You are given enough medications until your next appointment. If, due to a postponed appointment or for some other reason, you run out of medication, contact the office 5 business days before you run out. Any patient on benzodiazepine medication (Clonazepam, Lorazepam, Alprazolam, Diazepam, and others), or patients on stimulant medication (Ritalin, Adderall, Vyvanse, Dexedrine, and others) must be seen in the office within 90-days. There will be no exceptions to this policy. All providers are subject to Florida House Bill 21 which addresses dispensing of controlled medications.
Under this same Bill, your doctors must now make an attempt to decrease certain scheduled medications, such as benzodiazepines and opioids to protect the safety of the patient. In 2017, more than 75 thousand Americans died from drug overdoses. Doctors are being fined and can potentially lose their medical license if not adhering to this new Bill.
Please do not have your pharmacist attempt to fax the office as we no longer provide this service. It is your responsibility to contact the office should you need a refill of your medications.
The office does not refill any prescription on Fridays, weekends or holidays.
