Medication Refills

Clinical Questions

The physicians at France Avenue Family Physicians receive many requests for medication refills from patients and pharmacies.  Here are a few suggestions to make refilling your medications easier:


  • Many long-term medications can be refilled without a new prescription via a telephone call to your pharmacy.  For refills, plan ahead and call your pharmacy one week prior to running out of your medication.  Once you've placed the call, please allow 24 - 48 hours for the process to take place.

  • You can also request a refill using the patient portal.  Sign up today to access your medication refills. 

  • To assure appropriate use and monitoring of your medication, your physician may require that you be seen before a prescription can be refilled.  Therefore, it is important to call for a physician appointment when you have one refill left.

  • Refills that require a physician's authorization will be approved Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm only.  We are unable to respond to refill requests after office hours because your medical record is not available for review at that time. You may pick up approved prescriptions during your pharmacy's hours.

  • Pharmacies offer automatic refill options for long-term medications, which can help you manage your refills. Check with your pharmacy for set up.
