Hi Dr Russ, I understand. I am traveling and have run out of my medication, I was looking for some ideas for a refill since I am far from home . Any thoughts are appreciated, two heads are better than one. Thanks Teresa

I understand.

If you are in the states, in most states your primary care doctor or other doctor can call in an emergency refill.

You will need to check with a local pharmacy where you are, and if so, call your doctor.

Other possible options:

go to an actual urgent care, not a quick care. Urgent cares have full fledged doctors who can assess your history and give you a temporary prescription. If you have records this will help.

Telemedicine: not likely, almost all of these do not give prescriptions or refills for controlled substances.

Or: call your doctor and see if they will attempt a refill where you are, that way you don't have to deal directly with the pharmacy.

The emergency room if you get in trouble, for example, sleep deprivation. That would be a last resort.

Hope this helps.
