Straydog... I have a nurse practitioner a few years ago that used to send me to the pharmacy to get demerol that goes into IV. I used to have chronic migranes. I would get the medication bring it to her and she would give me 1 dose but I never saw the other dose. I know she was pocketing it! During the migrane the first time I didn't think of it until the second time I payed attention. She told me she gave me two shots and that being so medicated I might not remember the second one. My sister was there the whole time and I only recieved 1. I told someone in the office my concerns, just say I never seen her in that office the next few years.
