Not appropriate for Urgent Care
In more serious situations, such as a stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma, go straight to the nearest emergency room. Other critical conditions include severe abdominal pain; sudden dizziness, weakness, or loss of coordination or balance; sudden blurred vision or loss of vision; deep cuts or bleeding that won’t stop; and loss of consciousness.
Medications available on site to Urgent Care patients
WVU Urgent Care patients can buy 10 commonly prescribed medications at the clinic instead of leaving with a written prescription. A patient can buy one course of the prescribed drugs in stock, which include antibiotics such as amoxicillin and penicillin.
- Each prescription costs $10.
- No billing to insurance companies is done.
- Refills are not available.
Patients are given receipts to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement. Patients who need refills or who may need another medication to treat their illness will need another doctor visit. Urgent Care does not sell prescription narcotics.
NOTE: Medications not available at the Inwood, Spring Mills, Charles Town, and McHenry locations.
