Are We Responsible For Letting Our Dr Know If Our Dr Hasn’t Added Any Refills To Our Prescription And The Prescription Expired?

Are We Responsible For Letting Our Dr Know If Our Dr Hasn’t Added Any Refills To Our Prescription And The Prescription Expired?

I was stuck in a hard place this week. We recently moved, i notified my drs office of change in pharmacies immediately, was not told by the pharmacy that I had to contact my drs until yesterday, and by that time it was five pm. Going on 3 days w/ o medication and drs office said it could take 48hours to fufill request. I disagree that its up to us and pharmacy to let drs know if there isn’t any refills but maybe it’s cause I’m hostile due to being stuck without neuropathy meds.

go online and check pharmacies. the one I have an online account with. The online account tells me what medications i am taking and when i can order them. and I click order and then I can pick the prescriptions up. Only a suggestion. sorry you had to go through this.

Here in our city, in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, if our medication refills are finished, my pharmacy will contact me, and ask us to get the doctor’s office to fax over new refills, or the pharmacy tech asks if they could fax the doctor’s office, but, I am usually on top of my refills. Some doctors want the patient to go to their office to get their medications refilled, just in case he or she has to change anything.

3 days without medication, then wait possibly 2 days more?

I’d call the doctors office & tell them I was coming in for a script, then take it to the new pharmacy. I’d also be concerned about the dependability of the new pharmacy.

I stay on top of mine so, yes, I do. Alot of time, the pharmacy will contact me to say I need a refill and should they contact the dr. Sometimes I say yes, sometimes I do it myself. I could never rely on my doctor to keep track of my meds.

The whole pharmacy and Dr/ patient relationship can be very frustrating. I have mail order through our insurance, ( for my Daily meds) and it's wonderful. Sorry to hear that you went without meds for a while that sucks ! Sending prayers 🙏🙏❤️❤️
