What is a bridge prescription?
When an Amwell physician determines you need a change in medication, but due to either state laws or some other reason prefers not to write a full prescription, he or she may furnish you with a “bridge prescription.” A bridge prescription is an order for a limited supply of medication – usually enough for 15 to 30 days – that will cover your needs until you see your primary care physician and receive a physical examination to determine if the medication is right for you and if a longer-lasting supply is warranted.
