Tips for finding and obtaining your medication
Call to see if your drug is in stock. If it isn’t available, you can call different pharmacies in your area to locate the one that has your medication.
Switching pharmacies can be done quickly over the phone.
When talking with your pharmacist, inform them of your lupus diagnosis (or rheumatoid arthritis), they can prioritize your prescription refill over others. Some pharmacies may only allocate 14 day supply at this time, expressing your diagnosis, symptoms, and prevention of flares may allow the pharmacist to override their system.
Of course, stay safe when picking up a prescription. Some pharmacies have drive-throughs (so you may want to call those first) or ask if they are doing free home deliveries.
