Drug Take Back Day

Saturday, April 27th from 10am to 2pm.

In early April when the local disposal sites are announced we will post them on our website and on facebook. Please use this opportunity to get rid of expired, unwanted and unused medications, especially pain medications. This is your opportunity to help stop the opioid epidemic! 

Last April all collections sites across the United States collected 949,046 pounds of medications and Minnesota collected 23,505 pounds. That was a fantastic amount of unused medications that were able to be properly destroyed! 

Clean out your cupboards, closets and medicine cabinets, and put all of your unwanted medications into a bag to be turned over to law enforcement officials on Saturday, April 27th at a drop-site.  .

Easter is Sunday, April 21st

The Easter Bunny has visited Center Drug to stock up on Easter Candy and for fillers for Easter baskets. The Easter Candy has been selling very quickly this year, so be sure to stop in soon for the best selection, even though Easter isn't till later in the month.

Don't wait until the week before Easter to buy your candy, as we may not have much left by then. We also have a supply of Bunny Feet Tracks for you to purchase. A package is only $1.25 and they are HOT!  
Allergy Season

Allergy season has definitely arrived! Many people are stopping in with questions as to the best products they can take for their allergy symptoms. 

Our most popular choices are Claritin (loratidine), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Flonase Nasal Spray, Ortho Molecular's D-Hist, and NeilMed Sinus rinse. Most people don't always think of Sinus rinse for allergies, but using a saline sinus rinse on a daily basis is safe and will keep your nasal passages healthy and clean of pollen . OTC Flonase (which is the same strength as the prescription version), when used on a daily basis can relieve nasal congestion, itchy, watery eyes and noses and sneezing. Remember to pick up some Kleenex too!

Please feel free to speak with any of our Pharmacists about your allergies and what products are right for you! 
Sockwell -- Feel better in style!

Sockwell offers therapeutic socks that provide four zones of graduated compression within their sock to promote circulation, minimize swelling, and reduce fatigue. These socks are great for people who sit or stand for long periods of time, travel, have varicose veins, or for those who have leg and foot swelling. These socks are made in the United States and are made from cashmerino and rayon from bamboo. The cashmerino is natural merino wool that is important for moisture management, breathability and temperature regulation. Merino wool helps you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It is also able to absorb moisture and move it away from the skin to evaporate into the air which helps keep your feet dry and comfortable all day. The bamboo rayon is important for the odor fighting and durability properties that provide for a luxurious fit and feel. These socks are blister resistant and provide a seamless toe closure and a non-bind welt top for comfort as these socks do not slip, or roll at the top. They provide all day comfort and energize your feet and legs, especially if you stand all day. Besides the great comfort these socks provide, the next best part is that they look great! They come in a variety of designs that are stylish and don’t look at all like your standard black, beige or white support socks!

The price point on these socks is $24.99, which is very competitive with the price of other compression socks, especially given the quality of this product! These socks wash up beautifully and you will want multiple pairs to fit with all your wardrobe choices! Make sure to check out Sockwell before your next vacation road trip or flight!
