Prescription Refills for Medication
Prescription refill requests for medications other than those needed for behavioral or mental health conditions should be requested through your pharmacy and they will contact us directly. Refills can also be taken care of during an office visit.
Prescription Refills for Behavioral or Mental Health Conditions
Patients needing medications for behavioral or mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, and/or mood disorders must be seen every month until the proper medication and dose have been established. Thereafter, patients should be seen at least every 3 months and medications may be prescribed for up to 90 days at a time. Patients need to be seen more frequently if there is a change of dose, a change of medication, or if a medication side effect is suspected. Follow up visits will allow us to monitor the patient’s response to the medication, dose effectiveness and any side effects. One of the follow up visits may coincide with the child’s annual well visit.
Some adolescents, at the provider’s discretion, may be prescribed medications up to 180 days if they have been stable and doing well on their current dose for at least couple of years.
ADHD and mental health prescriptions outside of a visit are highly discouraged, require a request (no form) be sent through Keona with a minimum notice of 5 business days. Outside of a visit, a fee of $20.00 will be due.
