Specialty medications are used in the treatment of chronic conditions and complex therapies such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS) and cancer. Depending on the condition and prescribed therapy, these medications may be taken orally (by mouth), intravenously (IV) or self-injected.
These medications often require special handling, such as refrigeration or time-sensitive delivery. Some of them are available only through limited distribution and they can be expensive.
