What type of medications/prescriptions do the doctors normally send home with discharging patients if they need to see an MD?
We send them home with a prescription for a 1 month of supply of their current medications. We NEVER send them home with controlled medications of any kind except in our very, very rare patients on suboxone for pain…….about 1-2 per year. So if they require antidepressants, or blood pressure meds, or anti-diabetic meds or whatever we send them with all of their current prescriptions.
