picking up prescription?

Recommended Posts

I had the same problem last time with my stupid pharmacy. This is probably a stupid question, but how do you guys pick up your accutane? Do you just go into the pharmacy, say your name, and wah-la you have it?

My derm said he would call the prescription in on friday. I waited till today to get it, just to be safe. I called my pharmacy and asked if it was ready. My pharmacy said they have no records of filling my prescription. What the heck! This same exact thing happened last time.

I have a small little prescription paper my derm gave me. Can I show that to the pharmacy? It just says what I am supposed to be prescribed and his signature. I don't know if I am supposed to use that or if thats just for my own records..

I guess I'll just have to wait until monday to call my derm's office again.

I think you can show them your prescription paper. Thats what I always bring them when I get any prescription. However, it might be different when it comes to accutane, worth a try though.

Just go up to the drop off line. Take your prescription and tell them u want to fill it. And they will take ur info. Make sure to take your insurance because if they don't have you on record then they probably don't have your insurance. Make sure it is an insurance card for the pharmacy, i use to get people, who handed me insurance cards and they werent the right ones and they would get mad and think i could find out there info without it but that is too much of a hassle. You should have an ipledge card thing. YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS! IF YOU DON'T THEY CANT FILL! Sometimes if the pharmacy techs are nice and smart they will they can do a search for your ipledge number. You will have to wait for the prescription b/c of the type of drug it is and the ipledge thing.

Or just ask them when you go to the drop off line. "My doc called in a prescription,but you said you didn't get it, can you let me know if it is here? If not i have a prescription"

Oh and yes that is legititmate prescription. It should have the docs office or name or something that looks professional at the top and then in the middle it should have accutane written and some other doodle looking stuff, which should be how it is taken. And then his signature.

Does it look like that?

Do you have your ipledge? Take it!

I don't think doctors can call in accutane, he probably accidently said that( The reason why you have a prescription). I have never seen accutane called or faxed in. Everyone came in with it and had to wait.

For any prescription I have ever had, I just drop off the paper with my name, and they tell me the x amount of minutes to come back in. I come back and pay and wah-la! All done. I am pretty sure Accutane would be the same because I have picked up some very strong drugs and it works the same way.
