If you have been prescribed medication by one of our psychiatrists it is important that you not run out or stop abruptly without consultation. Be sure to monitor your supply of medication closely to allow plenty of time for prescriptions to be refilled. In many cases, your psychiatrist will want to see you for a medication check prior to refilling. This will have been discussed with you by your psychiatrist. Make sure you have follow-up visits scheduled prior to running out of medication. To see if you can obtain a refill prior to being seen by your psychiatrist follow these steps:
- Call you pharmacy when you are getting low on medication before you run out.
- Have your prescription bottle in hand when you call the pharmacy for your refill so you can supply all the necessary information.
- The pharmacy will notify you if you have refills remaining on your prescription. If there are no refills remaining, they will submit a request to our office.
- Your psychiatrist will review your chart within 1-2 days to determine if they can provide you a refill prior to your next follow up appointment. You may be required to make a follow up appointment before any additional refills are authorized. If needed, someone from our office will contact you to schedule.
Please note: Refill requests are only processed Monday – Friday and can take up to three (3) days to complete.
