Addressing symptoms of certain chronic illnesses may require the use of medication. Similar to your mental health and lifestyle habits, taking your medication at the proper time is something that needs to be paid attention to. At Compassion Medical Wellness Centre, we like to approach the health of our patients from every aspect to ensure their long-term health and happiness. Along with providing support, medical advice, and consultations, we also provide prescription renewals to those in need of help.
Difference Between Prescription Renewals and Refills
A medication refill and a prescription renewal are often used interchangeably. However, refills are actually provided by your doctor for a single prescription. Based on your specific illness, your doctor may write a prescription for a certain number of refills. Once these refills run out, you may be eligible for prescription renewals based on the state of your health. This will require a visit to your doctor for an evaluation as well as lab testing in some cases. At our Edmonton office, we provide our patients with the comprehensive treatments they need to both identify and address their illnesses.
What To do If a Prescription Is Expired
If your prescription medication is expired, it is important to dispose of it properly. For a refill or new prescription, we welcome you to schedule an appointment with our team for a consultation. During your visit, we will evaluate your medical history, ask you a series of questions, and run some tests if needed. Afterward, we may renew your prescription depending on your health status.
