Most pharmacies will refill a 30-day prescription 2-days before the refill date. If the doctor writes “do-not-fill until”, the pharmacy's hands are tied and he/she cannot fill the prescription early regardless if you offer to pay cash.

Everything else is whenever you want/whenever insurance will pay. For us, schedule 2's do not get filled early. What this means for us is count to 30 on the calendar beginning with the fill date as #1. Schedule 3-5's are one day early. EDIT: Formatting. February always causes confusion with its 28/29 days. Day #30 is the first day we will fill it. So a prescription filled today (Feb 9), we could fill again on March 10. The pharmacy where I've worked most of the time will fill one day early on controls.

How to stop using unnecessary medications Being overmedicated will not only put a dent in your wallet but can do your health more harm than good.
To avoid having a refill delayed, please follow these guidelines: For a 30-day retail prescription, order a refill when you have no more than a 7-day supply remaining. (For a 30-day mail order prescription, you may order the refill a few days earlier, to ensure you receive the refill before the medication on hand is used.).
Exceptions to this refill policy can be made under certain circumstances. For example, if you are going on vacation, you may request a vacation supply by calling.
If a prescription reflects a change in dosage, it is treated like a new prescription and the look back period starts over from zero. However, if a new prescription is identical to the previous one, the system will continue to look back 180 days to determine if the refill can be approved.
