I'm prescribed Adderall and my doctor writes me a script along with a post-dated script to be filled a month apart which I had no problems with before. However, I noticed that the date on my Post-Dated script falls on a weekend. Would the Pharmacy still fill the prescription even though the script is dated for a saturday?
They should. Post dated scripts are illegal though unless they are written with the day they are writtens date and say "do not fill until... (the post date)" To write a future date only is illegal. If he wrote "do not fill until (say) 11/3/12" it shouldnt be a problem. Some Drs offices are open on Saturdays as well so the pharmacist will likely say nothing. A date falling on a Sunday is more suspicious, especially if it just dated for a Sunday. It is more obvious that he didnt write it on a sunday and the pharmacist is more likely to know it wasnt written that day and might reject it. If he writes "do not fill until... " it is perfectly legal to do and you shouldnt have any trouble getting it filled.
