How far do you need to go, to travel from your home to the pharmacy, to get your medication?

I travel about a distance of 1 km (one way), from my home to the pharmacy, to pick up my prescription.

About the same for me -- 900m, per Google Maps, or 3-4 blocks/1 traffic light.
And it's more-or-less on the way home from my pdoc, which is convenient.

EDIT: BONUS! Just discovered GoogleMaps PacMan! Maybe an April Fools' thing? Pretty cool, though -- turns your streets into a PacMan grid. :cool:

half and hour to get the script but the pharmacy is 2 miles away.

The only pharmacy which reliably stocked dex is about 7miles away
Usually I had to go twice as they normally didn't have a month supply and had to order it. It was on my eat home from work though and I did all my shopping in that supermarket anyway so it wasn't a problem at all.

Now getting the prescription every month was a different matter. Super complicated and too many times the psychiatrist made am error so the pharmacy would reject my prescription :rolleyes:

I live in a suburb so nothing is very far away. About 1 kilo (2/3 mile) to the
pharmacy, and the clinic is just a couple of blocks away from that.

It's in easy walking distance. I think it's about 1000 feet if I walk through the nearby apartment complex (which is actually trespassing), maybe 3000 feet if I go around properly.

I go to the same place for groceries, so sometimes I get them in the same trip.
