Contrave Prescription for Weight Loss

Those who are interested in losing weight should get in touch with Mango Clinic. We have licensed physicians who can evaluate you and help you determine what medication is best for you. Contrave can help many patients lose weight, as well as help promote a healthy lifestyle of exercising and eating right. Mango Clinic understands that everyone is different and that everyone has their reasons for losing weight. We want our patients to understand how effective a weight-loss drug can be and how it works best when combined with a total change in one’s lifestyle.

Everyone who has the aim to lose weight has their wants to do so for one reason or another. Whether you want to avoid heart problems, diseases, or are interested in becoming more fit, losing weight is rarely a bad idea. In the case of some people, losing weight is what they need to live a healthier life that will allow them to live better.

However, losing weight is not always so easy. For some, they may think it is impossible to lose weight effectively. It may look like something a privileged few can do, but it isn’t. No matter your situation, losing weight is not out of your reach and is something you can achieve. It may not always be easy, and it can definitely be harder for some, but there are options for everyone.

What Is Contrave?

Contrave is a weight loss drug aimed at treating those who classify as overweight or obese. The reasons for needing or wanting to take medication can vary, but what matters, in the end, is the effective use of the drug. If you are interested in a weight-loss drug, Contrave will help you lose weight in a healthy and helpful manner. The drug is a combination of two medications that target neurons in the body in order to limit your appetite and increase your energy.

Weight loss drugs do not magically make you shed pounds while you sleep, but when combined with exercise and a revised diet, it can be immensely effective. You also may not see results as quickly as you want, but that is all part of the process. Weight loss drugs are made to help you lose weight steadily, as this is both a healthy and safe way of losing weight. So if you start taking Contrave and only see yourself losing a few pounds in a few weeks, rest assured this is normal. What’s more important is that you keep losing weight over the months that you continue to take the drug.

Diet and Exercise with Contrave

If you plan to start losing weight with the help of medication, you have to make sure you are also exercising. While people know that exercising is a healthy activity that can help you lose weight, some people may not understand that weight loss medication directly benefits from exercise. The truth is that drugs like Contrave can only really work when combined with exercise, as the drug alone can only do so much. If you want to ensure healthy and regular weight loss, you have to get in shape.

Types of Exercise

Exercising can be a variety of things, as there are activities for all types of people. If you’re into sports, you may consider participating in one as a form of exercise. With the number of sports that exist, there is no doubt that there is something that will help you stay active and lose weight. Participating in a sport can also help you form social bonds, which is essential when you’re trying to lose weight and become healthier.

If you are more interested in going to the gym, you will be happy with the number of options you have for working your body. From cardio machines to weights that let you focus in on specific muscles, the gym provides a place for all types of people to stay in shape. You can even get a personal trainer who will be able to provide you with special exercises that work best for you. A personal trainer can also help you form a diet, which is especially helpful if your trainer doubles as a nutritionist.

Another popular option for exercise is going for walks. Many people do this as a regular part of their week, and it can be an excellent option for some people taking weight loss medication. If going to the gym or doing a sport is too strenuous for you, then simply going on walks is best. Any form of physical activity is essential, so if walks work best for you, make sure you do so regularly.

Diet

The other most important thing to compliment your weight loss medication is a revised diet. Many people will tell you that exercise is only one part of losing weight; if you do not have a healthy diet that compliments your exercise, you won’t find yourself losing as much weight. A healthy diet is a key to making sure the exercise and medication are being put to good use. What sort of diet you have is up to you, as there are a variety of diet plans out there for every type of person. Most people would recommend a low-calorie diet, as taking in too many calories is a major factor for why some people gain the weight that they do.

With a combination of exercise and a new diet, Contrave can help you lose weight in a way that is both healthy and effective. While you should not be expecting miracles from a weight loss drug, do understand that modest progress is still a good thing. As long as you stick with the medication, exercising, and diet regularly, you will see results in the long run that will keep you healthy and lower your chances of disease and risk.

If you are interested in being prescribed Contrave, get in touch with Mango Clinic. You may call us at (786) 422-9327 or visit our website to make an appointment with one of our licensed physicians.

ESA-Snake.jpg

Emotional Support Snake

Having an emotional support animal can be the best decision for a person struggling with a mental or health disorder. With the variety of animals at one’s disposal, there are many options for owners choosing an ESA. There is also a lot of misinformation about what qualifies as an ESA, how to get an ESA letter, and so on. Mango Clinic wants to keep you informed by providing helpful information that you can use when getting an ESA of your own.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

Some people do not respond positively to medication or therapy sessions that treat their health condition, ailment, or disorder. Some people have better reactions to some alternative forms of therapy or treatment. One of these alternative forms is an emotional support animal or ESA for short.

On the surface, an ESA is no different than a regular domesticated pet. This is because many ESAs are already pets that patients own and want to make a doctor recommended for treatment. Even if you do not already have a pet but want an ESA, you do not have to look for anything too special. ESAs are not required in any way to be trained or registered; you find your ESA the same way you would any regular pet.

As for what counts as an ESA, you will be happy to know that cats and dogs are not your only options. Cats and dogs being the most popular pet options for people are likely what makes them notable ESAs. However, your choice for an ESA can expand to include birds, pigs, rabbits, and even snakes.

