Processing a prescription will often take a couple of hours. Please ensure that you check your app for any new information on your prescription as soon as it becomes available. Patients who specify a particular pharmacy should be aware that it may take up to 48 hours before their medicines are available to be picked up from that pharmacy.
How long does it take to fill a prescription?
Accurately Filling the Prescriptions It is only after a prescription has been subjected to all of these verifications and explanations that a pharmacist will be able to correctly fill a prescription. Providing, of course, that they are permitted to fill it.
To reiterate, a pharmacist is responsible for ensuring that the correct dosage, correct strength, and most crucially, the correct drug is dispensed at all times, including while they are filling prescriptions. The pharmacist will have to input the data of the patient as well as the medications that are filled into the system as part of the process of filling the drug in the bottles.
This will ensure that the records are kept up to date. There is also the issue of how long a prescription is good for after it has been filled.
