Prescription Medications for Injured Workers in Dallas
Pain can be the most debilitating aspect of an injury, acting as a consistent reminder of your injury each time you move around or even stand up. For many workers who have suffered injuries, pain is also a constant reminder that they are not fit enough to work. Even the smallest and simplest movements and motions can become impossible when you’re in pain, and until that pain subsides, you’re stuck worrying about every aspect of your livelihood. Healing your pain can become the main focus of your entire life.

Determining the Right Medication for You
Depending on the kind of injury you’ve sustained, you might require a variety of different prescription medications, or no prescription medications at all. That’s why our prescription medication treatments always start with a proper diagnosis of your injury.
Not only will we determine the best treatments based on your injury, but we will determine exactly what treatments we should avoid based on your medical history. Prescription medications can be a great tool for treating injuries, especially for serious pain problems, but knowing the risks involved with certain prescription medicines can be the difference between life and death for patients.
Our clinic’s doctor and staff are well versed in diagnosing injuries and have a great deal of experience in providing the correct treatment to get you on the path to a successful recovery. Whether with prescription medication or other types of treatments, you can be certain that we will take care of you as best as possible. We’re committed to your recovery, regardless of which treatment is best for you.
The Right Medicine, The Right Dosage, The Right Duration
Effective prescription medication treatment is reliant on three things: having the right medication, taking the right dosage, and taking the medication for the right duration of time. Of course, having the right medication is the most important of the three. You wouldn’t treat something that required antibiotics with pain medicine. Our doctor and staff have the experience necessary to ensure that you’re receiving the correct medication for your injury.
Knowing the correct dosage of your medication is also imperative in treating injuries with prescription medication. If a doctor prescribes too low of a dose, the medication won’t have the desired effect on a patient. If a doctor prescribes too high of a dose, however, the patient may suffer from adverse effects, sometimes even resulting in death.
Similarly, taking medication for the right amount of time is essential to a successful use of prescription medication. Sometimes a doctor can provide a high dose for a short period of time, or a low dose for a longer period, but if they don’t adequately distribute the medicine, it won’t be effective.
While doctors are the ones responsible for providing a proper prescription, patients should also do their part. Providing a detailed and accurate medical history to a doctor will help your chances of a complete recovery from your injury, and also lower the risk of a doctor prescribing medicine that might have negative effects on your body.
