When your gastrointestinal condition requires ongoing treatment through prescriptions, having a GI doctor manage and monitor your medications is a critical step for your wellness. Pharmacologic management ensures your prescriptions work together to keep you in good health.
Why Do I Need Pharmacological Management?
Pharmacological management is provided when a patient has a condition that requires medication or prescriptions as part, or all parts, of the necessary treatment. For many gastrointestinal disorders medications are necessary for relief of symptoms and pain management. Some of our patients will require long term use of these medications. By carefully managing this treatment we are able to:
- Monitor for adverse reactions
- Monitor for efficacy of treatment
- Monitor for harmful drug/supplement combinations
