Hi all,
My daughter has one prescripton that must be compounded.....we had one pharmacy here in Fayetteville that did it and now they're closed. We refilled it at Duke and they'll mail it to me but for $10, every month that'll be a pain. Is there a pharmacy that someone knows of that does this? In CT our local Walgreens did it, but of course it can't be that easy here!
Thanks, Joan
ps My husband is currently living in uptown in an apartment, but I don't know where we'll end up living...we're looking all around, so anywhere in the area will be good to know about.

Default Medical Buildings...

Most of the large medical buildings uptown (I'm thinking along Randolph Rd near Presbyterian Hospital, in particular) have pharmacies on the ground floor. I'm betting some of those could help - or at least refer you.

Ah, I thought of Stanley Drugs, but I thought they closed. I see they reinvented themselves. I went to college at Kings College next door.

Compounded Medications
Some patients are allergic, do not respond to, or have difficulty taking traditional medications. "Compounded" medications is the creation of medications using raw chemicals and ingredients that are customized to meet the specific needs of each patient; most commonly made with all natural ingredients, or reformulated into alternative dosage forms (for example, a cream, ointment, or liquid instead of a capsule or tablet).

One of my boys used to get delivery of a certain medication in lollipop form. That's an example of a compunded prescription.
