Often, you can ask the pharmacy to refill the prescription.  If the prescription has run out, they will get in touch with us electronically for approval. It is fast and efficient.  In some cases, you may have to schedule a follow-up visit before a refill is authorized.  It’s always best to request refills a few days before you run out of your medication.
