Functional Pharmacy Program
Pharmacotherapy – or medical treatment with drugs – is one of the most common forms of treatment today, if not the most common. For most healthcare providers, drugs are an incredibly useful clinical tool; and for many patients, drugs are an effective treatment option. It’s no wonder! In some instances, drugs can cure disease; in other instances, a drug may alter the course of a disease making it more manageable. However, more often than not, drugs come with side-effects, and the benefits a drug provides becomes blurry. Instead of the miracle cure hoped for, the decision to start or continue drug treatment becomes more of a balance between risk versus benefit or pros versus cons. Complicating things even more are factors that vary from person to person. Comorbidities, concomitant medications, lifestyle, and most importantly patient preference all add to how a course of treatment with a drug will playout from person to person.