ESA Snake

When you tell someone that an ESA can be a snake, they might be perplexed. In some cases, a person might be outright reviled to think that a snake could possibly be an ESA. After all, are snakes not poisonous? Are they not a dangerous animal that only strange people keep as pets? How would you feel if someone brought their snake with them on an airplane?

Rest assured, if snakes were truly as hazardous as their reputation would imply, then they would not be allowed to be ESAs. On the contrary, if you are up for having snakes as a pet, they can be very rewarding pets and ESAs.

ESA Snake Benefits 

Emotional Suppport Animal Snake Benefits
Benefits of having a snake as an ESA

                                                        

  1. Less likely to spread allergy problems                                                         

One of the first things we want to mention about snakes is that they are hypoallergenic. This means that they are way less likely to give someone allergy problems, especially in comparison to so many other animals. The reason why this is so notable is that some people cannot be within any distance of a dog or cat due to allergies. Additionally, some people have allergic reactions to types of fur or some other element that prevents them from owning most types of animals. Thus, a snake can make for a perfect alternative.

  2. Odorless Animal

This benefit can be connected to a snake’s scales. Animals can be known to give off odors or scents that can be highly intolerable for some. Snakes, due to having scales, are odorless, and thus give off no smell. This can be another advantage if someone is particular about scents and how their ESA might smell.

  3. Easy to Take Care Of

Something else you may not know about snakes is how easy it is to take care of one. Due to it already being rare to know someone who owns one, it can be easy to think that snakes are high-maintenance. However, once you have gone through what a snake needs to survive, you will learn just how independent they can be. While some animals require much of your attention, snakes are more than okay with you checking in every few hours while they enjoy their alone time. This can be optimal for patients looking to get an ESA that can stay independent but keep them company when needed.

   4. Limited Living Space Needed

Unlike some animals,  ESA snakes do not need a lot of living space. Cats and dogs can roam around a house and usually need to go outside at some point. But some animals, like a rabbit, can have variable living space that does not need to be too large or too small. Snakes are the same way, as they spend most of their time in their custom tanks. These tanks do not need to be that large and can usually take up the same amount of space as a personal aquarium. The size of the snake will determine whether you need a smaller or larger tank.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal Letter?  

Emotional Support Animal Letter
Why An ESA Letter? And why to get an ESA letter?

Emotional support animal letters are already recommended for most owners, but those with snakes should especially get one.

  • ESA housing letter

With an ESA housing letter, you and your animal companion will be able to live comfortably in an apartment complex that may otherwise object to you having a pet. The letter will not allow a landlord to charge you more per month or kick you out because of your ESA.

  • ESA travel letter

If you intend to travel with your ESA, then you might also want an ESA travel letter. With this letter, you and your animal companion will be able to board airplanes without being forced to pay an extra fee. This letter will also protect your ESA from being thrown in cargo.

How To Get An ESA Letter With Mango Clinic

There are plenty of scam sites online that do not offer legitimate ESA letters. If you use Mango Clinic, you and your animal companion will reap the benefits of having an officially signed ESA letter.

To get an ESA letter, you just have to make an appointment with one of our licensed physicians. Whether in person, over the phone, or via video chat, you will be able to speak directly with a licensed physician. You tell them why you want an ESA or why your pet in question is your ESA, and if you’re approved, you will get a signed document. We will provide a PDF and physical copy of your letter to you.

If you would like to make your appointment with Mango Clinic, you can easily give us a call. Or, if you would rather do it online, you can visit our appointment webpage today.

Weight-Loss-Medications_-Belviq.jpg

Belviq (Lorcaserin): Uses, Benefits, And Side Effects

Mango Clinic understands how hard it can be to lose weight, which is why were are here to help patients find an easy way to do it. Drugs like Belviq help many patients lose weight in a healthy and effective way, and we want to make sure you can be among those patients. With the assistance and guidance of our licensed doctors, Mango Clinic can help you decide as to what type of medication to get based on your unique circumstances. Every person is different, so it is important that you understand the function, benefits, and risks associated with Belviq.

When it comes to losing weight, it can be challenging for some people. Though it may appear to be as easy as doing some exercise regularly, it is not always so simple. If you are overweight or obese, simply exercising will not do the job effectively. Some people in these situations may even think that they are unable to actually lose weight and may not attempt to do so. There is always a way to live a healthier lifestyle, just as there are many ways to lose weight. It’s a journey, but it can be taken with advisors and a variety of treatment options and life choices that result in a healthier way of life.

What is Belviq?

If your BMI (body mass index) puts you at overweight or obese, you may consider effective ways to lose weight. Belviq, which is a brand name for the generic drug lorcaserin, is one such way, as it is a weight loss drug that helps the body limit your appetite, which then helps a person lose weight. In this way, a person taking Belviq will be prone to eat less and benefit from the foods they eat in a way that is healthier for them.

A drug like Belviq is not meant to work overnight, and this is something that you must keep in mind if you intend to take it. Weight loss drugs are meant to help you lose weight, but they are not meant to be taken by themselves and let results happen while you do nothing additional. Not only that, but weight loss drugs are also not meant to make you shed pounds in record time. You are supposed to lose weight in increments, as this is a healthy and normal way to lose weight over time. As long as you are losing enough weight per month at a regular rate, Belviq will be helping you lose weight effectively.

