What is a Prescription Refill?
There is a difference between getting your prescription refilled and renewing your prescriptions. Understanding this will help save you a lot of time the next time you need to refill or renew your prescriptions.
When your doctor is writing the prescription for you, then they will decide to include the number of refills and how many you can obtain as well. You can get more medication when your current supply is low or about to run out without visiting your doctor by submitting a prescription for a refill.
Why Do Prescriptions Have to Be Refilled?
A prescription can only be refilled if your doctor has included the number of refills on the bottle. You can see the number of refills you can get on the bottle and each time you refill, this number will reduce so as to keep track of the prescription refills taken.
Your prescription would need to be refilled depending on the illness or condition you are in, if it is a recurring one then your doctor will prescribe the medication with a certain amount of refills on the bottle label.
How Do I Refill My Prescription?
