Warfarin Blood Testing (PT/INR)
If you are taking warfarin you need to have a blood test to make sure you are taking the correct dose. The blood test checks how long it takes for your blood to clot and is called an INR test. The INR blood test is usually done by a laboratory, however now there is a new test available that means it can be measured using a small sample of blood from a finger prick. A number of pharmacies are now able to do the new finger-prick INR test and we are one of those special pharmacies! Please call the pharmacy at (614) 882-2392 for more details

Pharmacists will be available to adjust therapies for optimal outcomes which will increase therapy success for the patient.
Medication therapy management
We want to make sure you are taking the best medication for you! Why take something that isn’t working or causing additional problems? During our Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Session our pharmacist will review all of your medications, their intended purpose, and possible side effects. We will determine if the medications are achieving their desired outcomes, and evaluate if more effective medications are available. We will also see if alternative therapies are available that could lower your costs. Many people think of this as an annual physical or dental exam where we are giving your medications a “check-up”. Many insurance plans will often cover this service at no cost to you.
Local delivery of medications is available for a fee of $5.00. Medications are delivered between 3-5 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Medication orders must be placed by noon for same day delivery. Our delivery area extends north to Maxtown Road, East to Sunbury Rd, West to the 71 Overpass, and South to Schrock Road.
We are able to now offer you genetic testing that takes the guess work out of medication selection- which means safer, more effective, and better tolerated therapy for you right from the start. Uptown Pharmacy participates in the MD Labs/Rxight™ pharmacogenetic testing program. Please visit Rxight's website for more information, or talk to one of our pharmacists who are Certified PMR Specialists today.
