Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Emergency Refills

Q: Can I give an emergency refill on a weekend if the patient needs it when there are no refills left on the script?

A: Board Rule .1809 allows a pharmacist to give up to a 30 day supply of any drug except a Schedule II controlled substance under these circumstances. You must contact the prescriber or the prescriber's office within 72 hours to notify them of what you have done.
