Medication


The duration of a drug prescription will depend on the condition being treated. Acute infections may require treatment for 3 to 14 days while long-term health conditions, like diabetes or hypertension, will require indefinite treatment. Long term medicines are usually written for a 30 day supply with 6 refills. If you have a mail order drug plan, we may need to write a separate prescription for a 90 day supply with refills.
