Pharmacy



The UCF Pharmacy is a state-of-the-art facility located inside the Health Center. Our Pharmacists are passionate about patient education and providing excellent customer service.

Students, faculty, and staff are able to use the UCF Pharmacy for all of their prescription needs.   Each prescription is monitored for duplicate therapy, drug allergies, and drug interactions. The pharmacy staff prides itself on the level of care they provide to each patient, offering individualized consultations regarding how and when to take medications, potential side effects, possible drug interactions, and written drug information for each prescription.

For your convenience, the pharmacy also carries a wide selection of food, drinks, personal care products, and over-the-counter items.

The UCF Pharmacy takes over 100 different prescription insurance plans, so filling your prescription will be a snap! If your insurance plan requires a copay, payment is due at the time the prescription is picked up.

Please note: Many insurance companies provide a special card for pharmacy use. If you are bringing in an insurance card, please make sure it has the RxBIN, RxPCN, ID#, and Group# on it. If your card does not have this information, it may just be for your medical coverage. You should have a separate card for your pharmacy benefits that will include these details.

Example:

 

Meet with our Pharmacists for a free consultation about the management of your asthma. Topics discussed include medication, triggers, long-term control vs. quick relief, and more! To schedule an appointment, please speak with a Pharmacy staff member.

For your convenience, the pharmacy also carries a wide selection of food, drinks, personal care products, and specialty items.

Bring any unwanted or unused medications to the secure Drug Take Back boxes located in the UCF Pharmacy or the Student Union. The service is anonymous and for individual use. Boxes are secured to their locations, and once medications are placed inside, they are unretrievable. To be destroyed, the medications are collected by the DEA to be incinerated using the appropriate means as specified by the FDA.

Why?

Unwanted and unused medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse. Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision. Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved, abused, and/or illegally sold. These same medications could contaminate the water supply when flushed.

Proper disposal of unused medications saves lives and protects the environment.

What can be dropped off:
