Medical Needs and Medication Supply / Storage - Keep at least one (1) weeks supply of medications or special treatments.
- Those on special treatments where they have to go to a facility such as dialysis patients should contact their provider to establish a plan of action to continue treatment. - If you do not have at least a 30-day supply of your medications, you should contact your provider or pharmacist immediately to find out what steps you can take to obtain an early refill.
