When Should You Go to Urgent Care for Medication?

Roughly 71% of emergency room (ER) visits are better suited for urgent care. By opting to visit northstar urgent care instead of the emergency room, you save time and money. While ER visits can take hours, you’re in and out in an hour or less at northstar urgent care.

What Kind of Urgent Care Conditions Require Prescriptions? 

Depending on your ailment and symptoms, your urgent care physician at northstar urgent care may prescribe medication. For example, if you have an infection that results from bacteria, such as urinary tract infection or strep throat, they will prescribe an antibiotic.


If you have severe allergies, they may suggest an antihistamine or other allergy medication. If you have a rash, they may recommend an anti-itch cream or corticosteroid lotion. If it’s pink eye, they will prescribe eye drops.


Of course, not all conditions require medication. Viral infections need to run their course, and over-the-counter medications can manage their symptoms.

Which Prescriptions Are Available at Urgent Care?

The pharmacy at northstar urgent care carries a limited supply of medications, which are only used to treat urgent care conditions. However, they don't fill maintenance prescriptions or medications for chronic conditions.
