Crohn’s Disease

Aurora pharmacists can help people living with Crohn’s manage and control symptoms through specialty medication therapy. Each treatment is highly individualized and depends on the severity of the disease and complications. Although there is no cure for Crohn’s disease, we will work with you and your care team to find the best possible treatment. Specialty medications will help you:

  • Control inflammation
  • Correct nutritional deficiencies
  • Relieve abdominal pain, diarrhea and rectal bleeding

Hepatitis C

We help people successfully eliminate the hepatitis C virus using certain antiviral medications. Aurora pharmacists work closely with your doctor to determine which medications are necessary. Because treatment often involves taking a combination of medications, we coordinate with your care team to make sure you stay safe from any possible drug interactions.

Medical treatment for hepatitis C is often successful. With proper specialty medications, the virus may become undetectable in the blood.

High Cholesterol

We regularly treat people with high cholesterol, using cutting-edge medications called PCSK9 inhibitors to reduce “bad” cholesterol levels. These specialty medications are especially helpful for people who can’t take statin drugs or whose cholesterol isn’t controlled by statins alone. Unlike statins, which are taken by mouth, PCSK9 inhibitors are injected. These drugs can reduce cholesterol by 50% or more.

HIV

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a condition that can lead to AIDS if untreated. Aurora Specialty Pharmacy regularly treats people with HIV using antiretroviral therapy (ART). If taken properly every day, it can dramatically prolong the lives of people with HIV. Our specialty pharmacy experts can:

  • Counsel you and your support team on how to properly take each medication
  • Connect you with resources to manage HIV
  • Obtain authorizations from your insurance to ensure your medications are covered
  • Connect you with manufacturers and nonprofit organizations that can help offset medication costs
  • Monitor your therapy, help manage side effects and prevent any drug interactions

Multiple Sclerosis

Aurora Specialty Pharmacy regularly treats people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Although there is no cure, you can manage MS with effective specialty medications, including:

  • Interferons, a type of treatment that reduces MS episodes and slows the progression of physical symptoms
  • Immunosuppressants and monoclonal antibodies, to help alter immune response to the disease

  • Proper nutrition, especially how to get enough calcium and vitamin D
  • Exercise, including which types may be right for you
  • Lifestyle changes, such as reducing alcohol intake and stopping smoking

We offer a variety of osteoporosis medications, including:
