You can also purchase common over-the-counter items such as: pain relievers, allergy relievers, nasal sprays, eye drops, and heartburn relievers.
The Pharmacy provides free prescription refill delivery to students and Harvard University Group Health Plan members at the Business School, Law School, and Medical Area clinics.

The HUHS Pharmacy is excited to announce a new initiative called the “Consumer Drug Take-Back" (CDTB) program. The CDTB program is a great way to assist in combating drug misuse, abuse, and diversion while protecting our rivers and streams. The program will provide a convenient way to dispose of unused or expired medications (prescription and over the counter). The receptacle is not designed or set up to accept illegal drugs, needles, thermometers, inhalers, liquids/lotions, aerosol cans, or hydrogen peroxide.
What happens to unused drugs:
The secured CDTB green receptacle will be located at the pharmacy counter. Individuals will have free access to dispose of unused or expired prescription and over the counter medications when the pharmacy is open. The CDTB receptacle is self-service and requires no assistance from pharmacy staff members.
The CDTB receptacle will be available for use starting September 4th, 2018.
