3 reasons to stop getting catheters at local pharmacy
When your doctor decides that intermittent catheterization is the best course of action to treat your bladder issues, you may think your local pharmacy is the best place to go with your new catheter prescription. However, you might stop and consider whether your pharmacy can provide everything you need from your catheter supplier. Let’s go over some of the reasons you may want to avoid getting your catheters at your local pharmacy and start getting them delivered right to your door with 180 Medical.

Top Three Reasons To Stop Getting Catheters at the Pharmacy

Now, you may be wondering. Can I just fill my catheter prescription at my pharmacy? It’s possible, although not every pharmacy offers urinary catheters as part of its inventory. Using a pharmacy for your catheter needs may not be the best option for you, and here are several reasons why.

Reason 1. You deserve to choose from a wide selection of catheter product options, types, and brands.

Thinking about filling a new prescription for urinary catheters at your pharmacy? Some pharmacies and local stores may only stock a limited selection of basic catheter options, while others may not even carry or supply intermittent catheters.

180 Medical carries a variety of high-quality catheter types and options. We even carry the latest and most advanced catheter supplies to hit the market, such as discreet pocket catheters, ready-to-use catheters, and closed system catheter kits in male, female, and pediatric lengths.

Reason 2. A supply company specializing in catheters can offer personalized catheterization support and resources.

Whether you’re getting a prescription filled for medicine or catheters at your pharmacy, you’ve probably seen how the pharmacy technicians are often in a rush without much time for a one-on-one to answer your questions.

Our specialists are truly compassionate people who take quality time with you to understand what you need from your catheters, such as comfort, discretion, or convenience.
