My daughter was diagnosed with the flu, and no pharmacy seemed to have the medicine she needed. The staff called around until they found a pharmacy with Tamiflu. Thank you so much!!! I really really appreciate the extra mile and will recommend Paramount to all my friends.

Most minor wounds can be easily treated at home, though you may need to seek urgent care if the wound is large or if you can’t control the bleeding. Whenever you have a wound, cleaning it properly is the first stage of healing.
Watch this video to learn how to properly clean a wound. Put pressure on it for about 10 minutes to stop the bleeding, and then remove any dirt or debris you see, wash it with soap and water, and cover it with a bandage. Visit an urgent care center if you can’t clean the wound thoroughly or if the bleeding is excessive.
AtParamount Urgent Care, we are open seven days a week to provide urgent care in Orlando for injuries, flu, and a wide range of other emergent health issues. Find out more about our services by visitingwww.paramounturgentcare.com.
If you takeprescription medicines, there is a high likelihood that at least some of them are generic drugs. Generic medicines represent huge cost savings but offer the same benefits as the name-brand versions. Despite this, some people are still hesitant about taking generics, even if their urgent care or primary doctor says that generic substitutions are permitted. Are generics the right choice for you? Here are the answers to some of the questions that may be on your mind.
How is it possible that generic drugs are the same as brand-name drugs?
The formulations for brand-name medicines are only protected for a set period of time. After that period expires, other people can remake the same drug under a different name. To be approved, the FDA requires that the generic drug has the same active ingredient, strength, use, effect, delivery method, testing standards, and ability to achieve the same level for the same amount of time in the bloodstream. In other words, the FDA ensures that generics are the same as brand-name drugs before they are sold to the public.
Are there any differences between generic drugs and brand-name drugs?
Generic drugs are allowed to be a different color and shape, and they may include different inactive ingredients, such as flavorings and preservatives. Although the inactive ingredients may be different, the FDA must certify them all as safe. The reason that generic drugs are cheaper isn’t because they use inferior ingredients but rather that generic drug makers have far lower expenses, since they don’t have to pay for the same marketing, advertising, research, and initial testing that the creators of the drug do.
Is it always safe to use generic drugs?
There are some medications that your physician may recommend that you always take in the brand-name form. These include medication for hypothyroidism, blood thinners, and certain heart conditions.

Sometimes, even minor cuts can become problematic if they get infected. And if you have a medical condition that suppresses the immune system or delays wound healing, such as diabetes, it’s particularly important to visit an urgent care center for an infected wound. Cleanse the wound regularly, apply fresh dressings, and keep an eye out for the potential signs of an infection.
Seek medical care if the wound begins discharging cloudy fluid, or greenish or yellowish pus. A little pain and swelling is normal, but a wound may be infected if it displays worsening swelling, redness, tenderness, and pain. Red streak marks emanating away from the wound should be evaluated by a healthcare provider right away. Fever is another possible sign of a wound infection. If a wound infection is left untreated, it’s possible that serious complications can develop, so don’t delay seeking emergency care.
