Please note: This information is for general reference only. Your clinician will review your symptoms and health history to determine which (if any) hyperlipidemia treatments are medically appropriate.
Why is it important to keep taking my high cholesterol medication?
Stopping a medication should be an informed decision that you make with the approval of a doctor, especially when it's a medication like a statin that can lower your risk of heart attack and stroke.

Even if you become pregnant, experience drug side effects, or make enough lifestyle changes to lower your LDL cholesterol naturally, you still need to talk to a trusted primary care physician (PCP) or cardiologist before discontinuing. They may want to lower your dose or put you on a different medication to keep your arteries healthy.
Can I get my cholesterol levels checked through Amazon Clinic?
No. Cholesterol level testing (called "lipid panels," "cholesterol panels," or "cholesterol labs") isn't available through Amazon Clinic at this time.
What's the difference between a renewal and a refill?
When you run out of your medication, you refill it through a pharmacy. When you run out of refills, a licensed clinician has to renew your prescription.

You can request a remote prescription renewal through Amazon Clinic. Your clinician will send any new prescriptions to a U.S. pharmacy of your choice. You pay for the medication when you pick it up or have it delivered.
What's the prescription renewal policy at Amazon Clinic?
Depending on the online clinic, a prescription renewal may be for a 30- or 90-day supply of medication. A prescription may also include one or more refills.

Clinicians consider many factors when determining if a prescription is medically appropriate. For example, they may want to know how long it's been since you've:
• Taken your medication
• Seen your primary care physician (PCP)
• Had appropriate lab testing
• Had your last prescription renewal through Amazon Clinic*
*Prescription renewals may be limited to one or two within a 12-month period.
