The label on your bottle will provide you with the number of refills. In the event that you run out of refills, simply call your gastroenterologist to request a new refill, which may require an appointment.


There are several ways to refill your prescription: 


  • Go to the pharmacy: show them the bottle and ask for a refill. Don’t forget they may need some time to get the order filled and you may have to come back later.


  • Call it in: Simply call the pharmacy in advance, provide them the refill number on the bottle and ask for a refill. Most large pharmacies have a central number you can call any time of the day or night. The voice prompts will lead you through the process.


Pharmacy’s website: Each pharmacy is different but an increasing amount allow you to order directly online but you may still have to pick it up in person.
