Hospice services begin with a plan of care that the patient, along with his or her family, develops in concert with their healthcare team. During hospice care, JJ’s Prescription Specialties works with a patient’s healthcare team to make end-of-life care during this difficult time as gentle and comfortable as possible for the patient as well as for the family. This is achieved through a combination of medical and pain-management services and emotional support provided by members of the interdisciplinary team, either in the person’s home or in a long-term care facility, nursing home, or inpatient facility. During this time, different patients experience different symptoms, such as:
The JJ’s team partners with physicians to develop the best symptom control possible for the patient. For many patients whose priority is pain management and relief, JJ’s Prescription Specialties can provide specialized medications for patients with acute or chronic pain. Customized drug combinations can be prepared to allow patients to live more comfortably while potentially minimizing sedation or other side effects and keeping the number of administered medications to a minimum. To make medications easier to administer, JJ’s Prescription Specialties can create topical medications, flavored lozenges or rapid dissolve tablets, suppositories, oral liquids or even lollipops.

Most Americans take at least one dietary supplement either every day or occasionally, and this can include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, and enzymes. You can find dietary supplements in many forms, such as tables, capsules, powders and even drinks and energy bars, and when it comes to supplements, each person has individualized needs that aren’t always met by popular grocery store one-a-day packs.

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break from a fall or, in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps. Osteoporosis means “porous bone.” Viewed under a microscope, healthy bone looks like a honeycomb. When osteoporosis occurs, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are much larger than in healthy bone. Osteoporotic bones have lost density or mass and contain abnormal tissue structure. As bones become less dense, they weaken and are more likely to break. If you’re 50 or older and have broken a bone, ask your doctor or healthcare provider about a bone density test. The form of osteoporosis most common in women after menopause is referred to as Primary Type 1 or Postmenopausal Osteoporosis. Primary Type 2 Osteoporosis or Senile Osteoporosis occurs after age 75 and is seen in both females and males at a ratio of 2:1. Secondary osteoporosis may arise at any age and affect men and women equally. This form results from chronic predisposing medical problems or disease, or prolonged use of medications. At Prescription Specialties, our team of medical professionals help patients manage their disease to live active, productive and fulfilling lives. We can
fill your prescriptions that can help treat osteoporosis, including:
