January has 31 days, so 31 minus 2 brings you back to January 29th.

I had an appt before my refill date, 3 days before. The refill is for sept 2nd, and my appt I had was august 30th. the pharmacy filled it that very day. Now my next appt is on Sept 27th. will I be able to get it refilled that day or will it be different? I'm very confused and since I have no margin for error, I'm a bit worried.

Any controlled substance medications should only be filled when the medication is due. If you medication is one tablet at night and you get thirty tablets then the prescription is not due for thirty days from the date the last prescription was filled. If you are taking a pill every 6 hours as needed for pain and get sixty tablets it will last 15 days. You do not get your script early because your appointment was earlier than normal. And depending on state specific rules, if your dr give you your script early it may expire before you can fill it. So that is something to look in to. Also they can be filled two days early with tge discretion of the pharmacist only. If you are repeatedly getting your scripts two days early every month then chances are you will eventually be told no more early refills because you should have the two extra tablets from each month left still. This is not a pharmacy singling someone out. The pharmacists license is on the line for every decision they make. They could loose thier career just for filling controlled substances early all the time

No, the refill date is the 28 not 29 if you fill it two days early, as you said the pharmacy allows. Those saying the 29 are not counting the fill date as day one. Mathematically, based on the calendar and personal experience, the fill date, meaning the day it was filled by pharmacy is day one. I cannot understand why this is complicated.
