After we returned from Florida this winter, I called in to our pharmacy for a repeat on a prescription and was advised that the medication I had been taking was on back order and that I would have to ask my doctor to prescribe something different. If this were to happen immediately before we leave for Florida in the fall, is this considered a change in medication and subject to the three-month waiting period before we could travel?

Response :
Ed.: I would try a different pharmacy first, as changing drugs can be a little tricky when your body is used to a particular drug. In any event, all you would have to do is advise Medipac (and perhaps other companies) of the change and you would be fine.
