Pharmacies?

Post by johnnyo979 » Feb 10 2016 9:16 am

Does anyone know if there sufficient pharmacies along the trail? I have medication I have to have refilled every 30 days. Or will I have to hitch a ride long distances into a nearby town?

A list of gateway communities is available on the Arizona Trail website: http://www.aztrail.org/gateway/gateway.html

I would recommend googling the name of one of the communities and pharmacy.

Example: "Vail, AZ Pharmacy"

You've probably thought of this, but just in case.... Have you spoken to your doctor about getting an extended prescription. Many times if a patient is going to be traveling their doctor will write a prescription (or contact the pharmacy) allowing for a two or even three month supply. Might be worth a call to ask.
