Sometimes you may want to have a prescription refilled at a pharmacy other than the one where you originally purchased it. There may be several reasons for this. You could have moved to a new neighborhood or new town. You've shopped around and found a place that sells the same product less expensively. Perhaps you're not satisfied with the quality of service you're getting at a particular pharmacy and wish to try another one. You're traveling, and you need to have a prescription refilled while you're out of town. Perhaps your insurance company has a special relationship with a certain drug store chain. In each of these cases, it will be necessary to transfer your prescription to another pharmacy. If the new pharmacy is part of the same chain, the pharmacist can probably retrieve the prescription for their computer system. If not, either the original pharmacy may have to be called, or you may have to bring in the original prescription or the medication. Make sure you also let your doctor's office staff know that you've changed pharmacies, so any future prescriptions can be called in to the correct pharmacy. If you need the prescription transferred to another state, be sure to check whether it's legal to transfer your prescription, or if you'll have to get a doctor licensed in that state to issue you a new one.