Diet and Exercise with Belviq

One of the most important aspects of losing weight is that there is more to it than just taking medication. The drug will undoubtedly help, but the drug alone cannot do its job unless you are also taking care of yourself. This means having to do some life changes in the form of your routine and what you eat. It may not seem important to some, but plenty of people would say that the most vital part of losing weight is what you eat, as well as your exercise routine.

Your weight loss medications are going to be more effective if you change your lifestyle

Those who take Belviq should make sure their diet is one that will continue to help them lose weight. Even if you were not taking a weight-loss drug, eating healthy is key to making sure your journey to lose weight is as effective as possible. This often means having a low-calorie diet comprised of low-calorie foods, which is among the most recommended diets for those needing to lose weight. However, there are a variety of other diets that exist, so when looking into it, choose the diet plan that works best for you. Whether you are eating less, eliminating a specific food type, or consuming more of a healthy meal, there is a diet plan for everyone.

Along with making sure you are eating right, you must also make sure you are staying active. This means making sure you are exercising, which could include a variety of activities. Going to the gym allows you to do a variety of exercises and establish a routine that works for you. You can even get a personal trainer who can help you form a routine so that your weight loss journey is at its most optimal.

The gym is not the only way to stay fit, as many will tell you. Getting into a sport can also help, whether it is intensive or not. This can include soccer or basketball, two sports that involve multiple people and a lot of physical activity. If you are not interested in a sport, you can always go for walks, which are often done by many, as it is one of the easiest and most peaceful ways to get exercise. This can be a desirable option for many who would instead not do activities that might be too strenuous for them. So, like diet plans, there are exercise routines that can work for everyone.

Anxiety-Medications_-Lorazepam.jpg

What Are Benzodiazepines?

Among the most popular types of prescription drugs are benzodiazepines, commonly referred to as “benzos.” These drugs are most commonly prescribed for anxiety treatment. Additionally, getting prescribed is not too difficult, as long as you have a valid reason for needing the prescription. Benzodiazepines are widely available in generic form, though branded drugs still exist and continue to be a dominant form of recognition of the drug in some parts of the world. Lorazepam also known by its brand name of Ativan is amongst the popular ones.

Around the world, people take different types of medicine for various reasons. These reasons can be because of ailments, symptoms, disorders, or just general stress from life. Sometimes the reasons are not so well defined, and many times they do not have to be, depending on the person. The widespread creation of prescription drugs has allowed many people from all walks of life the opportunity to find relief in an easy and safe manner. Precisely for this reason, Mango Clinic Miami can help you get the right help and appropriate prescription medication you need. With the help of our professional medical staff, we will be able to evaluate your situation and determine which type of medicine is best for you. Every patient is different, which means not every drug will work for everyone. Mango Clinic understands this, which is why we make sure to take care of each patient and understand their unique situation.

What Is Lorazepam?

Among the benzodiazepines that have proven popular with users is lorazepam, which is often taken for treating anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, seizures, and withdrawal. If you feel regularly anxious, lorazepam will calm you down and let you live a more balanced life. While not intended to be taken for long periods of time, this drug, like other benzos, has proven to be a significant benefit for those who otherwise would continue having severe anxiety.

Lorazepam works by interacting with the body’s GABA receptors and neurotransmitters. By bonding with the GABA neurotransmitter, it is able to influence the actions of the receptors that flow throughout the body. This then allows the user to become more relaxed and calm, resulting in a substantial decrease in anxiety. This also affects the parts of the body that can cause seizures, which is what makes lorazepam recommended for those who suffer from the disorder.

Lorazepam Risks

Individual users may have complications with taking lorazepam, which can be the result of previous issues or life circumstances. Some of these can be age, such as people being too young or too elderly to take lorazepam without assistance if they can take it at all. Being hypersensitive or having sleep apnea can also prevent some people from being able to take the drug. If you are pregnant or may become pregnant, taking any type of benzodiazepine is not recommended.

Like with any benzodiazepine, there are serious risks involved with taking lorazepam. While these side-effects do not affect everyone, it is still imperative that you understand the possible effects that can happen to you. It can also help you better decide whether the drug in question is best for you, especially since it can vary from person to person.

Lorazepam Side-Effects

Stop waiting. The relief is there. Call us now!

Common side-effects associated with lorazepam involve feeling overwhelmingly tired and exhausted. Sedation is among the most prominent of the different side-effects, which can contribute to the suggestion of when and how one should take the drug. It is not too unusual to feel tired after taking a benzodiazepine, but sometimes the effects can be stronger and less warranted than expected. For these reasons, always be sure you fully understand the possible consequences of taking lorazepam or similar benzo.

With all prescription drugs, there are risks involved with how the medicine will affect the user. However, for all the good benzodiazepines have proven to be for so many across the world, there are some serious consequences. While it does not happen to everyone, benzos have been known to cause dependency in many of its users. This means that patients can become addicted to drugs, which might then lead to tolerance.

Lorazepam Dependency And Tolerance

Dependency and tolerance are among the most dangerous risks one can face when taking benzodiazepines. Among the side-effects, problems arising from addiction to benzos have been cited as a major issue that affects many. The legal status of the drug, combined with how easy it can be to acquire, sometimes results in situations where users become addicted.

