Would this work?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1 year valtrex prescription (500 mg twice daily) and I went to the dermatologist a couple days ago. He wrote me ANOTHER Valtrex prescription for 500 mg once a day. I would rather stay on my twice daily that my regular doc put me on. But could I maybe go fill the other one at another pharmacy so I can stock pile valtrex because I might not have insurance in the near future? Could I fill 2 different prescriptions of valtrex at 2 places without someone finding out? Is this possible. I know they are kind of picky because they wouldnt let me refill my prescription once because I was taking to many a day and ran out before my prescription said I would. Just a thought.

You could try, but most likely when they submit it to your insurance they won't pay again. That is how my insurance is. No harm in trying though. You have 2 prescriptions, so I'm sure it's really okay if they will pay for it. Having back up on hand is a good idea, IMO.
