Get a Repeat Prescription in Australia Regardless of the Day or Time
When it comes to medication, some minor conditions can wait, and some definitely can’t. For some prescriptions, missing any more than a single day can significantly impact your physical or mental health. That much is well known, which is why you’ll often be advised to renew prescriptions ahead of time, especially if your last dose falls on a weekend. Still, we can all be forgetful sometimes. Life happens. And when it does, you don’t want to be stuck without your prescription for several days. For someone with chronic depression, it only takes a couple of missed doses to severely impact your mental health for the next few days at least. For someone on medication which impacts their hormones, a gap in dosages can be uncomfortable and hindering for several days afterwards. It’s simply not worth it.
Thankfully, with Instant Consult, you never need to worry about renewing your prescription repeat on short notice. Our lines are open 7 days a week from 6AM until midnight, so you can download the Instant Consult app and connect with a doctor within 15 minutes any day. Any doctor you speak to will be a fellow of the RAGCP or ACRRM; there’s no higher qualification for GPs in Australia. In other words, you’ll be speaking to someone qualified to understand your medical needs, however specific or unique they might be. That makes it easy to get repeat scripts online.
Lost Prescription Repeat in Australia? No Problem
Of course, once you’ve renewed your scripts online with a doctor through Instant Consult, that is only half the battle. You will still want to get your hands on that prescription as soon as possible. Luckily, we can help you get your prescription several different ways, depending on what’s most convenient for you. If you live somewhere remote and find pickup inconvenient, you can have your prescription delivered through Chemist Warehouse Online; simply mention you’d like to do that during your consult. You can also check here to see if your local pharmacy is one of our nominated ones; if it is, we can send your prescription to them digitally and have your prescription instantly ready for collection. However, most of the time you will be eligible for an escript which is issued to you via txt message or email, where you can present that escript at any pharmacy of your choice. Read Less