These issues of dependence, along with tolerance, can cause overdoses, something that has happened to an alarming degree. Even if it never gets to that, there is still the danger of the body becoming tolerant of the drug, causing the user to increase their dosage and want more benzos. This can be a bad way to live one’s life, especially since drugs like lorazepam are meant to be a short term part of one’s treatment. Those with addictive histories are strongly advised against taking benzos for this reason.

If you or a loved one requires anxiety treatment in the form of medications, make sure you understand the risks involved before consulting with your doctor. Once you have decided that you may need anxiety medication, get in touch with Mango Clinic to make your appointment. Our staff of licensed doctors can help you understand which drugs are best for your unique situation, along with possible risks and benefits.

ESA-Dog.jpg

Emotional Support Dogs

For some people, recovering from a mental or health disorder requires something more than just medication or even therapy sessions. These can all be very helpful, but they can always be supplemented by something more. Something that can make the days feel safe and warm, something that can make a person get up in the morning and ready to take on the day, something like an emotional support animal, or better yet, an emotional support dog.

An emotional support animal is a companion for those who feel increasingly better when they have their favorite animal with them. An ESA does not have to specially trained in any way; their presence is all that is needed to be effective for the owner. All you have to do is pick a domesticated pet and consult with a medical professional who can sign you an ESA letter; your regular dog becomes an ESA dog.

Mango Clinic provides ESA letter services for those looking to get a genuine document that can be used for either travel, housing, or both. We make sure each of our ESA patients speaks directly with a doctor before being given a signed document; in this way, it is a completely valid letter. Neither airlines or landlords will be able to dismiss the letter when it is completely legit, meaning you and your ESA will be able to travel freely and find a new place to live without hassle.

Top 5 Emotional Support Dog Breeds

Among the most popular choices for ESAs is an emotional support dog, which is also happens to be a popular pet all over the world. Due to their friendly nature, loyalty, and reliability, dogs find themselves being chosen very often as one’s ESA. For these reasons, we have decided to present an unranked list of the top five ESA dog breeds that are most recommended for potential ESA owners. Each dog has its advantages, so don’t feel as though one is better than the other, or that you have to pick and choose from just these five.

Golden Retriever

When you think of a big, lovable dog, there is a good chance a Golden Retriever is what you imagine. Well-known among the public, this breed is extremely popular, sometimes overwhelmingly so. Aside from shedding plenty of hair, Golden Retrievers are popular for a reason, providing much love and energy for people of all ages. Their large size can also be exceptionally comforting for some, as is their very fluffy hair.

It’s also important to remember how active Golden Retrievers can be. If you intend to get one, along with understanding how big they are, make sure you’re okay with a dog who is always up for some fun. This can make them good choices for those that want an ESA who will keep them active.

Pit Bull Terrier

There is a belief that pit bulls are inherently dangerous, that they should be avoided, and that they can easily hurt you. However, the reality of it is that a pit bull is not any more dangerous than every other domesticated dog that people own as pets.

The reputation that pit bulls have mainly comes from their history as dogs that were bred to be fighters, an unfortunate but real part of history. Dog fights would have these specially bred pit bulls go against each other in matches, but in the 21st century, dogfighting is illegal in the USA. Along with that storied past, pit bulls can still be used as dangerous animals for protection, hunting, or other related activities.

It can come as no surprise that people are hesitant about pit bulls, but the reality is that they’re a terrific choice for an ESA. Loving, caring, and always protective of their owners, a pit bull can be an excellent addition to one’s life. However, states have different laws pertaining to pit bulls, so be sure to inquire before deciding to get one.

Poodle

A smaller breed type, poodles can be an excellent choice for those who want their ESA to be on the smaller side. Poodles can be very fun and loving with both children and adults, further proving them to be apt ESA choices. They are also known as one of the most intelligent breeds, which can come in handy for owners who want their ESA to be a bit more hands-on. This also makes poodles a good choice for those wanting an active ESA that might encourage them to go out and play in the park.

Pug

Pugs are another small breed of dog, which can be exceptionally comforting for many. They are known for being active, happy, and of course, loving towards their owners. While they can be fond of taking it easy, a pug can be a great ESA dog for those who want something small but tenacious.

Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are often mixed up with Golden Retrievers, but their shorter hair is often the main giveaway. Retrievers are a generally popular dog breed in the USA and UK, and the Labrador is no exception. Like Golden, they are a bigger breed, and the two do share a similar size, along with look, without as much shedding.

Labradors come in unique varieties based on their color, such as yellow, black, and chocolate. They are also well adapted to training and performing tasks, in case that is something an owner would like their ESA to do. In any case, Labrador makes for a great emotional support dog due to the character, history, and popularity among many.

Ritalin-for-ADHD.jpg

What Is Ritalin and Who Is It For?

Ritalin (a brand name for methylphenidate) is primarily for patients who have ADHD or narcolepsy, two disorders that can be treated with stimulants. For those with ADHD, they have issues such as restlessness and being unable to focus, which can prevent them from doing work or maintaining relationships. It can also be disruptive, in case it gets in the way of things such as work and social events. Luckily, Ritalin has proven to significantly help those with ADHD, as it treats and improves their symptoms for the better.

Narcolepsy is the other main disorder that Ritalin is recommended for treating. This disorder can leave a person exhausted throughout the day, wanting to sleep all the time, and in some cases, falling asleep where it can be least appropriate (like during a meeting). Ritalin has been proven to help those with narcolepsy, as it treats the symptoms associated and allows the user to remain more productive throughout the day.

