Prescription service any time day or night


Walgreens understands the important role caregivers have. Managing your loved one's prescriptions can seem overwhelming. How do you as a caregiver know how much of each prescription to give, or when? What if different doctors prescribe medications that interact with each other? For questions such as these, turn to your Walgreens pharmacy.

Medication Report

After enrolling in the services recommended by the personalized report, you will receive free medication reports to discuss with your Walgreens pharmacist. These reports demonstrate how effective these services have been in helping manage your care recipient's medications. The report includes your care recipient's medication and refill profiles, as well as the pharmacist's recommended goals.



Medication Manager

This free personalized chart identifies all your care recipient's day-to-day medications, providing a brief description, medication strength and dosage instructions. It's also a great place to record additional over-the-counter medications and results of daily readings to discuss with your Walgreens pharmacist on your next visit.

Refill services that make it easy

 

Auto refills

A great service if your care recipient takes the same medication every month, especially if their prescriptions must be filled on different days of the month. Sign up in-store or online, and we'll automatically refill each prescription a few days before it runs out and then call or email you when it's ready.
