Should I get my entire prescription filled?

New prescriptions

If you are getting a prescription filled that is new to you, and you have no insurance, you should only purchase a weeks worth of the medication to make sure it agrees with you. Pharmacies are not allowed to take back medications once they leave the store, so if you are not sure how you will react to a new drug, don't purchase the entire amount. In most cases you can purchase the remainder later.
