What Does On Hold Mean At Cvs Pharmacy?

When a prescription is put on hold at CVS, it indicates that the pharmacy does not currently have the required medication in stock and is instead waiting for more to be delivered. You are still able to pick up your medication; all that is required of you is some more waiting time.
