Towncrest Pharmacy is a locally-owned community pharmacy. Not only do we fill prescriptions, but we also provide other healthcare services that are customized to meet your specific needs. Here are some of the extra services we offer at our Iowa pharmacy to ensure all your medication needs are met with excellence.

1. Medication Therapy Management

Medication Therapy Management is one of the services our Iowa pharmacy offers to help you manage your medications and health conditions. With this program, our pharmacists will make sure you are getting the most benefits from the medications you’ve been prescribed. We will answer questions about side effects from medications and how best to take them so they are most effective. Our expert pharmacists will also answer questions about your health conditions and even questions about diet and exercise. No matter what concerns or questions you have, our pharmacists will help you better manage your medications and health conditions so you can live a healthier life.

2. Health Screenings

Another great service we offer at our Iowa pharmacy is the availability of onsite health screenings. Our health screenings give you the option to get a health checkup without going to the doctor. You can get more information about your health without having to wait for a doctor appointment. Some of the screenings we offer include blood pressure, blood glucose (or blood sugar), and cholesterol screenings. Our staff is highly qualified to provide these screenings so you can find out more about your health and how you can reach your health goals.

3. Immunizations & Travel Vaccinations

Immunizations are a very important step in disease prevention. When you get vaccinated, you’re protecting both yourself and those around you. Our Iowa pharmacy wants to help you stay up to date on the recommended vaccines, which is why we offer a variety of immunizations at our pharmacy locations. A few of the immunizations we offer include Flu, Shingles, Tdap, TD, Pneumococcal, and HPV. If you are planning to travel to Africa, South America, or Central America, you may also need travel vaccinations. It’s important to make sure you’re up to date on routine vaccinations before traveling, and you may need specific vaccinations depending on your travel destination. We can help you determine which vaccinations you need and provide them for you before you go.

4. Multi-Dose Pill Packaging

If you’ve been prescribed a number of medications for different times of day, it can be difficult to keep track of them all. We understand the difficulty of keeping up with all your different medications, which is why we offer multi-dose packaging. This service bundles your medications together in packages by their doses. That means all the medications you have to take in the morning will be packaged together in one pack, and all your evening medications will be packaged together in a separate pack. You no longer need to worry about keeping up with a bunch of pill bottles and trying to read the small-print instructions on each.

5. Compounding

Our Iowa pharmacy offers compounding as an extra service that you can’t find at most commercial pharmacies. Compounding means preparing a custom medication to fit a unique need that can’t be met with commercially available medications. We can combine, mix, and alter ingredients to create a unique medication to fit your individual needs. When your doctor prescribes a medication that isn’t available in a standard dosage, we can adjust the dosage to the appropriate amount to fit your specific health needs. We can also create custom medications that are dye-free, sugar-free, preservative-free, or alcohol-free.

6. Medication Synchronization

It can be difficult to keep up with all your different medication refills. We know it can be a hassle to make multiple trips to the pharmacy to pick up your prescriptions at different times of the month. To help make it easier to refill your medications, we offer medication synchronization, or med sync. This service synchronizes all of your medication refills so you can pick them all up at once. We’ll work with you to schedule one day each month to have all your refills ready so you no longer need to worry about remembering to refill different medications at different times or making multiple trips to the pharmacy to pick them up.

7. Prescription Delivery

We understand that it’s not always convenient to make a trip to one of our Iowa pharmacy locations to pick up your prescriptions. That’s why we offer multiple options to make it as easy as possible for you. If you don’t want to drive to the pharmacy, we can mail your medications to your home. Another option we offer if you live nearby in the Iowa City or Solon area is free delivery. You can ask one of our pharmacists about signing up for this convenient service so you can get your prescriptions delivered right to your door, free of charge.
