Many individuals rely on various prescriptions or medicine to regulate their daily lifestyles, but international students may find the pharmacy system a considerable hurdle to overcome. Those exposed to U.S. pharmacies for the first time might have misconceptions from what is considered “normal” in their home country, and this may affect those unaware of these new expectations. Some can even become too focused on only getting medicine from a pharmacist, without first considering all of their options. By following the guide below, you can make the most out of your pharmacy visits and make better informed decisions regarding your options for prescriptions.
