As you drive around your town, it may seem like there is a drugstore on every corner. You would think that folks would have no difficulty finding exactly the medications they need, but such is not always the case.
If you’ve ever fumbled with cutting pills in half because they don’t come in the exact dose your doctor wants you to have, or your child won’t take the cough liquid they were prescribed because it tastes “yucky,” then you know that a “one size fits all” pharmacy doesn’t always work.
Sometimes you need more than a pharmacy, you need an “apothecary.” They are not really the same, as the team at Kress Specialty Apothecary of Barrington, NJ hopes you’ll discover that firsthand.
Operated by Registered Pharmacists Rich and Lisa Kress, Kress Specialty Apothecary has their own line of pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements. They are well-stocked, with all the popular maintenance drugs, allergy formulas, and even pet medications. Kress Specialty Apothecary can also compound OTC, topical medications, lip balms, and many more compounded preparations.
The compounding service is also available for commonly-prescribed medications as well as special orders. Because Kress can custom-formulate the exact formula your doctor wants, it can be made in the form that’s easiest for you to use. They can even make some medications into lollipops.
Prescriptions can be phoned in by your doctor, or picked up at your home by courier. If you have an expired prescription, they will pick up the empty bottle at your home and contact your doctor for a renewal. All insurance and third-party billing is handled, and Kress works with State and Federal agencies like PAAD and Workers’ Comp.
Orders are handled by phone or e-mail, and delivered by courier directly to your door. It’s a service that’s invaluable to shut-ins and those with limited mobility, and useful for busy moms, too.
