Prescriptions written at the health center by the nurse practitioner...
Many prescriptions written at the health center by the nurse practitioner can be filled on-campus for a minimal co-pay. This service is based on availability of medications. You may also take prescriptions to any drugstore. Walgreens, located three blocks away on Platt Street, offers a pharmacy within walking distance. There is also a CVS on Swann Avenue in Olde Hyde Park Village and a Wal-Mart Marketplace on Kennedy Boulevard.
Several over-the-counter medications are available at the Health Center for purchase at a minimal price without an appointment or a prescription. We carry over the counter medicine to alleviate allergy symptoms, cough, chest and nasal congestion, fever, sore throat, runny nose, sinus pain and pressure, and heartburn.
The Health Center has partnered with the UT organization Roots and Shoots to offer students a way to recycle old prescription bottles. Students can bring any old bottles, free of medication and labels, to the health center front desk for recycling. If you have old medications that you need to dispose of, please contact the health center for instructions.
