy specializes in formulating customized treatments for each patient based on their specific needs. Since standardized medications may not provide the best formulation depending on the patient’s condition, compounding pharmacies give physicians the ability to prescribe a specific dosage and strength and to combine active ingredients to design the best treatment plan for each patient.
