1. Dr. Mona Vand "The Modern Pharmacist"


    from Karbonshark Added

    Dr. Mona Vand has spent her entire career helping patients achieve optimal wellness. Attending the prestigious Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Dr. Vand graduated as a Doctor of Pharmacy in only six years. Upon graduation, she chose to relocate back to the west coast, where she's excelled as a Clinical compounding Pharmacist, tailoring medical treatment to the specific needs of her patients on an individual level. In an era where prescription drugs continue to play an ever-increasing role in the treatment of millions, Dr. Vand's goal is to keep patients informed about the overall benefits -and the potential risk factors - of pharmaceutical products. By expanding the conversation of patient health and traditional medicine, Dr. Vand is helping individuals learn the importance of patient care, food consumption, and making healthier lifestyle choices. While traditional science may consider medication as the first line of defense in the clinical treatment of patients, the modern world requires a pharmacist who can help patients understand that medication is truly only the beginning. Dr. Vand’s mission is to teach her patients that medication; diet, exercise and lifestyle are all equally important factors in the daily fight to live well. Dr. Mona Vand is your resource guide to a contemporary pharmaceutical world, creating a movement called, 'The Modern Pharmacist.’ Her goal is to help educate and empower a new generation of health conscious patients, while still catering to existing generations who often have questions about the medication they take. By creating one forum for pharmaceutical advice, 'The Modern Pharmacist' movement will help patients understand the connection between pharmaceutical science and overall wellness. - See more at: http://www.drmonavand.com

    • Pet Medications: Compounding


      from Karbonshark Added

      Many people consider pets part of the family. From eating “people” food to sleeping in our beds, we share our lives with them! When it comes to their medical care, attention to detail is a must. For this reason, compounding pharmacies are very beneficial and play a huge role when it comes to treating animals. Compounding pharmacies prepare specific, individualized medication to the needs of each patient. This could be in the form of dosage, strength, or flavoring. As much as it is individualized for patients, it is individualized for animals. Specific advantages of compounding medications for animals include: Ensuring the medication is SAFE for your pet While some human medications are safe and effective for animals, others can be very toxic. The physiology of humans and animals differ in many ways (organ function, gene strains, metabolism, etc.), and this effects how certain medication is tolerated. Lets consider antihistamines. Benadryl (generic: Diphenhydramine) is very safe for animals. It can be used to treat allergies, bites, or any other form of itchiness/irritation. However, many antihistamines are in combination products and include ingredients that may not be safe for animals. Decongestants are extremely unsafe and lethal for animals. They simply do not tolerate them, and they can cause vomiting, hyperactivity, and increased heart rate. What makes this even more of a risk is that the packaging can often be confusing. Both products have similar color and are labeled “Benadryl.” Flavoring Most people know how difficult it can be to get your pet to take medication. Compounding gives the advantage of flavoring the medication to the animal’s liking. For example: dog medications often have chicken or beef flavoring, while cat medication has fish flavoring. The amount of flavor added is specifically calculated based on the dose your pet needs. This ensures that each dose given still includes the correct amount of medication along with the correct amount of flavoring. Convenience When a pet rejects taking a medication in pill form, compounding may help. This may include mixing two drugs into the same solution for easier administration and can be done by crushing a tablet into an oral paste or creating a topical solution. Compounded medications are simply modified versions of FDA-approved medications and can be customized to the needs of your pet.
