It seems like so long since i've been here, but in reality its only been a week or so.  i've been rapid cycling like crazy lately and its driving me up a tree. my refil for my meds are on a hold for a few days, (some kind of mixup at the pharmacy)  which means i will run out (well run out of 2--trazadone and seriquil)  which in turn means no sleep, and (hopefully not) psycotic eppisodes.  i'm just not ready for those at all.  i've finally got a cocktail combo that actually  works (most of the time) and now their screwing with it. confused   i called the pdoc, and he said he wont have samples until monday, so i'm thinkin i have a crazy helluva weekend coming up.  i am so terrified of what might happen!!! mad    i know that since i'm at the library, if anyone posts, i wont get it until tue, but it does help a little that i know you guys would help if you could.  thats why i'm posting this now...maybe someone else might be going thru something similar.

I don't know if you live in the US, but if one pharmacy is out of something, they are obligated to transfer your script to another one, even if it's not a chain of their own.  That's ridiculous!   What if it were some heart meds?  Or diabetic meds!!!  If they DO have it, why is it on "hold"??????  Do they not realize lack of sleep brings on episodes??????IT is a bad idea to go without your meds for two days, you can have slight withdrawl from the trazadone.  Not the Seroquel, but you need that one to stop psychosis.   How irresponsible can they get. mad

they said that it was on hold because of my medical card.  the state put it on hold because they are waiting on a change of address for my MC.  i cant believe that, that's absolutly rediulous.!!  it makes no sence at all.  i about jumped over the counter at the phamasist telling her (and half the store)  that is just not right and that i NEED that medication.  she looked at me like i was a junkie.    then the tears came, and i just had to walk away before i made even more of a scene.  i just pray that i don't have a severe eppisode.....i soooo do not want to end up in the hospital. 

scared to death!!!!!!!

You need to call MC and discuss this with them, I'm not sure how that works, but surely they woulnd't let you go without meds!  I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry I deal with this every day. It's probably something with your insurance. If you are suppose to have insurance, you can pay cash for some of your medicine and be re-imbursed later, when everything is determined with your insurance.

I know it seems cruel, however medications do cost money and there are things in place to provide you with them. I would call the pharmacy or go to a different pharmacy and see what they can work out with you.

I have to deny people medication all the time, but I do offer them options ( i.e. calling doc to switch the meds to something affordable, setting them up with drug compainies to recieve the meds, having them pay cash letting them know their options)

I'm sorry you are having trouble with it but I would call them or another pharamcy to see what you can do about your medicaiton. And I'm sorry if your only option is to pay cash for them and be reimbursed later when things get figured out, but sometimes that's just how it is.

Also if it's a refill too soon because of a medication increase, you need to have your doctor write another prescription.   The pharmacies will not adjust the situation without a new prescription becausee if they get audited by the insurance compainies they will not get paid.

I've also run out of meds. and had to do partial refills with cash. Most pharmacy's will let you do that. Maybe you could just get enough for the weekend.
I hope you get this resolved quickly.
Take care
