How long is my prescription or its refills valid if I leave my current doctor?
From the time you end your relationship with your current doctor, you have at most six months to establish a relationship with a new doctor. After that time, your prescription is no longer valid.
Does my pharmacist have to offer me counseling about my prescriptions?
While pharmacists must offer to counsel you on all new prescriptions, they often counsel you about refilled prescriptions only when there's a notable change, such as an alteration to the medication's appearance or packaging. If you should have a question or concern about your refilled prescription, always feel free to ask your pharmacist for advice or explanations.
