How To Transfer Your Prescriptions From One Pharmacy To Another
To request a transfer of your prescription, you can either call or go in person to the new pharmacy. Provide the new pharmacy with the names of all the drugs, together with the dose information and Rx numbers, that you wish to transfer. Please include the contact information for your existing pharmacy.

What drugs cannot be transferred from one prescription to another?

Medication examples that cannot have their prescriptions transferred include Vicodin (hydrocodone/acetaminophen), Adderall (amphetamine salt combo), Percocet (oxycodone/acetaminophen), Concerta (methylphenidate ER), and Oxycontin (oxycodone ER). These are just a few of the medications that fall into this category.

What do I need to know before switching pharmacies?

In order to proceed with going to the new pharmacy, you will first need to collect information concerning the previous one. Make sure you have the name, actual address, and phone number of the pharmacy on hand. It is imperative that you include the phone number that connects you straight to the pharmacy.
