How do I request a new prescription?
Requesting a new prescription from your doctor is easy. Patients can typically call or text their telemedicine provider’s phone number to request a new prescription. Some providers require that you set up a follow-up appointment after receiving your first prescription. If you run out before this appointment, you can still call them to request a new prescription. Other providers have an online portal that you can access to request a new prescription. If you’re unsure of how to request a new prescription with your provider, the best option is to give them a call. Once you’ve received your new prescription, you can refill it in the patient portal even if it says no refills as this is based on your previous prescription.
What if I need to change the strength of my prescription?
If you need to change the strength of your prescription, just call the number of your telemedicine provider. Some providers will discuss the available ratios and whether you want to increase or decrease your THC or CBD intake. They will reach out to your physician so they can adjust your prescription accordingly. Other providers require that you schedule a consultation with your physician so they can see which symptoms are being alleviated and what your concerns are. Once again, calling your telemedicine provider’s phone number is the first step to changing the strength of your prescription.
What if I’d like to try a different product or formulation?
There are a variety of products and formulations to try and some may be better suited for you and your needs than others. Sometimes it simply comes down to trying the different products to see which you prefer. Depending on the telemedicine provider, you may be prescribed a specific formulation and product or you may get to choose your formulation and product. If your prescription was written for a specific product and you’d like to try something different, call their number. Some telemedicine providers will inform the physician of the product you’d like to try and add it to your prescription. Other providers require you to schedule a consultation so you can discuss which product or formulation you’d like to try.
