Will my doctor just give me a new prescription?

Asked by punkrockworld (960points) May 11th, 2009

2 months ago I went to the doctor and she prescribed 6 months of birthcontrol for the first time. She also gave me a sample, which is one month. My month is about to end and I just realized I must have lost my prescription and I have 12 days left. What’s the best thing to do?
Will the doctor just write me a new prescription or what? Thanks!

If you call and explain the situation, they should give you a new one. You can ask them to call it in to your pharmacy for you, too.

I’m sure they’ll probably just write you another prescription, it’s not like it’s a narcotic. Plus, if you have prescription insurance, you can only get so much birth control every 30 days (usually, depends on your insurance) so its not like you’ll have a surplus of birth control.

If it’s far, ask them to call it into the pharmacy. Just give them the pharmacy number.

Yes they will give u a new one the only thing they wouldnt do that for is a narcotic.

They’ll have no issues with renewing your birth control pills.

Probably, it’s not a narcotic or anything.
