About Big C

Our Pharmacist and staff are readily available to answer questions you have concerning your medications and will gladly take the time discuss or show you how to use the medications or supplies prescribed by your doctor.

One of the ways that Big ‘C’ Drugs offers more personalized attention to their customers is through our compounding. Compounding is the ability to prepare unique, otherwise unavailable, and more palatable dosage forms of medications. In our compounding lab, the pharmacist can customize medications to suit the patient’s needs. Most compounding requests come from doctors and it is essentially a triad-doctor, patient and pharmacist.
Big ‘C’ continues to move forward with technology as well as staying abreast of the latest medical pharmaceutical breakthroughs. For the highly technical patient, Big ‘C’ now offers Refill Rx. Refill Rx is a website dedicated to providing you access to “your” pharmacy via the Internet. With Refill Rx, you are able to perform functions such as submit refill requests, learn the status of your prescriptions, view and print patient education leaflets, as well as obtain valuable store coupons.
Perhaps you or your spouse qualifies for Medicare-D coverage, but you do not know which plan will be best for you. Big ‘C’ can help you make these types of decisions easy for you. We have insurance specialists that will assist you in choosing the right plan.
