Most acute illnesses and injuries resolve independently with rest and at-home measures of care. If you experience a more severe condition, like a chronic disease, prescription medication might be necessary. At Everyday Urgent Care, the team of expert urgent care providers regularly prescribes medication to people of all ages. Depending on your needs, they might recommend medications like antibiotics, pain medications, vitamin B12 injections, or antacids.

Medication is a drug that’s inhaled, injected, or swallowed to minimize symptoms caused by an acute or chronic illness. There are thousands of medications available. Some medicines you only take for a week or two, while others require long-term use.
At Everyday Urgent Care, the team treats most conditions with healthy lifestyle changes, like diet and exercise, but prescription medication might be necessary if your symptoms persist.
The team at Everyday Urgent Care regularly prescribes medication to people of all ages. Common medications include:
Antibiotics are a group of medications that combat bacterial infections. Your Everyday Urgent Care provider might prescribe antibiotics if you have Strep throat, bronchitis, or a urinary tract infection. We offer both oral and intramuscular antibiotics.
Pain medications are a group of drugs designed to relieve inflammation, stiffness, and other issues that affect your mobility. Opioids are the most common class of pain medications, but there are other, less addictive pain medications as well.
If you want to lose weight but can’t seem to achieve your goal with diet and exercise, your provider might recommend vitamin B12 injections. Vitamin B12 can speed up your metabolism and boost your energy levels, allowing you to go harder during workouts.
If you have a respiratory condition like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or cystic fibrosis, the team at Everyday Urgent Care might recommend nebulizer treatment. A nebulizer is a medical device that converts medication into a mist, allowing you to inhale it into your lungs and maximize its benefits.
If you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or another condition characterized by chronic heartburn, your provider might prescribe antacids. There are several types of antacids. Some neutralize the acid your stomach produces, while others prevent your stomach from releasing too much acid.
Anti-nausea medicines reduce the bothersome symptom of being sick to your stomach. These medicines lower your risk of throwing up and dramatically improve the way you feel.
Immunizations teach your immune system to identify harmful pathogens like viruses and bacteria. The team at Everyday Urgent Care regularly administers vaccines to adults. After a review of your medical records, they can update your immunizations as necessary.
The type of medications that will most benefit you depend on several factors, including your age, health history, and the symptoms you’re experiencing. After an exam and a discussion of your symptoms, the team at Everyday Urgent Care can make recommendations for treatment.
