Why Do Some Medications Come As Pills, And Others As Injections?

Katie Mui - November 22, 2017

Why do some medications come in tablets and others in capsules? Why are there ointments and creams? And why are some drugs delivered by injection or through an intravenous (IV) drip?   

Like a lot of things in medicine, the answer can get complicated, but it boils down to this: where a drug needs to be, how quickly it needs to get there, and how long it needs to hang around. After a major surgery, your doctor could prescribe a powerful painkiller by IV drip, which gets the drug circulating right away, and to pain receptors throughout your body. See More

Medications are a common offender when it comes to lower extremity edema, either as the cause or as a factor that can make it worse.

10 Medications That are Dangerous to Stop Abruptly

Dr. Sharon Orrange - December 21, 2016

“Can I just stop my medication?” This question, frequently asked of primary care doctors, has a complicated answer. For starters, if you are taking a medication that is controlling an ongoing medical problem like high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol you should never stop it on your own—or your problem will return. Many patients do come clean though, and report that they just plain stopped their meds. See More
