Medi-Center Pharmacy Services
This is a service that is somewhat new to pharmacists. Prescriptive Authority means that if you are on a chronic medication and are out of refills, the pharmacists at Medi-Center can prescribe one month for you so that you don’t have to go without those medications that can be so crucial to your health. We can do this for most medications, but it’s important to note that there are some medications and situations that don’t allow us to do prescriptive authority for you. Prescriptive authority can also be done when you have forgotten your prescription somewhere else, or you didn’t have a chance to pick it up at a different pharmacy before they closed. Medi-Center is open extended hours, evenings, weekends, and holidays, and we encourage you to come to us if you are out of your medication and we will do our best to help you continue your medication regimen flawlessly.
Have you ever felt a cold sore coming on but didn’t have time to wait in the doctor’s office for another prescription of the anti-viral medication or topical cream that you usually get when you have a cold sore? This is one example of where minor ailments prescribing can be very beneficial to you. Pharmacists currently have the ability to prescribe for seven different conditions. The conditions are: cold sores, canker sores, allergic rhinitis, diaper rash, bug bites, oral thrush, and acne. The pharmacists at Medi-Center Pharmacy are trained to be able to diagnose and prescribe an appropriate medication, then fill the prescription and make sure you’re comfortable with how to use it.
Medi-Center strives to provide the best care to our patients, and we do that by offering FREE delivery within Prince Albert city limits. Let us know if you need your next prescription delivered.
Free Blister Packaging
Sometimes, it can be difficult to remember to take one medication, let alone multiple medications. Medi-Center offers blister packaging, which means that we will put your medications in an easy to understand package. We put all of your medications in the appropriate time slots so you know when to take them and you’ll be able to easily keep track of whether you took them or not.
Medi Center Pharmacy has 3 pharmacists and 2 technicians that are certified in compounding. We are one of the only pharmacies in Prince Albert who can offer such an advanced service. We can help you with anything from flavouring a medication for your child to making a medication for your pet. There is almost no limit to what we can do: capsules, gels, creams, ointments, solutions, suspensions, and more! With a little time, patience, and discussion with your doctor, we can improve any dosage form, make any dose you, your child, or your pet needs to complete a medication regimen.
