January 2008


At this time of the year when we reflect on New Years Resolutions, check out what you would like to have changed in 2007 and try to make small improvements on those items in 2008. The reason most resolutions fail is they are large changes at once rather than small ones in progression.

Some resolutions are set up where the failures in 2007 were and how not to have the same failures at the end of 2008. Others are desires that never happened in 2007 and what needs to be changed to make them happen in 2008. Whatever your resolutions are, the best way is to break them down into steps with realistic time goals.

Best of luck on your resolutions!

The Day In The Life
Of A Refill

Have you ever wondered what happens when you get down to that last pill and need a refill? Here is a brief glimpse into the process.

You call the drugstore and state prescription #1234 needs to be refilled along with your name and phone number. The technician checks and realizes that you have no refills so we either call your doctor or fax the office with a request for your refill.

So the office staff checks to see if there are any reasons this should not be ok'd; such as they haven't seen you in a while and need to make sure this is still the right drug for you and your conditions, or the refill is too early for your dosage instructions. Most offices take refills in the morning and try to contact us back by the end of the business day. In the meantime, we check our stock and reorder medicine based on refilling your prescription. When we get the OK from your doctor (usually that day or the next), then we get your prescription ready for you. If you use insurance, our computer talks to your insurance's computer to figure out your co-pay. Some insurance companies now require your doctor's office to contact them for pre-authorization before their computer will let our computer process your insurance. That is one reason a lot of pharmacies request that you give us at least 48-72 hours to fill your refills.

That's the day in the life of your refills. We'd like to fill your refills. Just give us a call!
