Prescription Refills

Prescription Refills

Once you have established care with a psychiatric provider within WELLWVU there are two ways you can request prescription refills: MyWVUChart and calling our office.

MyWVUChart allows you to contact your psychiatric provider electronically through the Electronic Health Record. In order to access this you must first pre-register by calling 304-598-4998 or 800-324-1468. 

Once you have pre-registered you can set up access to MyWVUChart at https://mywvuchart.com. You will also be able to access your WELLWVU general medical provider using MyWVUChart.

You can also call our office at (304) 293-4431 to leave a message with your psychiatric provider. Please be sure to have your medication name, dosage, and pharmacy information ready. Your provider may call you back to clarify your request.

For some prescription refills, your provider may request that you schedule a return visit prior to authorizing a refill in order to provide appropriate clinical care. Please allow three working days for your provider to respond to your requests.

Some prescriptions such as Adderall can only be issued by a written prescription and cannot be phoned in or sent electronically to the pharmacy.

Stimulant Prescriptions

Stimulant prescriptions (Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvanse, and others) are Schedule II medications as designated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. This group of medications requires prescribers to follow more strict rules than with other prescription medications and is tracked accordingly. 

Although this group of medications may offer clinical benefit with some psychiatric disorders, the group as a whole has a higher abuse potential including the inappropriate distribution of the medication. Selling or giving your stimulant medication to another person may be associated with serious health and legal consequences.

If you think you or someone else may medically benefit from a stimulant medication, please seek an initial evaluation in our WELLWVU MindFit clinic or appropriate health care provider.
