We had almost seventy entries. We had to add an age category because we had so many entries in the 6-11 group. The breakdown ended up 0-5, 6-9, 10-12, 13-18. There will be some LEGO oriented games at the drugstore from 10-12 for anyone who just cant get enough…

Have you ever looked at what is on the pharmacy label?  Corner Drug Pharmacy  in Driggs is here to help you understand how to get the most from your pharmacy experience.  Today I will share with you a pharmacy label and help you understand what and where the important information is.

Here is an example of a pharmacy label.  Different pharmacies will have a different looking label but all the basic information will be the same.

In the Blue Box is Corner Drug Pharmacy information including the phone number.  All pharmacy labels will have the dispensing pharmacy information on the label which is why it is helpful to bring your bottle with you to transfer to Corner Drug.

Directly below the blue box it says Rx# 330632.  That is what is known as the prescription number.  Every prescription gets assigned a unique number to that pharmacy.  This number is an easy way to refer to your prescription when calling in refills without having to stumble over awkward pronunciations, (although we do enjoy some of the attempts).

To the right of the number is the pharmacist initials who filled the prescription and the date of that fill.

The next two lines are patient information and address.  If we have an old address in our computer, please let us know so we can update this along with a current phone number.  Our software also lets us send a text message when your refills are ready so if you want that service please share your cell phone number.

Under the patient is the directions for taking the medication that the doctor gave us on the prescription.  If the doctor told you different from what it says please let us know so we can verify with the physician which directions to use.  This becomes important when getting a refill if the insurance thinks a 30 day supply is one pill a day, but the doctor told you to take two pills a day.

Then we come to the name of the medication and it’s strength.  Off to the right is the manufacturer of the medication. Next line shows the quantity and often the brand or generic name is printed for reference.

The name of the prescribing doctor is printed and under the name is a recommended discard date.  This date usually is one year from the date dispensed.

Then the label will show the number of refills remaining along with the expiration date of the prescription.  Sometimes your label may show refills remaining but the expiration date has passed.  In Idaho, pharmacy prescriptions are only good for one year (some controlled medications are less time) at which time they expire and the pharmacy will need a new prescription. Corner Drug Pharmacy will contact your doctor for you to request more refills/new prescription but it is the doctor’s discretion to do this or you may need to be seen before they authorize more medication.

If you have any questions about your pharmacy label please ask us.

Unused Medication

Corner Drug Pharmacy in Driggs wants you to know the proper way to dispose of unused medication

(The following is taken from www.fda.gov regarding drug disposal)

Most drugs can be thrown in the household trash, but consumers should take certain precautions before tossing them out, According to the FDA.

Do not flush prescription drugs down the toilet unless the information on the drug label specifically instructs you to do so.

Take advantage of community drug take-back programs that allow the public to bring unused drugs to a central location for proper disposal.  Call your city or county trash service to see if such a program is available in your community.

If no instructions are given on the drug label and no take-back program is available in your area, throw the drugs in the household trash, but first take them out of their original containers and mix them with an undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter.  The medication will be less appealing to children and pets, and unrecognizable to people who may intentionally go through your trash.  Also, put them in a sealable bag, empty can, or other container to prevent the medication from leaking or breaking out of a garbage bag.

For more information, visit www.fda.gov

Are you getting ready for the first annual Corner Drug LEGO Contest?

I don’t think anything like this has ever been done in Driggs or Victor before, let alone the rest of Teton Valley. We are not aware of any pharmacies having a contest like this, but we think it will be a great way to help pass the winter-time blues.

In case you haven’t heard, Corner Drug Pharmacy and Toystore is sponsoring a LEGO Contest.

Starting March 1, 2012 we will start accepting entries and have them on display in the window boxes at Corner Drug Pharmacy.

1.  All entries must be an original creation.  (Not a “kit” that you followed the directions to put together.  Slightly modified creations from kits will be judged as non-original creations.)

2.  All entries must be entered by March 8 at 6 pm.  If you would not like your creation to be displayed at the store you may bring it in for us to see and we will take several pictures of it for the judges to use.

3.  Entries that are on display remain the property of the creator and Corner Drug is not responsible for lost, missing or damaged items.  (We really don’t expect any problems, but this needs to be understood by contestants.  If you are worried about your entry, have us take a picture for the contest and you can take it back home with you).   We have had several people ask about bringing a very large size item in.  We will try to accommodate these entries as best as possible but space may become an issue.

4.  Judging will take place on Saturday March 10, 2012 with the winner announced at noon that day.  Saturday morning we will have some LEGO oriented refreshments and games starting about 10 am.

5.  Entries must be picked up by 6 pm on March 10.  Again, Corner Drug is not responsible for lost, missing or damaged items.

6.  Contestants will fill out an Entry Form and agree to the terms of the contest.  Contestants will be given a coupon at the time of entry that can be exchanged for a free ice cream cone at the Corner Drug Soda Fountain.

Since this is the first year we have done this, rules may be modified and decisions by owners are final.  We are doing this for fun and hope that everyone who participates has fun.

We announced the LEGO contest this week and it has been getting lots of attention from moms as well as kids.  We have detail flyers at the store as well as on our Facebook page and on this site under Toystore / Toy Specials.

I see lots of kids on their knees as they crawl around in the store checking out the newest releases from LEGO like Ninjago.  I know some kids are already “spending” their winning gift certificate on more LEGOs.

If you’re kids have any creations that they would like to have me post here, please send them to me at huntersinc@silverstar.com.  (Submitted pictures should not have any children in them.  We reserve the right to choose which pictures are posted; in other words keep it tasteful.)

The LEGO shipment has arrived at Corner Drug Pharmacy!  We have the newest releases and some of the older favorites.  LEGOs are fun for all age groups from 1 1/2 to 106 years.  I say 106 years because that’s how long Corner Drug has been serving Teton Valley and Driggs, Idaho area with everything from prescriptions to sunglasses to fishing licenses.

Details on our winter LEGO contest will be announced soon…
