What if I need repeat prescriptions?
If you are on long-term medication the doctor will give you prescriptions to cover an appropriate period of time and advise you when to book a follow up appointment. In certain circumstances, it may be possible to request repeat prescriptions through the doctor’s secretary but there will be a fee for prescriptions issued this way.
What should I do with unused medication?
The safest thing to do with unused medication is to hand it to the pharmacist who can dispose of it appropriately.
