If a new prescription is for an expensive drug, purchase the minimum amount that will get you through the initial period to determine whether there will be side effects from the beginning, and whether the drug will work for you - for example, for a few days or a week. You are only charged for the few pills instead of the cost of the entire prescription. You can pick-up the remainder of the prescription at a later date.

Ask your health care provider or pharmacist how long it will be before you'll know if the drug is working, and before side effects usually show up. It could be just a few days or one week or longer.

 NOTE: If you purchase the full amount prescribed and the drug doesn't work, or if there are unreasonable side effects, most states and pharmacies prohibit returning unused prescription drugs.
