Morons.
Sorry, I am so positive, but my new doc increased my maintenence dose from 150mg EffexorXR to 187.5mg(which of course is not a dosage pill). So what does the pharm do? Take FIVE caspules every dayin the morning! mad
Noooooo, they couldnt just give me 150 plus 37.5 so I take 2 pills(they equal the same dose, duh)
So, I am being a good sport, its only for a couple weks till I get on a normal, actual dose. Then what, Take 17 of the tongue
Thanks for tolerating my neverending sarcastic rants!

I know what you mean Sharann i've been in similar situations! I agree they are stupid!! I use to be a Pharmacy tech.All they had to do is call the doctor to get the actual dosage.Or either just changed it them selves since they knew it was an error! It would have been against the law or anything!!

I hope they get it straightened out for you sweety,sounds like they've really frustrated you.Like I said i know how you feel.I've been on both sides of the fence.When i was a pharmacy tech i hated dealing with medication dosages and insurance!!! It can all be so confusing and frustrating.Hang in there it wil get better! (smile)

Sharan

Perhaps the Pharmacy did not have the meds in the doses you wanted......I have had lots of snafus with the Pharmacy and with the Docs.  All Rx are being faxed to the pharmacy now so you don't see the script.  When you get to the Pharm one of your meds is missing because the Dr. missed it......oh my.  So home you go, call the clinic and have to go through the process again.

And I thought my life was dull.................lol
Take care and keep posting.

Hiya,
No, they don't come in 187.5mg dose but they do come in 37.5mg, 75mg, 150mg. So they had the 150 plus the 37.5mg to =my dose. They just used the 37's cuz they said it cost them less.
I am ok swallowing pills, they are small caps, I am just annoyed at the whole thing because it is so ridiculous that we cannot just have ONE version whichj costs the same no matter what with no generic, and no competition of companies. We should get what the doc orders.
Thats my super duper rant of the day!
Hugs all, stay relaxed, like I am trying to do.
OMMMMMMMMMM,,,,,,,
