View Full Version : "Do not fill before ...."/31 days

Hi guys,
My doctor has always post-dated my Dexedrine scripts for 29 days; I know this because I always set an alarm on my phone to pick up my meds on the "do not fill before" date, or 29th day. Never had a problem with insurance, pharmacy, or doctor. For some reason he dated both of my next two future scripts for 31 days. Any idea why he would do that ? And can I fill it on the 29th day as I've been doing for the past few years, or do I have to wait until 31 days as written on the script? No big deal either way, just thought I'd ask. Thanks!!!

31 days. Could have something to do with different days in months.

If it says do not fill cant fill it early. Have you called the office? Most doctor and insurances will give you a day or two leeway. Unless he thinks it has to do with how many days are in a month? I would call the office and see what can be done.
