What You Should Know When Traveling With Pharmaceuticals

Summer months go hand-in-hand with vacations. That got me thinking … if roughly 48% of Americans are on at least one prescription drug at any given time, it’s safe to say a good number of those will be traveling this summer with pharmaceuticals. I’m sure most of those people know which medications require plan-ahead travel arrangements. Do you? From aspirin to insulin and EpiPens to inhalers, traveling with medication often requires special care. You’re permitted to bring

Are Expired Drugs Still Safe And Effective?

With a pounding headache you reach into your medicine cabinet for some aspirin and realize the expiration date on the bottle passed … quite a while ago. Do you take it?  Will it be a fatal mistake or will you simply continue to suffer? One of the questions I get asked the most by patients is: “Should they take expired medication or throw it out?” This information is very important for two reasons:  A.)

Migraines: Causes and Cures

Migraine headaches have been in the news a lot lately, and not just because it’s summer, kids are out of school and mothers from Weston to Pinecrest are collectively massaging a dull, throbbing pain at the temples. Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain, has been generating a lot of news coverage lately about this condition in the hopes of generating awareness and creating new research opportunities.

What is compounding? Why would I use it?

As you may know by now, VH Pharmacy specializes in pharmacy compounding. But what exactly does that mean? And more specifically, what does it mean for you? We’re glad you asked. Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of making personalized medications for patients. They’re made from scratch, meaning that individual ingredients and flavors are mixed together in the exact dosage and form required by you – that means no one-size-fits-all prescription strengths or dosage forms. Are you used to taking your medication in pill form but would prefer to have it in a cherry flavored liquid? We can do…
