Dr. McBee, the in-office pharmacist, runs the pharmacy and can tell you everything you need to know about your new medication or your new dosage. She answers all of your questions regarding your medication and gives you detailed instructions on how to take it and get the best results from it.

What should I know about refilling a prescription?

There are a few things to consider when refilling a prescription at the Rheumatology Solutions in-office pharmacy. Each time you come in for an appointment, you should bring in all of your medication bottles or a complete list of the medications you take. You should also keep track of the refills you need at the time of your appointment so you can leave the office with your needed medication. 

You may also wish to book your consultations strategically so that you don’t go without your medicines for a few days while you await your appointment. If necessary, the team can provide you with a limited prescription to last you until your next visit. However, you can call ahead and schedule an earlier appointment if there is an available slot with your provider. 

As always, you should book an appointment to report any new or worsening symptoms as you undergo treatment. You should also report any changes or symptoms that could be side effects of a new medication or dosage. The team can adjust your treatment plan if your current medication is ineffective or causes bothersome side effects.
