Medications & Prescription Refills

The best way to obtain a prescription refill is to have your pharmacy submit a refill request electronically. You can also request refills through My UNC Chart.

For patient safety and refill accuracy, we do not accept refill requests over the telephone.  All requests must be submitted electronically from your pharmacy, faxed to 919-843-9355 or via My UNC Chart.

Although we usually process requests the same day as received, please allow 2 business days for refill requests to be completed.

Certain medications may require an appointment to assess the ongoing need for the medication.

Please review your need for prescription refills before your visit so your doctor can provide them.  It also helps to bring your medicine bottles to your visit.
