How to fill your Chinese herbal formula at the OCOM Herbal Medicinary

  1. Pay for your herbal prescription at the OCOM Bookstore counter. (Enter from the lobby on the first floor of the OCOM campus.) Custom prescriptions are made to order and are not prepared until payment is received.
  2. Once payment has been made, your prescription is sent to the medicinary. Preparation time varies. Patent products are pre-made and can be ready in minutes. Custom bulk and granule formulas, however, may take 20-45 minutes to prepare, depending on the complexity of the formula and how many prescriptions are being processed at that time. Please allow up to 45 minutes after your appointment if you will be receiving a custom herbal formula (and let us know that you are waiting*). Please note that herbal formulas can only be made when a supervisor is present in the medicinary (please check the medicinary schedule here).
  3. Once your formula is ready, you can pick it up at the medicinary window (inside the bookstore). Ring the bell for assistance, or if you have questions.

*If you are unable to wait, the following options are available:

  • Pick up your formula at the downtown OCOM Herbal Medicinary the next business day. We are happy to run it out to the curb if you call ahead, so you don’t have to park.
  • Priority shipping to your door. We offer this service for the flat rate of $9 to most Oregon locations. Packages typically arrive in 1-3 business days.

Thank you. We look forward to serving you!
