Prescription Refills Q&A

What are prescription refills?

Prescription medications are pharmaceuticals that you can only get on your doctor’s recommendation. They write you a prescription that you then bring to your local pharmacy to obtain the drugs. 

These are different from over-the-counter medications, which you can buy at any time without a prescription from a physician.

When you run out of a bottle of prescription medication but you need to take more, you get a prescription refill. Refills ensure that you can take the medication as long as your doctor orders. 

The team at MedPlus Urgent Care provides timely prescription refills so you don’t have a lapse in your treatment while you wait for a renewal. 

Why might I need prescription refills?

There are numerous prescription drugs that you might need to get refilled. You take some prescription medications, like antibiotics, for only a short time and therefore may not require refills or changing dosages. 

Prescription refills are typically only necessary for medications you take in the long-term. You might need prescription refills for medications that treat:

  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Recurrent or chronic infections
  • Chronic pain
  • Postsurgical pain

The team at MedPlus Urgent Care directs your treatment with medications and can change your dosage according to the improvements (or lack of improvements) you report during follow-up visits. 

What should I expect while getting prescription refills?

If you take a prescription medication that needs refills, the team at MedPlus Urgent Care may include a specific number of refills on the label of your medication. Each time you receive a refill, that number goes down. Once it’s nearing zero, you’ll need a prescription renewal to get any more refills. 

During your visits at MedPlus Urgent Care, the team can answer any questions you have about the medication you take. You get another opportunity for questions when you visit the pharmacist to get your medication. 

The team at MedPlus Urgent Care also follows up with you to make sure you’re not experiencing any significant side effects or reactions to your prescription.
