    when to refill meds
    Lauralizzie01 posted:
    hey all. ive got a question; how early do you call in refills? as ive said, i started a pm dr last month and he gave me a monthly norco script. it looks like ive got enough to last until a week from sunday. he didnt discuss refills, so im thinking ill call monday or tuesday, to give them lots of time, and in case they have to see me to refill. does that sound reasonable? i dont want to come off as seeking, but just not surei want to push my time either. i know my pc dr asks for 3-5 days

    Back when I was on Norco (generic), I would get a RX with my check up, or call the pharmacy at least one week in advance, and tell the pharmacy exactly when I would run out. They called the doctor. I never had any problems that way.

    But each doctor varies, ask your doctor next time you see him what he would prefer you do.

    Take care, Annette
