Refills for an expired prescription
In some cases, your pharmacist can re-prescribe a medication for which your original prescription has expired. The nature of the medication will determine for how long your prescription is valid.
You can benefit from these services if you have one of the following conditions:
Last prescription 2 years ago
Last prescription 5 years ago
With your busy lifestyle and schedule, remembering to take your medication may not rank high in your list of priorities. Fortunately, there are tools that can help you keep on track.
Using a weekly, bimonthly or monthly pill-pack can help you organize and take your medication exactly as prescribed. Ask your pharmacist if you can benefit from this service.
If you need to renew your medication every month, have your pharmacist set up automatic renewals, so you don’t forget. Come pick your medication up every time, at the same time during the month.
If you’re on multiple medications or manage your family’s, why not pick them all at once at the pharmacy once a month? Your pharmacist can synchronize your medication renewals at the same date.
Prescription for Medical Supplies
If you have chronic conditions, your pharmacist may prescribe certain medical supplies:
Diabetes: needles, syringes, blood glucose monitor and sensor.
Hypertension: blood pressure monitor.
Respiratory condition: spacer for inhalers.
If your prescription is about to expire and you can’t get to a doctor in time, your pharmacist can extend it.
This ensures your medication therapy is never interrupted and gives you enough time to book an appointment with your healthcare professional.
