Pharmacy services


St. Anthony's offers pharmacy services in three convenient locations: the Discharged Patient Pharmacy and two retail pharmacies.

The pharmacy is located on the 1st floor of the main building near the south elevators.

Medication guide

Take your medications safely & effectively

Medications are prescribed to improve a patient’s health – whether it’s to fight a disease, lower cholesterol or provide pain relief. But, medications must be taken properly to ensure the best results. Keep a list of all medications that you take (including prescribed medications, nonprescription medicines, herbal products and home remedies). Also, be sure to keep a list of all medications you cannot take due to allergic reactions. Share these with your physician and pharmacist.

Medication safety guidelines

  • Take only the medicine given to you by your doctor or pharmacist. Do not share other people’s medicine.
  • Each time you take your medicine, read the label to make sure you are taking it correctly.
  • If you have questions, call your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Never take medicine in the dark.
  • Do not stop taking the medicine just because you feel better unless your doctor tells you to stop taking it.
  • Do not take your medicine out of one bottle and put it in another one.
  • Put all of your medicine in a place where children and pets cannot reach it.
  • Keep your "My Medicine List" or similar form updated.
  • If you take medicine each day, using a compartmented medication box may be helpful.
  • Do not keep medicine in the car, by the stove, or in the bathroom, since heat and dampness can affect how it works.
  • Check the date on all medicine. Throw away all medicine if the date written on it has passed.
  • If you feel that any medicine is making you sick or causing you pain, call your doctor right away.
