Remembering medications before going on vacation

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

In Chesterfield, Dr. Sheila Clasbey is reminding her patients to pack their medications before heading out on the road.

When patients go on vacation and forget their medications they call doctors offices in a panic, needing immediate attention which the doctor sometimes can't provide.

However, another issue that often arises is that insurance companies will not pay for an early refill to replace lost medications.

Dr. Clasbey recommends that people plan ahead and carry medications in an organized fashion.
