DynQuest Pharmacy, an independent specialty pharmacy located in Fairfax, Virginia


Are your medications cheaper or more expensive than if I went to a retail pharmacy (i.e. Eckerd’s, CVS, Wal-Mart)?
Most of our medications are cheaper than a retail pharmacy if you don't have an insurance plan with prescription co-pay. Due to low overhead and contract pricing we can offer medications and over the counter products at a reduced rate. If you have an insurance plan with prescription co-pay please ask our price for your medication and compare it with your insurance co-pay price. You will need to know your prescription co-pay for brand and generic in order to compare prices. We do not accept all insurance plans for medications. If your insurance plan is one we do accept, you will pay your standard copay or the actual "cash" price of the medicine, whichever is cheaper.
What Prescriptions and Over the Counter Medicines do you carry?
We carry a wide range of prescription and over the counter items. For questions concerning prescription or over the counter items we carry, please call to speak with our pharmacist.
What does "Rx" stand for?
"Rx" or "Rx" is the symbol for a medical prescription.
What is a prescription?
A medical prescription is an order (usually in written form) by a qualified health care professional to a pharmacist for a medicine to be provided to their patient. A prescription is a legal document, which not only instructs in the preparation and provision of the medicine or device, but indicates the prescriber takes responsibility for the clinical care of the patient and the outcomes that may or may not be achieved.
What is compounding?
Compounding is the process of mixing drugs by a pharmacist to fit the unique needs of a patient. For example, a patient allergic to the dyes used in a pill can obtain a doctor’s prescription for the necessary medicine to be compounded without the offending dye. Compounded medicines (called "compounds") are custom-formulated to provide an alternative when commercially prepared medicines do not address your specific needs.
What is the difference between a regular pharmacy and a compounding pharmacy?
Regular pharmacies only offer medications already mass-produced on the market. Compounding pharmacies like ours; specialize in making custom-tailored drugs, in addition to offering the same non-compounded and over-the-counter drugs that patients can obtain from regular pharmacies.
Why would I need a compounded preparation?
The medication you need is not produced commercially To tailor the dosage of your medication To provide an altered method of chemical delivery To avoid allergies to ingredients found in non-compounded drugs We can compound any item in any dosage form customized to your individual needs such as: Balm, Capsule, Cream, Gummibears, Gels, Organo-Lecithin gel, Transdermal Gels, Liquid, Lip Balm, Lollipop, Lozenges, Popsicle, Suppository, and Sprays.
