My Pharmicist just informed me that my Doctor written scrip for my Estrogen Methyltestos H.S Tab is only good for 6 months. I go annually to my GYN for exam and he gives me a scrip for the above mentioned scrip. I thought he gave me a scrip for one year. Is my Pharmicist right??
Many written prescriptions are only good for six months. He may have written a years supply but if you hung on to the written script, it may no longer be any good after six months. Next time, even if you dont need the refill, drop the script at the pharmacy so they can process it. Had you done this, you would have had a fill waiting for you when you need them. It is best NOT to hang on to a written script for months. Let your pharmacy process it as soon as you get it. Just tell the pharmacist that you dont need a fill right now but you would like the new script processed and kept on file, that way the script will be good for a year. Most scripts, even ones processed by the pharmacy and even if there is still refills, are only good for one year from date the script was written. As Kaismama mentions. call your doctors office and they can call in a new fill for you. I cant imagine why the pharmacy wouldnt just call your Dr for you to get a new order but some pharmacists can be a little lazy or they are just too busy.
