How do I refill without you? I want to know.

I had a prescription for zolpidem (Ambien), to be taken on an as-needed basis. I have taken all of them. Can I attempt to refill the prescription through my drugstore's website, requiring permission from the prescribing doctor, or would that be considered drug-seeking and weird and I need to actually go in for an appointment (or possibly just call) if I actually want to get a refill?

I do have fairly unpleasant social anxiety, which makes me incredibly reluctant to make an actual telephone call to my PCP unless this is a really standard situation that everyone is accustomed to which would follow a predictable script, in which case I can handle with a little bit of preparation. I honestly don't know how this sort of situation is handled; thus, the confusion. If I had thought of it, I would have asked when said PCP wrote me a new zopidem script, but naturally, I didn't!