What Are Stimulants?

If you are looking for a stimulant such as Ritalin to help improve your health, then get in touch with Mango Clinic Miami. Helping local and remote patients alike, we provide health services that let people live their best life in a relaxed and accessible way. Ritalin can help patients with ADHD and narcolepsy who want to treat symptoms that range from minor to severe. As a legal prescription drug that can be prescribed to many people, Ritalin comes with various benefits, along with risks and side-effects, that are important to know.

With the stress of life almost always hanging over us, it can be difficult for some to stay concentrated and focused on the things that matter most to us. Sometimes things get in the way, whether they are physical obstructions or mental roadblocks. Certain people even have disorders that prevent them from being the best version of themselves. Sometimes they admit to having these disorders, other times they have denied them for years. The issues individuals have will always vary, and there are always optimal solutions for treating them.

ADHD Treatment: Ritalin
Ritalin (methylphenidate) is a synthetic central nervous system stimulant

How Does Ritalin Work?

You might be curious to know how a stimulant such as Ritalin is able to help those with ADHD and narcolepsy. While we do not have to get too in-depth, the main components involve our brains and its neurotransmitters. Those asking to get Ritalin often have a brain that is looking for an activity and is lacking it for whatever reason. The stimulant goes to the brain’s reward center and gets it to release dopamine, which provides stimulation in the brain, which makes it active.

Like most other stimulants, you do not have to be suffering from ADHD or narcolepsy in order to take Ritalin. As a legal and prescribable drug, it has found itself as a popular choice for many who suffer from stress (only based on anecdotal reports) and lack of concentration. Students, in particular, have found themselves as users of this medication, as it has been shown to help with focus and alert thinking. While some may think much of this has to do with recreational use, it has been shown that students who take methylphenidate are genuinely interested in performance enhancement. Unlike Concerta, which is also methylphenidate and its extended-release variation, Ritalin starts working almost immediately and only works for a few hours so you can take it later in the day without any fear of insomnia as a side effect.

Ritalin Risks

While drugs like Ritalin provide users with beneficial effects that improve their health, there are still risks involved. Medication already comes with side-effects, so this is not surprising; in any case, it is still important for users to know of these effects. Some of these physical effects can include hypertension, nausea, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, and blurry vision. These are just a few of the many side-effects that can occur if you take Ritalin, though many of them are not that common, with some of the most severe ones being extremely rare.

Ritalin Side-Effects

Aside from common physical symptoms, side-effects can also be psychological, which can sometimes be an even greater problem than physical symptoms. Anxiety and insomnia are, ironically, some of the common psychological effects that a user of Ritalin can endure. It’s also possible that a user can have a greater sense of alertness than is normal, which might make them even more restless than before they took the medication. Users may also find their libidos and self-confidence diminish, which can be a problem that does not improve matters for someone being treated with Ritalin.

In addition to side-effects, stimulants have a chance of being abused by users, which can then lead to tolerance, dependence, and even overdosing. Tolerance can happen because a user takes too much of their dosage, and their body has become accustomed to it. While it might make sense to increase your dosage if this happens, it can be problematic if the user exhibits dependent traits. If increasing the dosage would only worsen the conditions of the user and their drug use, then it is not recommended and should stop immediately taking the drug.

Dependence can sometimes contribute to tolerance, which can make the treatment process with Ritalin more harmful than helpful. It also has ties with addiction, which is essentially what happens to those who abuse their prescriptions and take more of the drug than they are supposed to. While addiction is already a problem, it can also lead to an even greater issue, which is overdosing. This is a problem that can affect users of prescription medication, as many people over the years have overdosed on these types of drugs. It’s not unusual to hear about users who abuse their prescription meds and then end up in the emergency room due to an overdose. While it does not happen to everyone, the legality and ease of access make it a more significant possibility among patients.

Hamster for Emotional Support

Having an emotional support animal can be the most beneficial thing for a person recovering from a health disorder or ailment. But understanding the rules regarding ESAs is not always easy, like which animals qualify or if one can have an ESA Hamster. People think only dogs and cats qualify, but there are other options that some do not even consider. Mango Clinic wants to let patients understand that animals as small and cuddly as hamsters can qualify, and provide their own unique benefits.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

People know how important their pets are to them, to the point where they consider them part of their family. For many of these people, they could not possibly live a day without their pet because they mean that much to them. In more serious cases, their health could be severely affected if they are not with their animal companion.

In cases where being with their pet makes them calm, comfortable, and happy, their pet might qualify as an emotional support animal. For someone’s pet to qualify as an ESA, they must essentially be a sort of treatment for the owner. In this way, the ESA presents benefits that others might find when they take medication or go to therapy sessions. The ESA then serves as a treatment option that improves the life of the owner in a noticeable and significant way.

Any domesticated pet can qualify as one’s ESA, and it will depend on the owner. If your pet makes you happy all the time but you don’t feel any sadder when you’re away from them, you may not be able to qualify them as an ESA. This designation is for people who need their pets in order to go about their day to day activities and functions. This is why an ESA letter can come doctor recommended, as not everyone will understand the importance behind a person’s pet, especially if it is something like an ESA hamster.

Are cats and dogs the only types of animals allowed to be ESA’s?

