Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver. Some of the symptoms of the condition include jaundice of the skin and the eyes, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. For acute types of hepatitis, the condition lasts for at most six months. If hepatitis lasts for more than that, it is considered chronic. Chronic hepatitis can eventually lead to liver failure or cancer.
Many people come to our health center pharmacy in St. Catharines, Ontario, and self-prescribe medication for hepatitis. However, this is not how it should be. People don’t usually know that there are a lot of different causes of hepatitis, and the medicine required for each condition is different from the other.
The most common causes of hepatitis are viruses – and most of them are not even related to each other! Among the types of viruses that cause hepatitis, only hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses respond to oral medicine. Keep this in mind before going to a pharmacy in Niagara, Canada. Also, the medication needed will require a prescription from your physician.
If you ever need antiviral drugs like those for hepatitis B or hepatitis C, bring your prescription to our retail pharmacy in Ontario, Canada. We at Niagara Health Centre Pharmacy will only provide you with fresh, authentic, and reasonably-priced medicine for your needs. If you want to know more, please contact us at 905-684-1181.
