We are licensed pharmacists and public health professionals with more than 70 years of combined experience in pharmacy practice and global health. In the United States, our experiences cut across pharmacy practices in retail and drug stores, hospitals, and long-term care facilities.
We are here as professionals, to ensure that doing business with us will not only help you navigate on your path to positive health outcomes but allow you to indirectly support underserved communities in the United States and countries around the world.
Drug Information Service: We provide a LIVE Drug Information Service platform, operated by licensed pharmacists responding in real-time (instantly) to your drug-related questions.
Online Pharmacy: We provide an ONLINE PHARMACY (still work in progress), delivering pharmaceutical products and paraphernalia to all our customers.
Health Proposal Development Platform: This platform supports mental health interventions (mainly combating the opioid epidemic) in the United States and Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent health interventions around the world.
This is more than business to us; this is who we are! AskUSPharmacist.com emerged from the need to provide qualitative, patient-driven pharmaceutical care services. Look around in most pharmacies or drug stores, what do you see? 🤔 What you may have experienced and seen is not qualitative pharmaceutical care. We are interested in your overall well-being, which is at the core of EVERY pharmacist!
Ask US Pharmacists are 100% focused on helping you navigate all your medication questions and maximizing your therapeutic outcomes. We are not driven by pharmacy business metrics, we are not overwhelmed with “too many pharmacy activities”, and we are not “too busy” to answer you. We are here to take care of your medication needs “one patient at a time”. Getting your medication information from random sites and social media has shown to be very dangerous. Here you have access to LIVE drug experts providing simple, easy to understand and evidence-based answers tailored to your context. Everybody's therapy is unique.
We are passionate about supporting mental health interventions and safe use of medications. According to a recent CDC report1, an estimated 100,306 Americans died of a drug overdose in 2021 alone; a 29% jump from the previous year. We are focused on factors within the control of prescribers and dispensers to help prevent the tragic deaths of almost 200 individuals every day from an overdose. The annual cost (to you) associated with low optimization of your medications was $528.4 billion, equivalent to 16% of total US health care expenditures in 20162. This cost excludes other negative outcomes associated with pain and suffering.
AskUSPharmacist.com is an online DRUG INFORMATION SERVICE that provides LIVE responses via the chat feature of your account and email communication to patients, healthcare professionals, organizations, and healthcare institutions. It also provides access to condition-medication databases, blogs, weekly newsletters on current and new therapies and so much more.

The ONLINE PHARMACY (still a work in progress) will provide drive-through locations to pick up your medications or deliver them straight to your doorstep following prescriptions sent in by your doctors.

The combination of our live Drug Information Service and online pharmacy will be focused on your specific health care needs and help you navigate your path to positive health outcomes.
Our drive is to deliver qualitative pharmaceutical care to you. To achieve this, we built in Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound (SMART) monitoring and evaluation indicators. As part of our commitment to you, we will conduct periodic impact assessments to determine how well our model works for your specific medication and health needs. The report, along with our tangible improvements, will be shared with our community for general feedback and comments. We will use the feedback you provide to improve, enhance what we do well and reevaluate areas that are lacking.
