Specialty infusion therapy refers to the administration of specialized medications or treatments directly into the bloodstream through infusion. This type of therapy is often used to treat complex medical conditions that require close monitoring, such as autoimmune disorders, cancer, chronic pain, or infectious diseases.
Specialty pharmacies, like ours, play a crucial role in providing these therapies. We are equipped to handle and dispense complex medications that sometimes require special storage, handling or administration techniques. We work closely with your team of healthcare providers, insurance companies, and YOU to coordinate delivery and the administration of specialty medications.
There are many conditions/disorders that can benefit from specialty injectables. Some examples of conditions that commonly benefit from specialty injectables include:
This list just scratches the surface of what conditions specialty injectables can benefit. We’d be happy to help you with your specialty injectable needs.
The frequency of therapy is dependent on the medication, the condition it’s being used for, and the treatment plan, prescribed by the patient’s healthcare provider. Some injectables may be given daily, some weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, every few months and possibly even annually.
Your healthcare team, along with our home infusion pharmacy will work closely with you to come up with a plan that works for everyone involved.
Specialty injectables can be administered through different routes of administration, depending on the medication, the condition it’s being used for and the desired therapeutic effect.
It’s important to note that the administration of specialty injectables should always be performed by trained healthcare professionals or individuals who have received appropriate training and education. Self-administration of certain medications may be possible under the guidance of healthcare providers, with proper instructions and support provided.
Just like any medication, specialty injectables come with their list of potential side effects. Side effects differ, depending on medication administered, and it is important to let your healthcare provider and infusion pharmacy team know of any side effects experienced during your therapy.
Some side effects may include:
This list is not exhaustive. If you experience anything out of the ordinary during your therapy, alert your medical team appropriately.
