Refilling medications

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay has tips on refilling your medications.

It's never good to run out of your medication and often times it tends to happen at the inopportune moment.

Have your doctor refill your medications for a long time at your doctor's visits. Many medications can be authorized for 6-12 months at a time.

Do not wait until you are down to your last pill before making the call for a refill.
