Prescription Refills

Requesting a Prescription Refill

Patients should call their pharmacy unless they need a written prescription. When calling the pharmacy, make sure you are using the right prescription bottle and number, especially if you’ve had a recent change in medication strength or instructions. If in doubt, call the pharmacist to make sure that they select the most recent prescription to refill. The pharmacy will contact the prescribing physician directly to obtain authorization if needed.

Please allow plenty of time when calling your pharmacy for a refill, as it could take up to three business days for your pharmacy to receive authorization from the doctor.  Also, keep in mind that your doctor may want to see you or may require that you complete certain lab tests prior to approving a renewal. This is for your safety. For further information, please click here.
