Walgreens is offering medication advice to help pharmacy patients prepare for hurricane season, which officially started on June 1. Walgreens advises patients to do the following: If you evacuate, get to a safe location first and refill your medication at a pharmacy there. Also take a waterproof bag with your current medication, even if the bottle is empty, since the information on the label will help the pharmacist refill your medicine. Also keep a written record of your current prescriptions in your valuable papers file. Walgreens' patients can register on-line at Walgreens.com and print out their records directly from their patient profile.
