We carry some common medications such as antibiotics, birth control, antidepressants, and dermatology medications in our dispensary. CHWS does not stock any medications with high abuse potential, or controlled substances. Commonly used over-the-counter medications can be found outside of CHWS at the self-help station.
CHWS cannot fill prescriptions from other healthcare providers. However, if you need to refill a medication that you take routinely, you may schedule an appointment to discuss this with one of the CHWS healthcare providers, and they can write a prescription for the medication that you need. Please bring any medical records pertaining to the medication and why it was prescribed with you to your appointment. If you need medication that we do not have in stock, the healthcare provider may write you a prescription that can be filled at an off-campus pharmacy. Alternatively, you can ask your current provider that your prescription be transferred to a pharmacy near campus. There are 3 pharmacies within 1 mile of campus:
