Medication services offered in Joliet, IL


Most acute injuries and illnesses respond to rest, relaxation, and hydration, but more serious issues may require prescription medication. At Rise and Thrive Healthcare, Jessica Gutierrez, FNP-BC, and the team administer medications in-house. Whether you need a dermatology cream, B12 injections, or ketamine, the compassionate providers can help. To make an appointment, call the office in Joliet, Illinois, or book online today.

What is prescription medication?

Prescription medications are drugs that require the approval of a qualified healthcare provider. These medicines are safe and usually well-tolerated, but they can present risks. As a result, you cannot buy them at the drug store or grocery store over the counter.

To ensure your safety and positive treatment outcomes, Jessica and the team at Rise and Thrive Healthcare administer some prescriptions onsite. That allows for close monitoring, reducing the risk of side effects.

What are some of the medications I can get at the office?

At Rise and Thrive Healthcare, Jessica and the team offer several types of medication, including:

Dermatology creams

If you have a chronic skin condition, like rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema, your provider might prescribe a topical lotion, ointment, or gel. These products can reduce inflammation, ease the intensity of flare-ups, and help you look and feel your best.

Fat burner supplements

Many people struggle to lose weight, even after committing to a healthier diet and regular exercise. If you want to make lasting progress, Jessica and the team might prescribe a fat-burning supplement. Fat burners increase your metabolism, ensuring you stay on track.

At-home ketamine infusion

Many people with chronic depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) struggle to find a treatment option that provides lasting relief. Jessica and the team at Rise and Thrive Healthcare have experience administering ketamine infusion therapy at home. After an evaluation and review of your medical records, they can determine if you qualify for treatment.

You can also get B12 shots and B12 self-injection kits at Rise and Thrive Healthcare. If you have a vitamin B12 deficiency, it can affect your energy levels, ability to focus, and mood. A high dose of vitamin B12, administered via injection, can restore your body to balance, reducing uncomfortable symptoms and encouraging proper metabolism.

Will medication benefit me?

After a review of your health history, a physical exam, and a series of lab tests, including blood work and urinalysis, Jessica and the team can make recommendations that align with your needs, which may or may not include medication.

To see if you can benefit from medication, make an appointment at Rise and Thrive Healthcare by calling the office or booking online today.
