Did you know as of October 1, 2013, immunizing pharmacists in the state of North Carolina were authorized to administer CDC recommended vaccines to patients at least 18 years of immunization age? Now, pharmacists and pharmacy interns can administer pneumococcal, zoster (Shingrix), hepatitis A + B, tetanus, Tdap, HPV, and meningococcal to patients 18 years of age and older. Pharmacists can also administer the annual influenza vaccine to patients at least 10 years of age. We also offer travel vaccines here at the pharmacy. Speak with one of our pharmacists or technicians. You can take charge of your health and stay up-to-date by receiving your vaccines at Central Pharmacy.
Sync My Meds
One of the biggest inconveniences people have with their medications is just how often they have to go to the pharmacy to pick them up. If you could pick all of your medications up on one day each month, would you do it? With Sync My Meds you can. Just let our pharmacy team know you are interested in the Sync My Meds program and we will come up with a plan to synchronize all of your medication fills. The best part is that this program is absolutely free.
Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements
What do we mean when we say pharmaceutical grade supplements? We mean supplements that come from reputable companies who get their products tested for quality and purity. About one-third of supplements do not contain the ingredient or the amount of the ingredient that they claim. With pharmaceutical grade supplements you don’t have to worry about this problem.
Supplements have a wide variety of uses. Whether you’re looking to treat an ailment naturally or need additional support for a particular condition, ask our pharmacy team if we have any supplements that could benefit you. Our pharmacists can help you pick out the perfect product for your needs. Once you have found a product that works for you, feel free to order our online store at Wellevate for a discount!
Do you take prescription medications?
Many prescription drugs can decrease the levels of certain vitamins and minerals in your body. This can contribute to side effects of the medication or just an overall lack of well-being. Ask our pharmacy team if your medications can decrease your nutrient levels. If so, there may be supplements that can help.
Ditch Your PPI
Did you know that there can be serious health consequences to using the class of acid reflux medications known as proton pump inhibitors (also known as PPIs) long-term? Some of the consequences include vitamin and mineral deficiencies, osteoporosis, dementia, increased risk of respiratory infections, and increased risk of C. diff infection. Some studies even suggest that there may be an association between PPIs and gastric cancer.
PPI medications include Prilosec (omeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Nexium (esomeprazole), Protonix (pantoprazole), Aciphex (rabeprazole), and Dexilent (dexlansoprazole). In partnership with Central Compounding Center South, Central Pharmacy has launched Ditch Your PPI, a service to help decrease the use of these medications. If you would like to learn more about this program, visit us here.
If you decide that you would like to ditch your PPI, call us at 919-220-5121 to schedule a consult with one of our pharmacists.

Medicare Plan Reviews
Open enrollment season can be confusing. We’re here to help! Ask our pharmacy team about scheduling a consult to review your insurance plan options. Often we are able to find our patients plans that save them money!
Specialty drugs are medications that are high cost, high complexity, and often require frequent follow up. Sometimes they have to be obtained from specific pharmacies called “specialty pharmacies.
We are not a specialty pharmacy, but through a partnership with another organization we do have the ability to provide a large number of specialty medications for our patients. If there are any medications that you get from a specialty pharmacy, we may be able to fill it for you!
