Prescriptions

Prescriptions for medications that are taken daily in an ongoing manner are generally written with enough refills to last until your next appointment (or longer in some cases).  Each time you refill your medication, please check to see how many "refills" are left on the prescription.  When the number of refills is zero, then you know it is time to schedule an appointment if you have not done so already.  Please then schedule an appointment at least 1 week before your medication runs out.  Appointments are necessary for patients on medication to ensure the medication is still needed and doing it's job well without significant side effects.

Prescriptions for narcotic pain relievers require an appointment.
