Why is my prescription on hold CVS?

What does a pharmacy order status of “On Hold” mean? Your order has been put on hold because your prescriber requires an appointment before he or she will write a new prescription for you. Please make an appointment with your prescriber so that CareZone Pharmacy can finish transferring your prescriptions.

Similarly, it is asked, what does it mean when a prescription is on hold?

ON HOLD means a prescription was brought in to the pharmacy, but you as a patient may not want to have it filled right away, as you may have supplies remaining from a prior prescription fill (Eg. too soon to fill). Therefore it is put on hold and filed to be filled at a later date.

Likewise, how long can a prescription be placed on hold? A prescription is valid for 6 months from the date on the prescription, unless the medicine prescribed contains a controlled drug. The date on the prescription can be: the date it was signed by the health professional who issued it.

Consequently, how long will CVS hold your prescription?

2 days

What happens if I don't pick up my prescription at CVS?

When a prescription is not picked up it goes back on the shelf, remaining in the Rx vial it was dispensed in. The patient's name is blacked out and the medications exp date is written on the label. It is then ready to be dispensed on another order.
