I’M VISITING THE GRAND MARAIS AREA AND FORGOT / RAN OUT OF MY MEDICATIONS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
First, call your health care provider’s office and let them know that you need a “vacation supply” of medications to last until you get home.
Then, your health care provider can send us your prescription through their normal electronic prescribing system. This is the fastest way. Ask them to send it to the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic Pharmacy in Grand Marais, MN.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR PILL BOTTLE
The number of refills you have of your medicine can be found on the bottom left of the prescription label on the pill bottle.
**If you have zero refills or your prescription is expired, please contact the pharmacy and allow 3-4 days for the pharmacy to get a new prescription from your doctor.
In general, one prescription will take 15-20 minutes to fill. The more prescriptions you have the longer it takes to get them ready. Our number one priority to make sure we are filling your prescriptions accurately, appropriately, and safely.
Please remember to pick up your prescriptions within 7 days after requesting them. If you do not pick up your prescription, our pharmacy will return it to the shelves and reimburse your insurance if applicable.