ESA Hamster

It’s easy to think of dogs or cats when it comes to ESAs, though many other types of animals do qualify. Among these other animals are hamsters, which some might see as unconventional, even though it makes just as much sense as a dog or cat.

Hamsters are already a well-known pet among many, especially young children. Their small size and limited living space can make them great pets for many types of people. If you do not want a pet that may be seen as intensive to take care of, a hamster can be very ideal. They are also very adorable, as many hamster owners will attest to. Therefore, a hamster can make an ideal support animal for some people. 

ESA Hamster Benefits

Among the biggest benefits to an ESA hamster is their extremely small size. Few mammals that people have for pets are so small, which can make hamsters very appealing for many potential owners. Hamsters do not need as many resources as a dog or a larger animal might, such as an entire bowl of water or a lot of food. This can be a very good thing for both the hamster and owner, as this means less stress on you when taking care of your ESA.

Hamsters, like rabbits, do not require as much living space as other animals might. Most people are familiar with hamsters being kept in cages, though this is not a requirement. A decent-sized living space for a hamster could be no bigger than a cage or it can a bit freer. This will depend on the owner, who will also have to make sure their ESA hamster is kept happy and healthy. If your ESA is not healthy, then you cannot expect it to be as helpful to you as it otherwise might be.

An ESA hamster’s small size comes in handy when you are living in a home that is not your own. If you choose to keep them in a cage, this can make it easy for you to place them somewhere easily accessible. Since hamsters do not make nearly as much noise as other animals might, their small living space and character can be good if you do not want to bother neighbors.

If you plan on taking a trip, bringing your hamster with you will be much easier than if you had a large dog. Due to their size, the most you would ever need to bring for your hamster is a cage to keep them in. This makes them perfect ESAs for people who travel a lot or do not have a lot of living space for their pet.

What Is An ESA Letter?

If you intend to live in a residential complex or go on a trip with your ESA, you will want to consider getting an ESA letter. These are documents signed by licensed physicians who look you over and decide whether your ESA can qualify as a form of treatment. After the doctor evaluates you, they will write and sign an ESA letter for you, which you can use for housing, travel, or both, depending on which letter you choose.

With this document, landlords will not be able to force you from your apartment or make you pay additional fees. As long as you have an official ESA letter backing you up, airlines will not be able to restrict you from boarding your flight or make you put your ESA in cargo.

How To Get An ESA Letter With Mango Clinic

Getting your emotional support animal letter does not have to be complicated. Mango Clinic makes it straightforward by asking you to speak with a licensed physician and that’s it. We make it easy for everyone, but more importantly, we do it legitimately. If you want to make sure your ESA letter is official, you have to speak directly with a licensed physician who can sign your letter afterward. Mango Clinic provides patients with a PDF and physical copy, both of which can be used at your convenience. To make your appointment, complete this online form or call us today at (786) 422-9327.

Concerta-for-ADHD.jpg

ADHD Medications: Concerta (Methylphenidate)

What Are Stimulants?

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help patients from all walks of life, whether you’re remote or a local South Floridian. If you are suffering from ADHD/ADD, we can help you get properly evaluated and prescribed by one of our licensed physicians. There are many benefits to being prescribed an ADHD medication with Concerta being one of them, as it can treat a range of symptoms and specific disorders. However, it is important that you understand the risks involved, as well as the benefits and ways that make stimulants work as well as they do for patients the world over.

Life is full of ups and downs, and we do not always have the time to take care of ourselves properly. Even if we make strides in making sure we are healthy, certain things about our health may be hard to notice or take care of. In some cases, it is possible that there is something wrong with us that we have become accustomed to or we do not want to admit to. Sometimes these feelings, whatever they may be, have been with the person for years, and it hasn’t been a disruption to their daily life until recently.

What is Concerta?

Some people who have these sorts of issues end up having ADHD, which can be treated with Concerta, which is a brand name for the generic methylphenidate. Those with ADHD are prone to being highly distracted in nearly any environment, which can be a big problem at work and with friends and family. This can also mean they are restless and unable to stay still, which can be highly disruptive for the individual, as well as others, therefore, ADHD treatment is oftentimes not optional. Whether the person has had it since childhood, or if it only recently has come into the person’s life, it is wise to get it treated. A lack of concentration and inability to focus is not good for most, but Concerta is able to treat this disorder with great success.

Another disorder that can be treated with Concerta is narcolepsy, which may not be as common as ADHD, but can be just as problematic. A sleeping disorder, individuals with narcolepsy are prone to feeling exhausted throughout the day and in need of sleep on a frequent basis. The most famous symptom of narcolepsy is falling asleep at random, often in places where it is less appropriate, like a board meeting or family gathering. Concerta has proven itself to be an effective treatment option for those with narcolepsy, allowing patients to live better as a result.

Concerta (Methylphenidate)
Concerta is a stimulant drug.

Concerta works in much the way similar stimulants do, in that it stimulates the brain and releases dopamine. When the brain is under extreme duress, such as in ADHD cases, it is craving stimulation that it cannot get otherwise, which is further exacerbated by the lack of dopamine flow. Your neurotransmitters are not acting as they should, and this is causing the brain to have a bad time, which results in an individual being restless and lacking focus. By stimulating the brain and releasing dopamine, your brain gets the activity it so desperately wants, allowing you to regain your focus and stay concentrated, along with more alert.

