What you need to know
Everything you need to know about refills, renewals, and out-of-date medications.
Have you ever been perplexed by the difference between a prescription renewal and a prescription refill? There’s also the issue of expiration. Do medicines have an expiration date, and can expired drugs still be consumed?
Refill vs. Renewal
The most significant distinction between prescription renewals and prescription refills is that with refills, you will automatically receive or request more medicine when your supply runs out. If you require more than one refill of medication and the infection recurs, your doctor may prescribe a drug with a set number of refills. Each time you get a new bottle, the remaining total refills will be displayed.
However, If your doctor prescribes a set quantity of medicine but you use it all up and discover that you require more, or if your prescription bottle states “no refills,” you will need to obtain a prescription renewal.
“Essentially, you’re in command of your refills, and your doctor is in command of your renewals.”
You should not use medications after the expiration date, even if they are still effective. The expiration date is a sign of how well the drug will function and whether it is safe to take.
You may safely discard unused or expired medications at a medication disposal box, ensuring that they do not fall into the hands of the wrong people.
If you dispose of expired medications at home, begin by removing your name and address from the medication label. This will assist to safeguard your privacy and personal information.
