Botta71 28 Jan 2017. Depends on the medication. I have got my Tramadol filled after 27 days and other times at the same pharmacy they said I had to wait 28 days but never more than 28. The only reason I do this is because I see my doctor every 95 days and on the last refill I usually do not get a new one.
Mary. You definay need a new doctor for sure.
If you run out of your meds early, it is best to return to the doctor for a new script and ask him/her to write on the script “okay for early refill.” Most PMD’s may accommodate a one-time request, but likely terminate you as a patient if you continue to request early refills.
If I am prescribed a schedule II on the 1st day of a 30 day month and the physician directs me to take 1 tab PO or orally at 8AM, how many tablets would I have taken in 28 days? Not one pharmacist or employee would reply.
I picked up the med, waited the 3 days & went to pick up my Tramadol refill. They said I couldn't get it for another 4 days. I showed them the that they had sent me saying I could pick it up that day. The pharmacist said that they can't fill it until the bottle was compley empty while taken as prescribed.
However, many companies do monitor reviews on our site. Reviews submitted through "Contact Us" form will not get published on site or forwarded to Walgreens.
Review about: Walgreens Pharmacist.
But Walgreens are now checking back several months to see how early you had it filled and if it was 1 or 2 days early they add them up and make you wait that much longer. I am the only one working. On my 3 days off I do not want to make a trip to the Pharmacy. I have no choice I have to do what I can to support my Family.
I would appreciate your input.Thanks!

The “established quota” for hydrocodone in 2017 is being reduced to 58.4 million prescriptions under the DEA order.
The guidelines have had a chilling effect on many patients and their doctors, who have reduced opioid doses or stopped prescribing them altogether.
With the new changes, prescriptions for tramadol may be refilled up to five times in six months after the date on the prescription. Prescriptions can still be called in, ed, or sent electronically to the pharmacy by your doctor's office as long as the office follows the DEA rules on sending prescriptions by these methods.
