Filling your child’s prescriptions

We only fill prescriptions for patients written by Children’s Mercy doctors. If you would like to get your child’s medicine at a Children’s Mercy pharmacy tell your nurse or doctor and they will send the prescription to the pharmacy electronically. In some cases, they may hand you a printed prescription to bring to the pharmacy.

Your child’s medicine will be available to pick-up for 10 days from the time it is filled. After 7 days you will receive a phone call to remind you to pick it up. After 10 days, your medicine will not be available and you will need to request a new refill.

Your first fill will need to be picked up at the pharmacy so our pharmacists can talk with you and answer all of your questions. Any remaining refills can be delivered to your home, if you’d like.

Refilling prescriptions

For quick and easy prescription refills, download the free RefillPro app available at the App Store and Google Play. Enter the pharmacy phone number and scan the barcode on your medicine bottle.

If you do not have your medicine bottle handy, you can call the pharmacy and request a refill. Refills will be ready for pick-up the next day.

If your doctor did not give refills then we will contact them to send us a prescription for refills. Please allow up to 3 business days for these medications to be ready for pickup.

Transferring prescriptions

We are happy to transfer prescriptions between Children’s Mercy pharmacies. Please call the pharmacy where you would like to pick up your child’s medication to make arrangements.

Tips and Resources

Helping your child take medicine

Swallowing a pill is an important skill for children to learn. Just like any other skill it takes time and practice to master. Child Life Specialists are available to help with tips and pill swallowing techniques (pdf) - Spanish (pdf). If you would like help with teaching your child learn to swallow pills, please call (816) 234-3757.

Safe medication disposal

Below are options and special instructions for disposing of expired, unwanted, or unused medications.

Safe medication storage

  • Always put medications (especially opioids) in a safe and secure place like a locked cabinet, drawer, or box to help protect your children and prevent access from others. Older children and teens can be just as curious as toddlers and may be pressured by friends to take medications in the wrong way or "to get high". 
  • Keep track of how many pills are in each of your medicine bottles or pill packets for all medications in your home, especially those known to be addictive and commonly abused, such as opioids, benzodiazepines, and stimulants. Monitor doses and keep track of refills. 
  • The main source of medications for teens are their friends, the home medicine cabinet or their friends' medicine cabinet - not a drug dealer. Make sure your friends, parents of your teen's friends, neighbors, and relatives - especially grandparents - know the risks and ask them to always monitor the medications in their homes.
