Yes it would depend on the pharmacy. If you talking about the medications being mailed to you new location, unless you are in the same state as before the pharmacy would have to have a mail order license in the new state to do that "legally". It gets done all the time but I think if they ever were to bet caught there would be some big fines involved. I know where I live we are only 30 miles from the border of another state and we do not dare mail to our customers in that state because we have no mail order license there.

National chains FTW with prescriptions.

Hi, I take medication for my thyroid on a regular basis and I just moved from Wisconsin to Illinois and I need to transfer my prescription. I don't have refills. I get it accepted by my doctor every month for a refill. Do I need to take it to a doctor down here or can I go to a clinic with the bottle? Oh and by the way I don't have insurance anymore cause my new job doesn't offer it (part-time). Please help this medicine in a necessity.

I would take it into a drugstore, and see if they can call your doctor, and refill your current prescription. If not, then you may have to find a new doctor in your new city, and get a new prescription.

I live in las vegas nevada, and moving to minot north dakota. I'm currently on birth control and I was wondering if I could transffer the rest of the months I have of birth control to minot north dakota? I don't want to miss any and get pregnant

Where were you getting existing Rx filled ?? Mail order or local pharmacy ??

If mail order, you should be able to just do a change of shipping address (what I did when I moved). The current Rx itself is still valid.

If local pharmacy, you will have to ask them if they have same brand stores (Walgreens, CVS, etc) in Minot. If they do, then they can transfer the current Rx. If not, then you may have to get new Rx as soon as you get there. ( or get new Rx from current doc before you leave NV).

Good Luck.

I get a schedule IV medication, tramadol, from a neurologist in Illinois. I want to keep him as my doctor even though I am going to be soon moving to Florida. My script has always been at a Walgreens pharmacy. My question is will the doctor continue to be able to fill my script at the Walgreens here in Illinois and then can I have it transferred each time to a Walgreens in Florida?

The current prescription can be transfered between same pharmacies (Walgreen to Walgreen) but once the maximum refills are completed, you will need a new prescription and I believe your scheduled IV medication now requires a physician visit. So you probably will need to return to Illinois or get a new physician in Florida. You can contact a Walgreen in FL and ask them if they accept out of state prescriptions for Schedule IV medication and ask you doctor if they will write a refill without an office visit. That's probably the best way to get an accurate answer.
