Total Care RX understands that dealing with any neurological condition can be frightening. We specialize in caring for Epilepsy patients and other neurology patients playing a vital role in treatment and management.
As treatment regimens for neurology conditions become more complex, TotalCare RX can help patients manage medications and out-of-pocket expenses.
This is especially important when first and second line therapies, such as tablets, don’t combat symptoms like they should, and medications such as injections are prescribed. When this happens, we help patients manage increasingly complex funding, storage, and administration issues.
As the fourth most common neurological disorder, affecting approximately 3.4 million Americans according to the National Institutes of Health, epilepsy affects people of all ages. It is characterized by unpredictable seizures and can lead to many other health problems including heart or breathing conditions, depression and anxiety.
Total Care RX stocks the most advanced and effective medications for the treatment of epilepsy. We also play a crucial role in working with our patients to ensure strict adherence with treatment guidelines, as an estimated 30%-60% of patients with epilepsy are not adherent with their treatment regimen. We provide exceptional epilepsy counseling and expert advice for both patients and caregivers to help promote optimal patient outcomes.
Total Care RX specializes in the treatment of Movement Disorders, a group of nervous system conditions that cause voluntary and involuntary abnormal movements .

With Chorea, movements are typically brief, repetitive, irregular and somewhat rapid. Involuntary movements can involve the face, trunk, limbs and mouth. The condition can interfere with swallowing, speech, posture and gait.
Huntington’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. The condition can have a broad impact on the patient’s functional abilities and result in uncontrolled movements (chorea), impaired cognitive abilities and psychiatric conditions.
Parkinson’s is a condition that affects the dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia nigra of the brain, causing patients to develop symptoms such as tremors, rigid muscles, slow movements, and balance problems. As patients go through the five stages of the condition , from mild symptoms to the most debilitating stage, TotalCare RX will be there to help coordinate medications and treatments.
