October 6, 2014 – Refill, prescription rules to change for medications containing hydrocodone

Due to recent government regulations, The Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic, P.A. is not able to refill pain medications after clinic hours or on the weekends.

If a same day refill is needed, the clinic needs to know before 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. If a refill is needed before the weekend, the clinic needs to know 24 hours in advance. Certain pain medication refills will require an office visit with the physician.
