Biologics are a class of drugs that are produced using a living system, such as a microorganism, plant cell, or animal cell, and a physician may prescribe them to target specific chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and a broad range of conditions requiring therapy.

Specialty medications encompass any prescriptions used to treat complex conditions and often require skilled professionals to administer them. ContinuumRx works with physicians to determine the best setting and plan for a patient to receive their therapy and acts as a partner through the infusion process to grant both the patient and their medical team peace of mind.

Getting Started with Biologic Therapies

Why do I need biologic therapies?

There are many reasons why a patient may require biologic therapy, but typically, these types of drugs can ease inflammation for inflammatory conditions, thus relieving pain for patients.

How long does biologic therapy take?

The timing will differ per patient and medication type, but some patients can see the effects of the drugs in as little as 2-4 weeks and may feel considerable relief in 3-6 months.

Why do I need specialty medications?

If the medication you require is not typically provided at a retail pharmacy, it falls under specialty medications, a term encompassing a range of drugs for complex conditions. Some examples of conditions that may require specialty medications are HIV/AIDS, complex neurological conditions, genetic disorders, and rare conditions.