Concerta Types

Concerta specifically is unique among stimulants as it only really comes in one variety, which is extended-release. It can last for up to 12 hours, which usually means taking one dose per day, or a least once every 12 hours (which usually means once a day for most people). Due to its stronger and longer-lasting effects, it can be recommended for patients who want a powerful stimulant. For that reason, it may not be recommended to all; those with severe ADHD and narcolepsy symptoms might prefer Concerta or similar.

You do not need to have ADHD or narcolepsy to be legally prescribed Concerta, as long as you qualify for the stimulant under the conditions required. A variety of symptoms, ranging from anxiety to stress, can qualify a person to be prescribed Concerta, as it will allow the person to regain their calm. This is why stimulants are so popular with college students, as they are able to keep their focus and concentration with drugs like Concerta. While it is easy to assume that many are interested in stimulants for recreational purposes, it has been shown many take the drug for legal and legitimate purposes related to mental enhancement.

Concerta Side-Effects

For all the benefits that taking Concerta provides, there are also side-effects that should be kept in mind. While there are common ones, such as hypertension, nausea, dry mouth, and sexual dysfunction, there are also psychological side-effects which can be just as problematic. Some of these, though not as common, include anxiety and insomnia, as well as a decrease in self-confidence and libido.

Some of the more serious risks involved with Concerta are tolerance and dependence. If you take too much Concerta at a time, your body can become used to the drug, creating a tolerance that decreases the effects of the drug. This can make the user think they need to be taking more of the drug, which can then lead to dependence on the user. This dependence can easily be translated into addiction, which can turn deadly if the user takes too many pills and overdoses. Overdoses on stimulants are not unusual and can be a real risk if you become addicted to Concerta. This is why people with a history of drug abuse and addiction are not recommended to take stimulants, as it can lead to more problems than solutions.

Taking Concerta can help many people, and if you think you would benefit from it or any other type of stimulant, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Our staff of medical professionals will evaluate your situation, figure out the best medication and dosage, and provide you with a prescription you can take to your local pharmacy.

Emotional-Support-Animal-Rabbit.jpg

Rabbit as Emotional Support Animal

There are plenty of options for you if you want to get an ESA. While cats and dogs are never in short supply, you might be considering something else.

Among other popular choices for an ESA are rabbits, which are already a popular domestic pet. Known for being small and quiet, an ESA rabbit can provide immense comfort and joy for their owners. When keeping in mind that all an ESA has to do is be there for the owner, the benefits behind having a rabbit as your ESA begin to appear.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

For some patients, an emotional support animal can provide benefits that other forms of treatment are unable to reach. While traditional medication can be very helpful, it is not always as effective. For these reasons, a person can often be recommended an ESA.

Unlike service animals, which are trained to assist their owners, ESAs do not need any sort of special training. An ESA can be an already owned pet that the patient wants to officially designate as their ESA. So if you have a health disorder or ailment, and you own a pet that makes you feel so much better than you normally would, they could qualify as an ESA.

How your pet makes you feel is what qualifies them. If you love your pet, but do not feel distressed when you’re away from them, then they likely do not qualify as an ESA. However, if you feel awful without your pet, and feel immensely better with them, than they can qualify. If need be, a doctor can evaluate your case to determine whether your pet can be a recommended form of treatment.

ESA Rabbit
Can any animal be an ESA?

For many people, an emotional support animal resembles a dog. In some cases, an ESA could be a cat, or many cats, for those that claim more than one animal. However, these are not your only options for an ESA, and Mango Clinic wants to make sure patients know. Can I have an ESA rabbit, some might ask; a miniature horse, a pig? There are a variety of animals that can qualify to be your ESA, and this includes a rabbit, one of the most popular options outside of a cat or dog.

ESA Rabbit Benefits

No doubt one of the biggest advantages of having an ESA rabbit is their size. This makes them easy to carry and bring with you, as well as making them easier to play with. The smaller size also means less food is needed to feed them, at least in relative comparison to larger animals. This is part of what makes rabbits easy to take care of.

Being as small as they are allows for rabbits to have a smaller living space. This is not a requirement, however; the size of a rabbit’s living habitat can vary. If you would like for their living space to be confined to the size of a medium-sized cage, you absolutely can, though you will still give them room to roam. On the other end of this is dedicating a whole room to your rabbit, which is also entirely possible. The amount of living space you want to provide to your ESA rabbit is up to you, as long as it is healthy for them.

Some owners allow their rabbits to roam their yard, which gives the rabbit exercise and a natural place to roam. This is important, as the health of your ESA can determine how much they can help you, as well. While an ESA patient is more likely to look after their pet than a regular owner, it is still important to keep in mind how to take care of them. Rabbits are not cats or dogs, so make sure you understand what to do to benefit both you and your new animal companion.

One other benefit of being small is that it makes them easier to take with you. If you live in an apartment, having a small rabbit can save you a lot of space that might otherwise be taken up by an animal. If you’re going on a trip, your rabbit will be less of a hassle than some other animals would be. Not only that, but their quiet nature is sure to not bother nearly as many people as if you had a larger animal for an ESA.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal Letter?

If you live in an apartment with strict animal policies, you will want to consider having an ESA letter. This document will prevent landlords from issuing unfair fees towards owners of ESAs. If you do not have documents backing up your ESA, you could easily be charged more per month or be forced to leave your apartment.

