Antibiotics - Injectable Antibiotics remain one of the most widely used medicines administered by Physicians in the world today. Introduced in the 1930's, antibiotics have greatly reduced the mortality rates in patients presenting with a wide variety of infections. Since then, many other antibiotics have been introduced that have greatly increased our ability to fight infections. Some of these injectable antibiotics include a better Penicillin (Bicillin), Aminoglycosides (Gentamicin), Cephalosporins (Cefazolin/Ancef, Ceftriaxone/Rocephin) and Lincomycin (Lincocin). Broad Spectrum antibiotics are typically used to treat conditions in the absence of completed laboratory data, but best practice is to "match the drug with the bug" for the most effective results.

Anesthetics - Medical Practitioners from a variety of specialties have used local and regional anesthetics since 1948 for medical and surgical procedures because of their ability to reduce risks and the dangerous side effects associated with general anesthetics. Usually, the onset of local anesthesia is rapid but the duration of its action is short, which would require repeated administration in some procedures. Some of the most commonly used anesthetics in Physician offices and surgery centers today are Xylocaine (Lidocaine) and Marcaine (Bupivacaine). Other products available from Vita-Rx Medical used to promote local anesthesia are Carbocaine and Naropin (Ropivacaine).

Antiarrhythmics - Cardiologists, Internal Medicine and Family Practice Physicians often use injectable antiarrhythmics in the treatment of both supraventricular dysrhythmias and ventricular dysrhythmias; both which are the result of irregular electrical activity in the heart. Some of the injectable antiarrhythmic drugs available are Beta Blockers, Calcium Channel Blockers, Potassium Channel Blockers, Sodium Channel Blockers and those with Variable Mechanisms such as Digoxin® and Adenosine®. Each of these medications is used to treat unique presentations and gravities of dysrhythmias and is administered according to their general effectiveness for each patient.

Antiemetics and Antihistamines, Single & Multi-Dose - Family Practice Doctors, Primary Care Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, and Anesthesiologists are among the many Medical Practitioners who administer antiemetic injections for the treatment of nausea, vomiting, and vertigo in both acute and chronic presentations. An injectable antiemetic is often the preferred route of administration, bypassing the GI tract for a quicker onset. Some commonly administered antiemetics are Promethazine (Phenergan), Ranitidine (Zantac), and Ondansetron (Zofran). Certain antihistamines, such as Diphenhydramine (Dramamine), are also used to treat these same symptoms related to inner ear irregularities or motion sickness.

Chronic Pain Treatment, Single & Multi-Dose - Many different physicians of all specialties frequently administer injectable analgesics when treating patients who present with pain that has been chronic or reoccurring over weeks, months, or even years. Arthritis, cancer, and back injuries are the most common causes of pain in patients worldwide. Other causes stem from neuropathic or neurogenic pain and yet some patients present with pain that have no known origin. Analgesics, which are the initial treatment of choice by most physicians, typically work on blocking pain by either disrupting the neural impulse or thru cognitive alterations. Vita-Rx Medical offers several non-scheduled acute and chronic pain injectable medications including Ketorolac, Hyalgan®, Methotrexate, Synvisc®, and Duraclon®. These medications are available in single or multi-dose vials.

Diluents - Medical Practitioners of many different specialties use Diluents in the preparation and administration of certain medications. Most diluents do not contain any pharmacological action but are necessary for reconstituting drugs, cleaning wounds, or to flush catheter lines. Commonly used solvents used in diluting solutions include, but are not limited to, Sterile Water, Bacteriostatic Water, Bacteriostatic Sodium Chloride 0.9% and Sodium Chloride 0.9%.

Epinephrine - Family Practice Physicians, Pediatricians, ER physicians are among the many Medical Practitioners that administer injectable Epinephrine (adrenaline) for the treatment of severe allergic reactions, asthma attacks, shock, and cardiac arrest. When administered parenterally, Epinephrine acts as a bronchodilator and vasopressor and has a rapid onset and short duration. Epinephrine is available in ampules, single dose and multi-dose vials, and in auto-injector devices.

Vaccines - Family Practice, Primary Care, Internal Medicine Physicians, Pediatricians, Rheumatologists, Pulmonologists, and Obstetricians are among the many Medical Practitioners that administer a variety of immunizations to protect the general population against infectious diseases. Vaccine administration is a cost effective, safe, convenient, and an effective way to reduce preventable diseases. Some of the diseases for which vaccines are available are Influenza (flu), Pneumococcal (pneumonia), Shingles, Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, Hepatitis A and B, mumps, measles, and meningococcal.
