I have a dexedrine prescription that I received a prior authorization on last year for 150 pills every 30 days. The prior authorization has expired and I need a new one. The pharmacy told me they can only fill for 120 pills until the next prior authorization has been approved so my question is can the pharmacy fill the prescription asking for 150 pills for 120 instead or do I need a whole new script asking just for the 120

Hello, Lisa! How are you?

In theory, they should be able to fill for the 120, but some pharmacies won't, so you'll need to ask the pharmacist to be sure how they'll handle it. Since this is a controlled substance, they may require a new prescription.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and anorexia. It also carries the risk of being habit forming.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you so much. I called the pharmacist as you suggested and they said they would fill it so thanks again for your advice.

Actually I do now have another question. So my prior authorization was denied for the first time in 11 years because my doctor didn't use the proper diagnosis. Instead of putting hypersomnia which is what it is for he put major depressive disorder so now we are appealing but my doctor says in the meantime he can write me a script for 30 pills that I can pay for I just would like to know if it's possible to do this if I'm filling a script for 120 thru my insurance at the same time. Thanks again for your help
