Online Prescription Refills
Compounding is where pharmacy began. The first pharmacists were called apothecaries meaning they prepared and sold their own medications. Today, with large manufacturers producing hundreds of thousands of doses daily, the art of compounding has now become a niche in the pharmacy world. The problem with large manufacturers is that patients are treated with a “cookie cutter” approach to medicine. Compounding however, can take into account specific patient needs in order to create a custom medication just for one patient.
At our Collier Compounding Lab, we take the personal touch that began with those early apothecaries and combine it with modern technology and high quality assurance to produce custom medications that can meet our patients’ specific needs. We specialize in all types of compounding, from creams, gels, and ointments to custom capsules, suppositories, and more.
A primary focus of ours is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT. Every patient is different and by offering custom doses of hormone medications, we have literally helped thousands of men and women regain their proper ‘hormone balance.’ Call and talk to one of our team members about how we can assist you in regaining your ‘balance.’
Our pharmacists are specially trained to provide expert advice on diabetes care and management. We provide information on diabetic care, testing products, and nutrition information. We also have a complete line of diabetic products and supplies.
Since diabetic patients face an increased risk for serious foot disorders, we offer custom shoe fitting at our North Hills location to make sure you have properly fitting shoes. For qualified diabetics, Medicare Part B allows for 1 pair of shoes and 3 pairs of inserts per year. Our shoe line includes Dr. Comfort, Drew Shoe, and Natural Step.

Diabetes Supplies (Glucometers and Supplies)
Diabetes is a chronic disease that has its own set of challenges. From managing medications to dietary restrictions, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and costs can get out of hand in a hurry.
That’s why at Collier Drug, we do everything we can to simplify the glucose monitoring that comes along with diabetes. All of our retail locations can bill your insurance for test strips and lancets. We will even work to find out which if any glucometer your insurance prefers in order to ease the financial burden that diabetes can bring.

Medication Multi-Dose Packaging
The Collier Drug Store locations at Willow Creek and Prairie Grove now offer Dispill® Multi-dose Packaging. Dispill® is a safer, easier, more convenient system for dispensing prescription drugs that not only improves medication adherence, but also helps to maintain patient independence and quality of life. These benefits extend to all patient types—those with multiple-dose requirements, children or adults with various disabilities, patients in foster or group homes—there are no exclusions. The blister-cell design allows for packaging of multiple daily medications per cell and organizes them by time of dose, eliminating the need for abundance of pill bottles, bulky pillboxes, and excessive single-dose bingo cards. On top of it all, these pre-packaged doses are safely filled and carefully checked by your pharmacist!
Download and bring a completed copy of the Multi-Dose Packaging Form to either our Willow Creek or Prairie Grove locations to get started. You can also get more information by reading our article on the Dispill® system, “Multi-dose Packaging: Simplifying Your Medication Schedule.”
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
As we age, our bodies will naturally begin to produce less hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. However, this natural decrease can throw our hormones and our bodies out of whack! Women can begin to experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, and weight gain just to name a few. Men can often experience a lack of energy, decrease drive, and erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, we don’t have to simply accept these problems. We can do something to regain the natural balance that allows our body to function as it should – that’s where Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy comes in!
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement or BHRT is the practice of using hormones such as estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone in the right ratios to achieve the balance our body desires. The hormones we use at Collier Compounding have the same structure to those we would naturally produce; hence Bio- (Biologically) Identical. We like to explain BHRT as supplementing what the body would naturally make, rather than adding a medication that the body may see as “foreign” to it.
We also understand that no two patients are exactly alike. That is why compounding is so great for BHRT! We can customize a dose that meets YOUR needs and addresses YOUR concerns! At Collier Compounding, we offer a BHRT consultation service that includes saliva hormone testing and an in-depth one-on-one consultation with our BHRT specialist pharmacist. Following your consultation, we will make a custom recommendation to send to your physician to review and return to us. We have worked hard to build trusting relationships with many prescribers in the area and we are always willing to discuss your situation with your doctor to answer any questions.

Patients on Medicare Part D regularly receive requests from insurance companies to change prescription drug plans. Each plan’s marketing usually makes the case that they are the best plan on the market. However, what each plan often leaves out are the true costs of joining their plan.
At Collier Drug, we offer a FREE service that will analyze each Medicare Part D plan based on your individual medications. By doing this, we can help you find a cost effective plan that will leave more money in your pocket each year.
This evaluation factors in both the premium (how much you pay each month) and the copays for each medication you take. There are many factors to consider when selecting a plan, including what preferred medications that plan has, copay tiers, premiums, and potential limitations on medications. The worst part is that these plans change each year.
