LaVita Compounding Pharmacy

.

.

 

LaVita has become an outstanding, award winning local compounding pharmacy – see their awards and information below. I think you will like them.

.

Sadly announcing PJ’s Pharmacy sold to Walgreens on May 26 — I learned only hours before the close. PJ’s did not know until the moment papers were signed because contracts can always disappear. Five local compounding pharmacies lost their business in recent months. We will miss 20 years or more of always always being able to rely on PJ’s for great work and their wonderful friendly service!  Small compounding pharmacies are invaluable to our communities and veterans. Their struggle and loss is a sad commentary on the practice of medicine today.

.

Now when you call PJ’s number the call transfers to Walgreens Compounding, who now holds all of PJ’s recipes, your prescriptions and refills.

 

On Walgreens first day, 5/31, a PJ’s patient texted me:

.

“Walgreens had actually messed up the rx-dates, mgs and the number to be refilled all 3 are wrong in the rx they called over.  So please caution your patients to check what they are expecting to get.

.

In my case 10mg became 100, 20 pills became 60.  I could become dead but the pharmacist (receiving) called me to say politely, ‘We are wondering if this is what you were expecting and we are wondering how we would fill it.’ “

.

To transfer from Walgreens to LaVita, intructions are in red below.

.

For your initial visit, Rx that I sent to PJ’s is now with Walgreens. Please make sure you call LaVita ASAP long before your first visit to transfer Rx.

.

Update 5/31: speak directly to LaVita Compounding Pharmacy to transfer away from Walgreens.

.

Please hold any further questions until the time of visit. I hope you can appreciate how many days this has unexpectedly taken already.

To transfer from Walgreens to LaVita

.

  • Starting Tuesday May 31, PJ’s calls are automatically transferred to Walgreens. I will work only with LaVita.

  • Speak to LaVita Compounding to set up an account with them and ask  La Vita staff to call Walgreens at (619) 221-0834 to transfer your prescription from Walgreens to LaVita

  • This applies to all those with an upcoming initial office visit and for those with prior refills —-ask LaVita to transfer your prescriptions from Walgreens. A pharmacy to pharmacy transfer can occur only with your request to LaVita.

    .

It is you who must call LaVita and give them information. 

Rx transfers directly pharmacy to pharmacy.

.

I have no information on Walgreens compounding but early results are very seriously wrong.

Thanks to PJ’s for 20 years of excellence.

It was a privilege to work with everyone at PJ’s Pharmacy and Compounding, to learn from their expertise, first from Mary and, in recent years, from Marjolein whose PharmD was so helpful and whose information added so much.

.

Best wishes to all!

It is not legal for me to give medical advice

unless you are my patient

which means I have done a medical history and examination.

.

I generally accept only those

who have failed most or all known treatments,

and only those who I feel I can help.

 

.

I interview each patient before accepting.
