Controversial medicine to be prescribed varies depending on a person’s career path and even more so, depending on the pharmacy technician’s career path. A career in emergency medicine may call for you to treat patients with anesthesia or other forms of anesthesia, so you may be asked to refer out to anesthesiologists. Anesthetists will give you “pain killer” shots to sedate a patient, and you will administer anesthetic drops under local anesthetic to complete a surgical procedure.
A doctor of medicine may prescribe you a powerful medication for a serious illness or injury. For example, someone who has suffered from a heart attack may require this medication for immediate treatment. Someone with cerebral palsy will likely need this medication as well. If it is an exemption, you may be able to make the choice yourself. Many times, however, you are going to be required to take this medication, so you should know what you’re getting into beforehand.
As far as your career path in general goes, this one is relatively easy. You have a choice between a clinical or pharmacurgical career, depending on your degree and specific area of focus. There are many areas within the pharmacy that offer the best opportunities, so do some research and consider which one will be the most fulfilling and most successful for you in the long run.
This is a controversial topic because your livelihood may depend upon the decision of doctors and pharmacists. Some people might even consider it unsafe and unethical. However, if your doctor prescribes you certain medications, you must respect his or her wishes, even if you believe that the medicine is harmful or inappropriate for your health. Your career may depend upon it.
Many times, your medication will be changed due to peer pressure. You will be told to stop taking your prescribed medication for awhile in order to “catch up.” If you are on a more traditional medication schedule, sometimes this simply isn’t possible. On the other hand, you could be told not to take certain medications at all. Consider your options carefully.
It is important to remember that many of these situations are out of your control, especially if you are in a hospital or similar situation. Regardless, you must follow the instructions of your doctor or pharmacist, and you should never do something you don’t feel comfortable doing. Your only real option in such a situation is to follow the rules and regulations.
If you have a very defined set of goals for your career, you may be able to use a combination of traditional and alternative medication to achieve those goals. Many career paths can lead to an increase in job security, as more employers are looking for pharmacists and technicians who can fill various roles. This means that you may have more freedom in deciding which medications you will prescribe. However, if you do choose to change your career from traditional to alternative, you are likely to have more restrictions in terms of what medications you can prescribe. For example, you may need to wait a certain period of time before prescribing statins after a surgical procedure. Similarly, you may have to wait until the medication is approved by the FDA before you are allowed to prescribe it.
Controversy medications are not right for every person. Always talk to your doctor, and consider the benefits versus the risks. If you are still getting used to it, and your goals are clearly defined, you can change your medication to something you are more comfortable with. If you have any concerns, talk to your doctor about your concerns, and always follow the instructions that he gives you.
