Our patient care team and team of Pharmacists are here for our patient every step of the way.

Crohn's Disease / Ulcerative Colitis
Crohn’s disease is a type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It can affect any part of your gastrointestinal tract, or stomach. Symptoms are mainly diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain, and fever. Some patients may also develop a blocking of the bowel. The disease can be cause by a combination of things, like changes in the environment, or immune issues. Some people are born with the genetics that make it easier for them to get Crohn’s. Scientists have not identified the exact issues yet, but it is not believed to be an autoimmune disease where the body is attacking itself. There is no cure for Crohn’s disease. So there is no medication or surgery that will get rid of it. Medications can help calm symptoms and keep you more comfortable. It is also important to change your lifestyle. You should avoid foods that aggravate the disease because you will reduce the overall inflammation in your body. It is important to work with your doctor and pharmacist to get the correct routine of drugs to help manage your symptoms so that you are most comfortable.
Living with Crohn’s disease can rule your life. At DirectRx, we don’t believe it has to. You can begin to live a more normal life by using medications to control the flare-ups and suffering from the disease. We know the medications used to treat this disease are expensive and require special care and handling. To help you with this, our dedicated team can deliver your medications right to your door. We will handle your medications with care so they arrive in the condition they should. Our pharmacists can answer any questions and address any concerns that may come up from the medications, and help you avoid other medicines that can cause irritation. We also work with the insurance companies to handle some of the issues you may have trying to get your medications. We know that these medicines are usually the best way to help stop the symptoms that cause you so much pain in your day-to-day life.
Ulcerative Colitis or UC is another disease that is related to Crohn’s, but it only affects the colon instead of the entire stomach area, or gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms are alike, but will be different from patient to patient. Medicines may help ease the irritation from UC, but UC can also be treated with surgery and Crohn’s cannot. The doctor can remove the irritated portions of the colon. This will help ease some of the symptoms. However, the inflammation can come back and attack other parts of the colon. Patients can eventually have their entire colon removed if they go back for several surgeries. You should discuss treatment for UC with your doctor and pharmacist. It will help you live a healthier life.
HIV is a virus that is spread through blood-to-blood contact and unprotected sexual contact.
Once a person is infected, it attacks their immune system, and if not managed with medications, it can lead to AIDS. Early detection of the virus is key to reduce the likelihood of the virus progressing to AIDS. There is no cure for HIV at the current time, but there are medications available to keep the amount of virus low in the body and prevent the progression to AIDS. It is important that anyone diagnosed with HIV or AIDS work directly with their doctor and pharmacy to make sure they are prescribed the appropriate medications and that these medications arrive on time each month. This helps keep the number of treatment options from decreasing due to the development of resistance to the medications and maintains a patient’s health by preventing the virus from progressing to AIDS.

Hyponatremia means low sodium concentrations in the blood.
This can be caused by medications or changes in the body function. If it is a medication causing it, the medication can often be removed, and the sodium levels will return to normal levels. If it is caused by another change to the body, medication is often needed to help regulate the sodium levels. Symptoms of low sodium can include nausea, vomiting, headache, restlessness, irritability, weakness, spasms, cramps, fatigue, confusion or other mental status changes. The medications used to treat low sodium are often costly and involve many barriers to the patients actually obtaining them. DirectRx is here to help with these issues to ensure the patient receives the appropriate therapy. We work with the physicians’ offices and insurance companies closely to guarantee timely delivery of medications right to the patient’s door. Patients requiring this therapy are often quite ill, and we believe it is our job to take the burden of ensuring their medications get to them off of their shoulders, so they can focus on getting better.
Parkinson’s disease is a disorder that affects movement, commonly seen with body tremors, in the central nervous system. Approximately 60,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year.

At DirectRx, we are the middle ground between our patients and their providers to encourage medication adherence in our patients. Our team is here on the journey to provide timely and comprehensive care for our patients to, Get Better!
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease that attacks the protective lining of the nerves.
Once the protective lining is damaged it can cause both physical and mental disturbances. Every patient experiences different symptoms and severities of their symptoms. The disease can present in multiple ways but almost always progresses at some point after diagnosis. There is no cure for MS, but there are many medications that can help a patient manage symptoms, prevent episodes, help a patient recover more quickly from an episode, and slow the disease’s progression. Many patients also choose to participate in physical and occupational therapy to help manage their symptoms. Any and all treatment decisions should be discussed with the patient’s physician.
DirectRx is here to ensure that patients get the medication they need delivered to their doorstep on time each month. That includes working with the insurance company and prescribing physician to overcome any barriers that may arise. Our pharmacists are on call seven days a week to answer any questions patients may have about their medications.

Organ transplants are required when an organ fails or becomes damaged beyond what the body can naturally repair.
Many different organs can be transplanted, however, one thing is common with all of them: organ transplants require long term medication therapy to reduce the likelihood of organ rejection. It takes coordination between the pharmacy, physician and insurance company to ensure that patients are getting the right dose of medication at the right time to prevent the rejection of their newly transplanted organ. DirectRx is a seasoned veteran in the patient care team with transplant therapy. We believe that it is the pharmacy’s job to play a vital role in the healthcare team and to get the medication delivered to the patient each month when they need it. Our pharmacists are available seven days a week to answer any questions that a patient may have about their medications. We want our patients to focus on living their life to the fullest, not on how they will get their medications each month.
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that results from the skin cells building up too rapidly, leading to patches of red scaly areas.

Respiratory diseases are a common diagnosis in the U.S. and can cause a great amount of suffering.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder, or COPD, is a term used to cover multiple respiratory disorders such as non-reversible asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and certain forms of bronchiectasis. Patients with these disorders often suffer from chronic cough, wheezing, chest tightness and increasing breathlessness. If these conditions are left untreated, it leads to increased symptoms and worsening lung function. Medications are used to slow the progression of these conditions and help relieve some of the symptoms. DirectRx works with the physicians and insurance companies to ensure that medications make it to the patient’s door on time each month.

It most commonly affects the hands, elbows, feet, ankles and knees. Patients experience pain and stiffness that can interfere with their day-to-day activities, and these symptoms can get worse as the day goes on.

DirectRx is here to work with the physicians and insurance companies to ensure this happens, and to make sure the medications are delivered right to the patient’s door.
