Do I receive any repeats on my prescription?

Do I receive any repeats on my prescription?

Repeats are always at the discretion of the reviewing doctor. It is possible to request repeats using our service, however, Doctors on Demand has no influence over the approval of your prescription request, or the number of repeats issued. The consulting doctor is given the discretion to act according to their professional judgement considering each patient’s best interests and the limitations of an online consultation. If you would like to discuss your request for repeats, you can book a video consult appointment. We have a doctor available 24/7 for video consultation appointments.

If you receive an electronic prescription with repeats, a new SMS or email will be sent to you when you get your medicine from the pharmacy.

If you asked for your prescription to be sent to your preferred local pharmacy, the hardcopy will be posted within seven days and the pharmacist will be able to dispense your repeats when the hardcopy is received. We encourage you to take advantage of our electronic prescription option.

Unfortunately, our partner pharmacies cannot provide refunds on prescription medicines as legislation prohibits their return once they have been dispensed. This is due to State health regulations stipulating general medicines and prescriptions, including any preparation that is taken orally cannot be returned or refunded. Once the product has left the pharmacy, the storage conditions of the product cannot be guaranteed, and it is possible the product could be tampered with.
