When you were little, you probably couldn’t wait to be a grown-up. Now, adulting isn’t as fun as many people envisioned, especially when it involves scrambling around to accomplish things at the last minute.

NowRx aims to help people avoid that situation by delivering prescriptions to your door in one hour. Your doctor sends in the documentation, and you’ll get billed for the proper amount to the card on file.
