Central Pharmacy is an independent, family-owned and operated pharmacy that has been serving the Durham, NC area for more than 40 years. Central Pharmacy isn't just any local pharmacy. We provide far more than medications, dedicating ourselves and each service we offer to improving the health of our community. Our pharmacists combine extensive clinical knowledge with individualized care to ensure that every person who walks through our doors receives the best care possible. It is our attention to detail and devotion to our patients that have allowed us to serve this community for over three decades.
Being an independently owned pharmacy gives Central Pharmacy the freedom to be creative in finding new ways to meet our customer's needs. Central Pharmacy does not subscribe to the "one size fits all" philosophy. We believe our success comes from our willingness and ability to go out of our way to find solutions to problems. We offer a wide variety of services to solve some common medication problems that people encounter every day, including multi-dose pill packaging to ease the burden of remembering to take medications. Our medication synchronization program aligns all of your prescriptions so that you can refill them at the same time each month, saving you multiple trips to the pharmacy. If you are a member of this program, you are eligible to receive one free delivery within the City of Durham area every month. We also offer Ideal Protein, a medically developed diet protocol designed to help you lose weight and keep it off.

We believe that through these services and our commitment to our patients we provide the best pharmacy care Durham has to offer. Thank you to all of our patients for being a part of the Central Pharmacy family.
