Why Is Compounding So Useful?

Compounding is essentially described as the process of creating a custom-made medication tailored for the specific preferences of a person. This process is highly useful because many may have hindrances to their medication intake.

They may not like the flavor of their medications, or they may be allergic to them. Some may also find it hard to medication of certain sizes. Through compounding, these concerns can be addressed with ease.

The Value of Vaccines

- Allergy medications (Antihistamines)

- Antidepressants

Caring for Minor Wounds

The first thing to do is wash and disinfect the wound to remove all dirt and debris. When wrapping the wound, always use a clean dressing or bandage. If there is bruising or swelling, you can apply ice to the area.


Allergy Medication

Data shows that allergies are one of the leading causes of chronic illness in the US. Over-the-counter medicines are available to combat the symptoms of allergies. As a reminder, we are all advised to read and follow the directions provided in the packaging of the over-the-counter allergy medication.

You can also ask our pharmacist at Utica Express Pharmacy for instructions on how to properly take the medicine. They can also answer other questions about your medication.

Safe Use of Pain Medicine

Misuse of pain relief medication can cause addiction, overdose, and even death. This is why we must practice the safe use of this kind of medication. For instance, drug experts advise to not take opioids with alcohol, antihistamines, barbiturates, or benzodiazepines. The latter substances slow breathing and their combined effects with the opioid pain medication could lead to life-threatening respiratory depression. You can learn more about this at www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/guide-safe-use-pain-medicine.


Immunization Awareness Month

The COVID-19 pandemic reminded us of the importance of immunization. This August, let us learn more about the benefits of vaccines and how being vaccinated protects us, our families, and our communities from preventable diseases.

Multivitamins for Seniors

Taking multivitamins is one way to ensure that our senior loved ones are still getting the nutrients their bodies need. According to pharmacists, a senior’s multivitamins should contain higher levels of vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, and other needed nutrients.
