What's new at the 12th Medical Group

By 12th Medical Group | April 17, 2008

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — The Randolph Air Force Base Pharmacy now provides an additional refill pick-up Automated Prescription Dispensing Machine site at the base commissary. The APM in the clinic (located inside the main door) is for new prescriptions only. 

APMs allow dispensing for all prescriptions with the exceptions of controlled substances, refrigerated items and medications stored in large bottles or boxes. However, in order to access the APMs, patients must first register for a PIN at the main clinic pharmacy. 

Active-duty members in uniform are always given priority service during duty hours due to mission requirements. As such, there may be an added wait for prescriptions. 

Several medications that have been added to the pharmacy formulary include: 
Actos
cyclobenzaprine 5mg
carvedilol IR
amlodipine
benzoyl peroxide wash 10%
Diflucan 10m/mL suspension
albuterol 0.083% pre-mix solution
metoprolol 25mg
Mucinex
Mucinex-D
Nexium
Triglide
Glucophage XR
Trusopt 
Atacand HCT

The following medications have been deleted from the formulary: 
Prevacid
Aciphex
Protonix 

For a complete formulary listing of the Randolph AFB pharmacy, please ask for a copy at the main clinic pharmacy check-in desk or call 652-4127. Additionally, the formulary can be accessed at the following Web site: http://www.pharmacyonesource.com/fos/default.asp?L=67891&g=1&f=1392
