It is strongly recommended that you keep track of your refill dates.
- Check with your pharmacist! They can provide you with short-term prescriptions until the next available (non-urgent) appointment with your doctor.
- If your pharmacist is unable to provide any refills & your doctor’s next available appointment is too far into the future then, in extenuating circumstances, the doctor may provide a short-term 30-day prescription, when waiting for appointments. At that time, you should also book a follow-up to get a longer refill.
Certain prescriptions should only be refilled with your regular doctor (narcotics, sleeping pills, ADHD medication) because they are ‘controlled substances’.
