Discount Drug Program
At Apothicare 360 we know how important it is to our patients and community that they receive the best care possible. We also know that medication costs are an ongoing issue and many people don’t have adequate coverage or any at all.
At Apothicare 360 we like to offer the opportunity to get prescription medications at the most Affordable Pricing.
$4 or free generics that are available are not necessarily the best option. They typically tend to be older generics and not the newest or more popular, common generic medications being prescribed.We offer discounts on popular and common generic medications that physicians actually prescribe. We work with our patients to ensure they get the medications that they need. Our program does not focus on offering the Cheapest Price, but offers Affordable Prices on real medications that people take and need.
Apothicare 360’s discount program isn’t just for patients with multiple or maintenance medications, it also applies to those who are in need of medications for an infection or acute condition. The savings with our program can be substantial and can definitely compete with if not beat the big chain stores, with possible savings of $100’s of dollars.
Savings will vary depending on the quantity, type and brand of the drug purchased. We have over 250 medications included in our program which include dozens of popular medications.
The program provides discounts on U.S. FDA approved medications and according to the FDA website “ health care professionals and consumers can be assured that FDA approved generic drugs have met the same strict standards as their brand name counterparts & contain the same active ingredients as the brand name drug”.
Whether you are on one or multiple medications, in need of antibiotics or maintenance medications, 30 or 90 day supplies, call Apothicare 360 @ (239) 690-7700
Before you drop your medication into the unit, be sure to remove any personally identifiable information from the container. You can do this by tearing off the label or blacking it out with a permanent marker. This protects your personal information.
Please make sure all liquids are placed in a sealed plastic bag before disposal.
Once you’ve done this, simply drop it into our MedSafe medication disposal box and we’ll take care of the rest!
Prior to Medication Disposal
If you have expired prescription drugs still sitting in your medicine cabinet, it’s important to dispose of it properly. Various medications have different rules for disposal, some of which are noted upon receipt of the drugs. However, if you aren’t sure, it’s important to play it safe. That’s why Apothicare 360 offers a take-back program.
Free to the public, you can drop off your unused prescription drugs or over the counter medication in our MedSafe disposal unit where it will be disposed of safely and properly.
Why Proper Prescription Disposal Matters
Getting rid of your unused medication improperly can do harm to friends, family, the community, and the environment. For example, flushing medications down the toilet, pose a health hazard as they seep into groundwater, negatively impacting the environment and your drinking water. Throwing hazardous medication into the trash can be equally dangerous. The risk of consumption by either children in the home or animals can lead to inadvertent poisoning. It also reduces the risk of local drug abuse. According to the 2012 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), over six million Americans abuse prescription drugs. Of that number, 7.4% are youth between the ages of 12 and 17.
Pain relievers are one of the most commonly abused drugs among young people, of which 70% are obtained through friends and family.
Never give leftover medication to friends or family, as drugs are prescribed based on an individual’s unique health history. Prescriptions that may have worked for you can cause severe health risks, injury, and even death in another.
