I saw my gynecologist recently, and she asked if I'd like her to write another prescription for my birth control while I was there so I wouldn't need to go back when the first one runs out - especially since it seems that healthcare center is going to be relocating or something and she might not be available for a while. So I agreed, but I don't really know how this works.
My current prescription is for a year's worth of pills, and I'm only about halfway through that. So...what do I do with the new prescription? It's dated August 15th (the date of my appointment), and I can't see anything that says how long it's "good" for or anything along those lines. And the new one is for a year's worth of pills as well. Do I just...hold onto this until my current prescription does run out - and can I get it filled then even though it will be dated six months in the past by then? Or do I bring it to the pharmacy now and...get an extension of sorts on my current prescription?
Thanks to anyone who can explain this to me, I'm pretty well clueless when it comes to prescriptions!
