If you are required to take a medication to combat a chronic condition, then you may know full well the issues that can arise from persistent prescription drug use. Many of the Providence County residents that we here at DeLuca and Weizenbaum LTD have worked with in the past have reported problems like forgetting to take their medications on a regular basis or suffering side effects such as tissue damage from repeated injections. Some might say that implantable drug delivery systems may be the answer to the challenges you may face in adhering to your medication schedule. However, these devices are not without their flaws.
Implantable drug delivery systems are devices put inside your body that are programmed to administer pre-determined amounts of medication at routine intervals. These devices are resupplied with medication through an access port, allowing for continuous use. IDDS devices may be used to treat any number of ailments, from diabetes and Parkinson’s disease to certain forms of cancer.
