These Medications Can Be Refilled Without Coming Into the Office

Most medications work best with consistent use, but waiting for office visits to get refills can hinder that consistency. Luckily, you don’t need to schedule a visit to refill many of your most important prescriptions.

Whether you take medications daily, twice a day, or otherwise, you will run low on a regular basis. Running out of an important prescription medication can increase symptoms and complications of the condition it treats or lead to unwanted consequences like pregnancy. No matter the stakes, the ability to access medication refills when you need them is critical to your well-being. 

Telehealth makes medical care more convenient and accessible to many people throughout the United States. In fact, in 2021, 37% of adults reported using telehealth services of some kind within the past year. Medication refills are one of many services you can get through telehealth to simplify your health care. 

Based in Dacula, Georgia, Virtually Urgent Healthcare can manage your medications remotely. Rolandine Vaughan, PA-C, MPAS, provides electronic visits when you need them and ensures you get your medication refills on time, every time. 

While you can anticipate making an office visit to refill certain medications, like opioid painkillers and many psychiatric medications, you can trust Virtually Urgent Healthcare for remote refills on many other prescriptions. 

Chronic care management made easy

When you have a chronic disease, long-term care can greatly improve your quality of life. For many people with chronic illnesses lasting a year or longer, medications are a key tool for managing their symptoms. 

From Virtually Urgent Healthcare, you can quickly and easily refill your medications for a chronic disease to avoid the potential complications of missing a dose. You can trust the practice for office visit-free refills on important prescriptions for:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Gastritis
  • Asthma
  • Thyroid disease

You can check in with Rolandine intermittently with remote visits. During these virtual appointments, you may update her on how well your medications are working and adjust them if necessary. 

Keep up with your contraceptives

Contraceptives, or birth control, are another class of medication that needs to be taken daily to be effective. While contraceptives are sometimes prescribed to treat polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and other conditions, their primary purpose is preventing pregnancies. 

You don’t need to go out of your way to visit your gynecologist’s or primary care provider’s office every time you need a refill on birth control pills. Instead, you can trust Virtually Urgent Healthcare to manage the medication remotely and to reliably refill your prescription. 

Refills versus renewals

As a final note, you should be aware that prescription refills and prescription renewals aren’t the same. You must schedule a renewal appointment once you’ve run out of prescribed refills of your medication. This may involve setting up a virtual telehealth visit with Virtually Urgent Healthcare or visiting your prescribing physician in person.
