3 Helpful Tips When Transferring Prescriptions to a New Pharmacy, Cincinnati, Ohio

Whether you’re relocating to a new town or want to switch to a different pharmacy, there may come a time when you need to transfer your prescriptions to a new drugstore. With the right planning, the process can be seamless and convenient. Here are a few tips to help you during your prescription transfer.

3 Recommendations to Ensure a Seamless Prescription Transfer to a New Pharmacy

1. Research Your New Pharmacy

pharmacyAvoid having to jumping around to various drugstores by researching pharmacies in your area. You should also take the time to visit a few near your home or workplace. Ask advice from neighbors, colleagues, and your doctor who may have suggestions for you. Before deciding, make sure you’re satisfied with their customer service, ability to provide one-on-one conversations, business hours, and turnaround times.

2. Talk to Your Doctor

If you have an on-going prescription, it’s important to make your doctor aware of your pharmacy change, so refills go the proper location. This way, they can update your record, and you won’t experience any lapses or issues with getting your medication in the proper dosages.

3. Understand Your Prescriptions

Once you initiate the transfer process, your new pharmacy will need to discuss your prescriptions with your previous pharmacist. While both parties should be highly knowledgeable about medications, drug names, and dosages, it’s important for you to know all of this information as well. When you pick up your first order at a new pharmacy, double check that every medication is correct. Also, be advised that certain medications are restricted and may not be available for transfer. If this is the case, talk to your doctor about your options.
