Ok....so I bought my Abilify last week. Do any of you know where I might have put it? I paid $45 for the co-pay, and to buy a new bottle would cost me $500+! It's the med I went off of, for a bit, last April and ended up in the hospital with depression in May! HELP! shakehead   shocked smhair

Well...for sure it is NOT in the medicine cabinet...that's a given.  Process of elimination, my dear.  Of course try the freezer, then inside one of your slippers (way down to the toe), the glove compartment of the car, and maybe the spice rack.  You simply have to ask yourself 'Where is the last place on earth I would put this' and look there first. yeah   I found the hubby's Lipator in my jewelry box...duh.

Reach out and touch someone. If they don't touch you back it's because you still have brownie batter on your face.

I'm thinking maybe it's still at CVS. Maybe what you thought you picked up from the drug store was fall decorations..if you are anything like me. You meant to ge get the meds but accidentally waled down the fall aisle..said ooh and ahh at a few things and a full cart later and $50 more in debt you went home. So I suggest going back and checking the pharmacy . Heather

Success! It was in the office under a pile of papers. Perfect spot for a bottle of Abilify. Well, it's been missing since the 17th - it's pretty good that I found it by the 23rd. Thanks for your help, guys!

I had a friend, who does not have fibro, clean out her medicine cabinet.  She flushed old pills down the toilet.  nono    BUT, she accidently flushed her three month supply of diabetes meds down the toilet, too!  She had to jump through hoops to get more. 
 
So, stay away from the bathroom with your meds!  tongue

I am having the exact same problem! Apparently i filled my monthly prescriptions on August 3. Well, today I look in my daily pill basket for my scrips to fill my weekly pill containers and i am out of one of my meds. I cheked on line and it said i had indeed filled it, now for the mad dash around the house to look for it. Its not in the usual places, freezer, oven, dog food container, heck for good measure i even checked the medicine cabinet! IT IS NOWHERE!!! luckily they are able to fill it again cause it is within 14 days of renewal, although the lady did look at me like I was crazy!

Oh, I can relate to this!!! I try to be consistent on where my meds are, so they'll always be in that same spot, but I did find my salt shaker in the basket where all my meds are kept...and the drugs were on the stove with the pepper.

yeah....it's not the first time ;-(
