    Prescription Refill

    Advertisements
    I have a prescription that still has some refills left. But we will be PSCing before I'm able to use all of the refills. So can I get the refills at the new duty station? Or would I have to get a whole new prescription from my new DR there?

    In my experience I've had to get a new prescription. I did not have to make a new appointment though, I just put in a telephone consult with my new doctor through the appointment line and they renewed the script.

    If it isn't something that regulated you can probably pick up several months worth before you head out. I refill my son's medicated lotion prescription way in advance so I always have a few bottles on hand if we're traveling, etc.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Ah, I thought that's how it would work. I was referred to a specialist and that's who prescribed this medication. So I'll probably have to be seen and referred and all that stuff. Unless my new pcp will prescribe it, it's worth a shot to check first. Thank you for your help!
