I call in my meds 10 days before they are due. Well it seems we have been having a little (huge to me) problem with getting my meds on time. Called in my luntsta 3 weeks ago and low and behold it still is not here and I am OUT! They should have gotten a request not only from me but too from my Pharmacy as well. They faxed them for a refill on Sat and today is Thur.....I am out of Lunesta and I am not sleeping well so this is really irritating me! Seems strange that they got all the rest of my medications but the Lunestia.

Needed to vent a bit.

Thanks your in pain, restless, not sleeping, messed up friend

Have you tried any over the counter sleep aids? Maybe you can try one of them (I personally use Tylonel Simply Sleep) just until they can get your order in?

Oh geezee had this happen to me once and it was with vicodin. Doctor had increased the amount of vicodin and I ran out early (as pharmacy didn't read it correctly) and went thru forced withdrawal I was not a "happy camper" (metaphor).
Call your doctor and see if he can light a fire (so to speak) under that pharmacy's butt......The thing I hate is my doctor only gives me a months prescription at a time, makes it hard on me to see him every month with co-pays and all.
Sure hope you can get this straightened out soon..
Tc and lots of soft hugz

My Pain Doc is where it is being stalled. I have called them twice to see what happened but no one has called me back yet. I will try the otc sleep aide tonight and see if that helps any.

Thanks all for your support hugsssss

Scarred,
Try the hot tub first! (seriously! - I'll let you have it back!) and relax a bit. You've had a stressful several days in a row, and now with the meds out....I think Red's suggestion is a good one. Can't hurt to try. But add the hot tub and warm milk and anything else that might help!

Hugs,

PaLady
