Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) or Human RSV is characterized by breathing difficulties, high fever and lips/nail beds turning blue once exposed to the virus. This manifests in about four to six days from exposure and can show up in symptoms like:
- Runny Nose
- Dry Cough
- Sore Throat
Eventually, the symptoms can develop into pneumonia or bronchitis when left untreated.
At Tower Chemists, our pharmacists know about most symptoms that patients undergo upon being diagnosed with RSV. We focus on innovative approaches in pharmacy where patients can access indispensable guidance to manage their illness.
Specialty medication used to treat RSV essentially involves particular instructions or directions from the pharmacist to ensure proper intake or administration by the patient. The manner of medication intake and the schedule of intake are sometimes difficult for the patient to comply on his or her own as the therapy will comprise the periodic medication therapy reviews, drug interaction reviews, and intermittent pharmacist consultations.
In line with this, medicines for RSV are expensive. Because of the price, Tower Chemists will always be available to assist by coordinating with insurance companies for prior authorizations and help in accessing community-based support to reduce the costs.
We are inviting patients who have been diagnosed with RSV to contact us and take comfort in knowing you can access our responsive pharmacy services with ease. You can reach our friendly staff at 212-628-1900 or ask for help with Drug Interaction Reviews by the Pharmacist.
