Not many people are excited to visit the dentist, and too many people skip the dentist altogether because of fear and anxiety. JJ’s Prescription Specialties can help ease worries about a dental visit with specially prepared prescriptions for anxiety and some of the discomforts associated with dental treatment. The JJ’s team regularly works closely with area dentists to develop medications for:

• Procedural anxiety
• Pain relief
• Dry socket treatments
• Fluoride treatments
• Gum disease
• Plaque removal
• Oral ulcers
• Canker sores
• Teeth whitening

Some patients may not respond well to standard medications, so Prescription Specialties can customize dosage forms for dental medications, such as:

• Topical medicated gels for patients who have trouble swallowing pills
• Topical anesthetics for painless dental injections
• Compounded dental medicines in the forms of liquids, pastes, lip balms and lollipops

An obvious challenge with dental-related medication is that some rinses, solutions and gels may have a less-than-great flavor. Prescription Specialties can help medicine taste better without changing its properties and performance. For example, a sour-tasting dental pain reliever can be flavored, or a topical oral anesthetic can be turned into a tasty lollipop for children.

We’ve all been there. You’re hoping for eight hours of shut-eye, but a racing mind, stress or insomnia makes it difficult to fall asleep. Sleep aids have evolved from herbal remedies and old wives’ tales to over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and prescriptions that promise a full night’s sleep. Unfortunately, the FDA doesn’t regular most of the OTC sleep aids at national pharmacy chains, and some can negatively affect other medications in your routine or make you groggy during the day. Prescription sleep medications for minor sleeplessness may cause unwanted sluggishness or eventual dependence, while sleep aid supplements offered by JJ’s Prescription Specialties only contain the highest quality ingredients and can offer a more natural way to achieve more regular sleep patterns. A one-on-one consultation may help determine what sleep aids you need. To fill out a consultation form online, visit

Psoriasis affects as many as 7.5 million Americans—approximately 2.2% of the population. It is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. Rather than take weeks for new skin cells to form, psoriasis causes them to grow in days, and they build up on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. While it is a chronic disease, psoriasis symptoms can be managed, and lifestyle measures such as moisturizing, quitting smoking and managing stress may help. Psoriasis isn’t a contagious disease, but anyone can develop it. Factors such as family history, stress, obesity and smoking habits can increase the chances of it appearing. Used alone, creams and ointments that you apply to your skin can effectively treat mild to moderate psoriasis. JJ’s Prescription Specialties offers a full line of prescription psoriasis biologic medications, including:

• Enbrel
• Humira
• Simponi
• Stelara

Additionally, regular use of moisturizers—while they won’t heal psoriasis—can help reduce itching, scaling and dryness. Light therapy can also help with symptoms, and the simplest and easiest form of light therapy is to just walk outside a few minutes a day. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunlight slows skin cell turnover and reduces scaling and inflammation.
