Routine or Daily Medications: We need to see any patient with a chronic medical condition requiring medication in our office at least annually. While your child is having their routine well child checks, please ask your provider for any refills that you think they might need for allergy medications, asthma meds, etc. Depending upon the severity of your child’s asthma we may need to see them every 3-6 months rather than annually. For all children on antidepressant or anti-anxiety medications, we need to see them at a minimum of every 6 months. If you need a prescription refill and haven’t been seen within a year, please contact our centralized appointment line at 651-256-6714 to make an appointment. If your child is having routine well child exams annually and you need a refill on a medication please call your pharmacy and ask them to fax a prescription refill request to your provider. Because the doctors’ change offices regularly, refill requests from the pharmacy may take up to 1 week to catch up to your provider. Our on-call providers cannot refill prescriptions after hours based on the fact that they often do not have access to your child’s chart. All refill requests after hours will be declined.
Stimulant Medications: There are special circumstances that surround medications used in the the treatment of ADD/ADHD. These medications are very closely monitored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Children need to be seen at least every 6 months while on these medications, more frequently during periods of dosing adjustment. Please call the refill line at 651-256-6796. Please allow 48 hours for turn-around
