When people come in to our office they are normally experiencing discomfort and are taking one form or another of pain medication. Many individuals take medications and are so accustomed to having them as part of their lives that they don't remember that they take them. It is just the daily ritual that has become a part of their lifestyle.
Just how does this affect the overall performance of the muscles and skeletal system of the body? Once the prescription enters the blood stream all entities that are associated with receiving blood are directly affected. The bones help make our blood, the muscles need the blood to perform and our movement is directly affected by both of these. Also, anytime a chemical is added to the body's system it affects how the brain functions because that is what the drug is attempting to do, alter the brain's function that is why we are taking the prescription.
It is not my place, or within the realm of my education or licensing, to advise on prescriptions. That is why we are asking Mary to come and speak to those who take prescription drugs so that many of their questions can be answered. The Pharmacist is the one who knows more about the prescription drugs that are available, even more so then the medical professionals who prescribed them. This is what their education is all about, understanding the chemicals and their interactions within our body.
I would personally recommend to all to take these classes on drug interaction to help understand the ramifications of the prescription world. I will be there for sure as I know it will help me help you. You must call 216-364-0152 to reserve your seat for Mary's lecture series. Mary's first of 3 lectures will be Thursday 4/26/2012 at 7:00p
Till next week -
Know there is a Reason to HOPE!
