Medication Abortion

A prescription is required for all medication abortion orders. For information about accessing a medication abortion, contact our team here.

A medication abortion typically starts with a combination of two drugs, both of which require an Rx:

  • Taken first, mifepristone blocks the hormone progesterone, which causes the lining of the uterus to break down.
  • Then, misoprostol is taken, which causes the uterus to contract and empty.

Anxiety

Anxiety is an emotion that occurs as a normal part of everyday life in response to stress. However, anxiety conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and separation anxiety disorder are medical conditions that require treatment. They usually involve more extreme or longer bouts of anxiety that interfere with your life.

It is not fully understood what exactly causes anxiety disorders. Trauma, family history, and certain medical conditions all seem to play a role.

Depression

Depression is a medical condition that affects your mood, resulting in persistent feelings of sadness, disinterest, and apathy. It can lead to serious complications, including difficulty living everyday life and even suicidal thinking. There is no known cause, but doctors have identified a variety of factors that are linked with depression, including biological differences, hormones, certain life experiences, and family history.

There are three important neurotransmitters involved in understanding the chemistry of depression:

  1. Serotonin: regulates mood, appetite, sleep, social behavior, memory, and sexual desire.
  2. Dopamine: important for pleasure and reward, decision-making, motivation, and arousal.
  3. Norepinephrine: regulates blood pressure and heart rate in response to stress and affects alertness and motor function.

Prescription drugs often target one or more of these neurotransmitters and allow for them to hang around longer so you feel their positive effects.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a medical condition where your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of your throat. An underactive thyroid can disrupt other important bodily functions, such as your heart rate, body temperature, and metabolism. The thyroid gland produces two main hormones called T4 (thyroxine) and T3 (triiodothyronine). When released by the thyroid gland, T4 is mostly converted to T3, the main hormone responsible for biological effects seen in people.

Pain

Pain is a broad symptom that can manifest differently in every person. It can be isolated in a single area or spread throughout the whole body, and it is often categorized as either acute or chronic. Acute pain typically refers to a mild to sharp pain that can last from a few seconds up to a few months. Chronic pain typically refers to persistent pain that lasts from a few weeks to years.

There are four widely accepted types of pain:

  1. Functional Pain: Pain that doesn’t come from an obvious origin such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or fibromyalgia.
  2. Neuropathic Pain: Pain that comes from nerve damage or irritation such as neuralgia or neuropathy. This pain can also come from damage to or dysfunction of the brain or spinal cord or other nerves.
    1. Pressure on a nerve: This can come from a ruptured or bulging disk in the spine that subsequently causes back pain that then radiates to the leg.
    2. Nerve damage: This occurs often in people who have type 2 diabetes or the pain one experiences after shingles.
  3. Nociceptive Pain: Pain that comes from tissue damage or injury such as back pain, pain following a surgical procedure, or arthritis. This is also called acute pain.
  4. Inflammatory Pain: Pain caused by inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout. This pain is often a response from your body’s immune system.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a medical condition where your body struggles to process sugar, either due to a lack of insulin or a resistance to it. Insulin is an essential hormone that helps your cells utilize sugar as a source of fuel. With type 2 diabetes, the body’s difficulty with insulin leads to high blood sugar levels, which causes other serious conditions such as heart disease, vision loss, and kidney disease.

Medical professionals and scientists don’t yet understand the exact cause of type 2 diabetes, although they believe genetics, environmental factors, lack of exercise, and being overweight can all contribute.

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) is a common condition where your blood flows with too much force through your arteries. This occurs when your heart pumps a lot of blood, but your arteries are narrow, thus leading to an increase in pressure. When left untreated, hypertension can then lead to other health problems like heart attack and stroke.

Anyone who takes opioids is at risk for developing addiction due to the habit-forming nature of the drugs.
