... that's highly abused, the pharmacy rarely allows for patients too get refills out too soon. I use the pharmacy Walgreens and last filled my med on Oct 9th~2015. I am going away four vacation on the 6th of November. Would I have any poo problem getting my Adderal med on Nov the 5TH or very latest the 6th?
coledylan' First you don't refill this you need a written prescription from the doctor and make sure the doctor is aware and dates the prescription for the 5th of November most Insurance companies well allow a prescription to be filled 4 to 7 days early.The pharmacy well fill it as long as all of this is done.But if your doctor does not put the early date on it they can't fill it until the date on the prescription is due. And make sure you don't go on vacation every other month the doctor and Insurance won't continue to fill it earlier each month.
This all depends. Unless your doctor uses an E-Script service, which is a pretty new technology, they cannot just call Adderall into a pharmacy. You should be prepared to call the doctor's office at least 48 hours prior to when you will need the RX filled (again, this is a policy which some doctors offices insist upon--please check to see if you have a copy of your doctors office policies & if not, please request one be mailed to you or printed out for you to pick up next time you are at the office). Having said that, some doctors are very strict regarding the exact refill date--some will only let you fill it exactly one month (30 days) from your previous script fill when it's a Schedule II medication such as Adderall.
This has happened to me before even being under the same prescribing doctor's care for years... policies can change quickly regarding Schedule II medications in particular it seems, as Schedule II meds are the highest regulated group of drugs able to legally be prescribed by a medical doctor.
Will you be going out of state past the 9th of October? If so, and you run into problems asking for your script early, you can ask if the doctor would be willing to add "Do not fill until November 8th, 2015" remember, since October has 31 days you should be able to fill it on the 8th of November as that will have been 30 days) so this way you can at least pick up the physical scrip before you leave.
