Prescription Medications After Surgery

Your child may need medication after surgery, which your provider will prescribe. In some medical or clinical facilities, the provider’s order for the medication can be filled by its pharmacy. In other cases, your provider may give you the written prescription or call in the prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. 
When medications are required for your child, it’s always important to follow your provider’s instructions. If you have any questions about possible side effects or unusual drug interactions, it’s a good idea to talk with the pharmacist or contact your child’s provider.
