Why would a surgeon prescribe pain medication the day before? Also, why would you not have time to fill it tomorrow if he will be off for surgery?
I am just curious.
Well - you dont even say where you are and your profile isnt filled in either.......... Walgreens will have 24 hour stores and service usually - as will WalMart. Walgreens will work with you usually .... put it on their net and then you can pick it up anytime at any store............. Good luck with everything ......
I have never heard of a Doctor giving a prescription before and dating it differently. Sounds strange. No pharmacy will fill it before the date, however anything after midnight would be considered ok. After my surgery my husband went to the pharmacy 4 me. You should be able to go while he is recovering.
I have heard of this many times. They do that for out patient surgery.
CVS has 24 hour stores too.
They do, do this all the time...and yes you can get it filled after mid-night..my daughter got her script the day a week before her surgery and i filled the day before..it was dated a day later..i just explained the sit..to them, they called the nurse and she okayed it...good luck...hop all is well with the surgery...
I have also had this done by my doctor day before surgery...When i went to do my pre-op, blood work , etc, they had all presciptions already made...pain meds, antibiotics, etc...I have never had trouble filling them either....I would say if they give you problems then wait until after midnight and go to walgreens...That is the only 24 hour one i know of..
Like cathy said, they usally call the doctors office, and they ok it, because you are (hubby) is having surgery the next day...
