Get Partial Fill On New Prescriptions

Due to a serious illness, I developed allergy/reactions to various medications, especially prescription drugs. This was costing me a small fortune, as I would fill a script and after 1 or 2 pills have to dispose of the rest because I could not tolerate them. We have no insurance so all scripts were paid in full by us.


My pharmacist finally told me that I could request a partial fill of a couple of pills and if they worked, get the rest and if not cancel the script! This tip has saved me hundreds of dollars. Now I always ask for a partial when getting a new drug script filled.

I had a reaction to a prescription and went back to the pharmacy - they took the medication back and gave me a refund. Check with your pharmacy about their refund policy.