Airlines are already notorious for being difficult, so imagine how problematic it would be to bring your ESA onboard an airplane. If you do not have an officially written ESA letter, airlines will have no problem putting your ESA in cargo or preventing you from boarding your flight. On the contrary, an ESA letter will let you and your animal companion board without additional complications.

How To Get An ESA Letter With Mango Clinic

It can be easy to come across illegitimate businesses online, but Mango Clinic is nothing like those. If you want to get an officially written and signed ESA letter, we will be able to provide it for you. Whether in person, over the phone, or via video chat, we will make sure you speak directly with a licensed physician who can recommend your ESA as a legitimate treatment type. Once you have been approved, your letter will be emailed; you will also receive a physical copy. If you want to make an appointment with Mango Clinic, you may apply here, visit our appointment website or contact us by calling us today at (786) 422-9327.

Prescription-Medications_-Focalin.jpg

ADHD Treatment and Medications: Focalin

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help all types of patients with a variety of health services. This includes getting prescriptions for Focalin, methylphenidate which can help people who have ADHD/ADD, narcolepsy, or other related ailments. We at Mango Clinic understand each patient has their own individual needs and circumstances, which is why we want to make sure our patients understand the benefits of Focalin, who is allowed to be prescribed it, and what to look out for in case you decide this drug is right for you.

Who Is Focalin For?

If you find yourself having trouble concentrating at work, with friends, or even on your own time, you are not alone. This is something that happens to many people, and in some cases, this is an issue they have had to deal with for most of their lives. While it can be one thing to have trouble focusing as a child or teenager, when it comes to adulthood, having a family, and holding a full-time job, it can be a major problem. It can get to the point that the person in question is unable to get their work done, is being disruptive to their work environment, or their relationships with coworkers, friends, and family are not as healthy as they once were.

People with ADHD, whether severe or minor, understand that an inability to stay focused and concentrated can be extremely troublesome for them and those around them. With ADHD, a person can often be very restless, have trouble staying still, and become easily frustrated. This can be detrimental to a person’s work and family life, but drugs like Focalin (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride) allow them to return to a life of normalcy. With this drug, a person with ADD/ADHD will find their focus restored, they become more alert, and their concentration is back to where it is productive.

Focalin is also recommended to people who have narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is a sleeping disorder where the person who has it will find themselves wanting to go to sleep during their regular waking hours. Even if they have had a full night’s sleep, and they should otherwise be full of energy, they will not be and may want to take naps often during the day. This can then lead to the most infamous symptom of narcolepsy, which is falling asleep during the day at random points. Be it during work, when hanging out with friends, or while you’re going for a walk; narcolepsy can cause people to fall asleep at all the wrong times. Focalin is able to provide users with the relief they need to live a healthier life, giving them the energy they need to stay awake.

How Does Focalin Work?

Drugs like Focalin work the way they do by helping the brain and body’s neurotransmitters act more as they should. By targeting the brain, Focalin is able to help it release dopamine, something that is not happening in most people who would be having symptoms that could be treated by Focalin. In this state, the brain is craving all the attention and activity it can get, but it, unfortunately, cannot achieve this, causing it not to act how it should. By releasing dopamine into the body, a person with these symptoms will be able to regain their focus, concentration, and alertness. By giving the brain the activity it so desperately needed, the mind is able to relax again and work just as it should.

Focalin
Focalin is a stimulant drug used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy

While very helpful for ADHD and narcolepsy, Focalin can be very helpful for other people, too. You don’t have to have one of these two disorders in order to be prescribed the drug, just as long as you fall under the qualifications necessary. If you feel you might qualify, all you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with your licensed physician, who will then be able to better determine whether you do or don’t qualify.

This is part of what makes Focalin so appealing to students since the drug is able to keep them focused and concentrated when they might otherwise be stressed and distracted. College can be an overwhelmingly hard time for some, and it can be easy to lose track of dates and assignments. With Focalin, students are able to keep their focus and concentration among the many deadlines, classes, tests, and essays that need to be met or attended to. While it is easy to think a college student is mainly focused on the recreational aspects of Focalin, it has been shown that many of these students do in fact take the drug as intended.

Focalin Risks

Making sure you take Focalin responsibly is essential, as it can be very easy to abuse these sorts of ADHD prescription drugs. While there are common side-effects associated with Focalin, not many people know of the other ways a prescription drug can be dangerous, and that mainly involves tolerance and dependence.

Call Mango Clinic today for your appointment

If your body becomes tolerant to your current prescription, you may become tempted to call up your doctor and increase your dosage. This is something you can do, but you have to be careful that it does result in further tolerance and dependence. Once you become dependent, you increase your risk of abusing the drug to the point where you might be taking too much. When you take too much of a prescription drug, you can find yourself coming close to overdosing. Abuse in the case of prescription drugs is not uncommon, so be sure this is not the case with you if you decide you want to be prescribed Focalin.

Contact us here at Mango Clinic if you would like to speak with a licensed doctor about Focalin or other prescription drugs. Our medical staff will be able to speak with you and help you understand what the best options are for you, including drug types and dosage. Simply complete our online form, call us on 786 422 9327 or visit our appointment webpage to set up your appointment today.
