I have several refills left of the steroid. If I call the pharmacy to request the same medication in a foam form, will they be able to do this? Or will I need to make yet another dermatologist appointment? Appointments always take two months and this is becoming a problem *now*.
I'm seeking knowledge and/or advice on how to make this request.
Edited cuz I see it's a current script.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the pharmacy can only fill the prescription as written. So if it says X Pill, they have to fill X Pill, not X liquid.

If what your doing isn't working. Then you should ask about biologics for better control. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease and many people find much better control on this type of med rather than dealing with all the creams, lotions, and potions.
This isn't the only derm in the area, but it IS the one with the SHORTEST waiting list. Yay.
Biologics are not an option for me, tush. Believe me, I wish I could.
