dont you wish your pharmacy would just automatically refill your prescriptions when the time came up? I heard CVS does this too bad we dont have any nearby. I have liek 6 different medications and its really hard to keep track of what I need when i need it

  • I don't have any Rx's that I need refilled on a consistent basis. I have eye drops, but it can vary when I need them filled. I do take care of my hubby's Rx's and he takes 8 different ones a day. It's no problem for me to keep track of what he needs and when they need to be refilled, but I put all his pills in a weekly pill caddy/organizer so when I empty the bottle I know it's time for a refill. And his vary too because some we get 3 months at a time and some only 1 month depending on how expensive it is.

  • I used Express Scripts and get mine in 3 month supplies at a time and that helps me alot. Then, when they are due to be refilled, they automatically drop ship me my next 3 months until its time to renew my script. Then they send me a notice for that.
    All I have to do is have my doc call or fax in my script to them. Same thing with the compound pharmacy where I get my hormones from.
