UUGGHH! Another early bird! Hubby is usually up by 4am too. Actually, I'm shocked that he's still asleep!
I highly recommend finding the info about the state laws and bringing that. I never asked if I could come every 2 months. Instead, I asked for the scripts to be written for 60 days because that's what my mail in program requires. When I was told that it was illegal for them to write more than 30 days, I pulled out the papers and showed them that they were wrong. A 90 day supply is acceptable for mail ins. I left with my scripts.
I'd also make sure that you get a separate script for 10 to 14 days while the mail in program processes your meds, or make your appt early enough that you won't run out while waiting for the shipment. For narcotics, the actual script must be mailed to them. Then they have to fill it and mail the pills back. Luckily, the mailing back part is quick because they all use overnight shipping for narcotics to ensure a signature upon delivery.
I now keep order forms & envelopes in my pocketbook. When I get my narc scripts, I can drop them in the mail on the way home. If I am prescribed something else, like neurontin, I can tape the script to the form and have the secretary run it through the fax.
OK, I'm off to see if I can catch a few winks before we head off to the MILs for the weekend. Sigh. She's not my favorite person, but I am looking forward to seeing my nieces and nephews. Be well!
