You’d give up almost anything for a chance to beat your cancer. And many treatments will test your resolve to do just that. Hair loss is one of the sacrifices most-often associated with chemo and radiation. Here’s what you can expect.
Whether you are a new cancer patient or are more familiar with cancer treatments, it can be confusing with all the new products available. The ever-expanding selection of treatments, as well as their side effects and potential outcomes, can have anyone confused in spite of pre-existing knowledge. Since medications play such a crucial role in cancer treatment, it makes sense to have the help of a team of highly knowledgeable pharmacists willing to help you sort out the differences between medications, as well as to help you treat side-effects of your primary treatment.
The pharmacists at Array Pharmacy do much more than merely distribute prescriptions– they are genuinely knowledgeable about the side effects and interactions of a vast range of cancer treatments and will be able to assist in streamlining your treatment options to ensure your most successful pathway.
Cancer treatment doesn’t only revolve around medications used to treat cancer directly. Since chemotherapy can have many unpleasant side effects, it is essential to know which drugs are best for treating each of them. Some common side effects of cancer treatment can be nausea and vomiting, pain management, constipation and/or diarrhea, and anemia. It is crucial that your team of pharmacists is knowledgeable about the vast array of side effects, and which medications will help ease the sometimes severe side effects of chemotherapy.
At Array Pharmacy, your pharmacist becomes an essential part of the cancer treatment team. They are integrated into all aspects of cancer care, from chemotherapy dosage and preparation to educating patients about potential options and pathways going forward with medication.
Array Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Commision for Health Care (ACHC), which involves an impartial organization reviewing the provider’s methods to ensure the highest safety and quality compliance.
