Prescriptions Stocked at the Pharmacy

Our formulary lists the products we keep in stock. Although our providers work from our drug formulary, in some cases we special order certain medications.  If your prescription is written for a drug not on the formulary, please call the Pharmacy at 919.515.5040 to see if we can order the drug for you. It usually takes one day for us to receive the drug from a wholesaler. If you do not pick up your prescription within seven days, we will return it to our stock.

Medication Questions

We provide counseling on all prescriptions. If you have questions about medications or drug interactions, please call the pharmacy at 919.515.5040.
