i dont think it will be a problem. i always filled my scripts 4 or 5 days early because i had a huge fear of running out. would it be possible to take the paper script with you and fill it at a pharmacy in the city your traveling to?

Hi sara, give the pharmacy a call and see what they say. That way you'll know if you need to get authorization from your insurance company. Or maybe they could fill what you'd need while you're away and pick up the rest when you get back if it's an insurance problem. But please give them a call, to set your mind at ease and find out what you'll need to do.
I hope you have a good vacation!

Oh, Provincetown! How fun! Hopefully it'll be good weather, and not much traffic on the way there....

I think you mean #30 suboxone.Pill cost vary in each pharmacy.I pay around 5.00 a pill for 8 mg suboxone.If I were you I would get the price from a few different pharmacies before I fill the script. Good luck on pricing!!
Peace..Bdog

It depends on what state you are in. In most states you can fill class 3 drugs such as Suboxone 5-7 days early. However, It depends on your insurance company. Some insurance companies will not pay for your Rx until the 30 day supply runs out.

So if you want your script filled early you can pay cash and then the pharmacy can fill your Rx 5-7 days early. Your insurance company should reimburse you.

What state do you live in? TN's medicaid pays for Sub and allows a 30 day supply to be filled every 27 days.

Do you mean medicare part D or medicaid
