A Renewed Goal Of Health
Have you ever wondered why the Stapley Pharmacy ads always end with the words “Your pharmacist is your most accessible medical provider”? The simple reason is that your pharmacist is always available to you. You usually don’t need an appointment to visit with your pharmacist. You also don’t need to obtain a pre-authorization or provide a co-payment to visit your pharmacist. Most recently graduated pharmacists have a PharmD degree, which is a doctor of pharmacy degree. They are trained in all things medicine, and they can answer all questions related to your well-being. A pharmacist can discuss the diseases for which you have been diagnosed and the symptoms you may be experiencing. More importantly, they can spend time answering your questions and concerns about your health.
Some of the most common questions pharmacists are asked concern:
- Diabetes: type 1 and type 2, insulin resistance
- Heart/Cardiac disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Pain management: addiction, basic pain relief, changing from one medicine to another
- Depression/Anxiety management: over-the-counter supplements, proper dosing, sexual side effects
- Expecting the unexpected during pregnancy: prenatal and postnatal care, medicine while nursing
- Immunization therapy, including travel inoculations
- Hormone management
- Compression stockings
- Exercise maintenance: minerals, electrolytes, and supplements
If you have been diagnosed with any of these diseases or are experiencing a health issue, make a stop at your favorite pharmacy before you dash off to your primary care physician. Pharmacists are available to assist you.
Your pharmacist really is your most accessible medical professional. Contact your favorite pharmacist or come in and see one of the pharmacists at Stapley Pharmacy. Let’s start the new year with a renewed goal of health.
