I will be ok till about
The Head Pharmacist at the Wal-Mart I use said that he might be getting some in on Tuesday but he didn't seem to sure of it though.
As for filling at another pharmacy. Yes, my pain clinic does stipulate that I can only fill at this at pharmacy and it is even written on the script
So, I can't do anything until Monday. I'm going to wait and see if the meds come in before calling my doc.
The folks at the pharmacy did mention that most pain clinics have been switching people to other meds but unfortunately, Oxycodone seems to be the only one that I can tolerate, and at this point that isn't saying too much but I've tried all the other medications.
As for the shortage from what I've read it stems from the recall of the Ethex and Activis brand of medications. Which has left the others with an increased demand which they can not seem to keep up with. Hopefully this does resolve or we all might be in for a difficult time
One bit of good news though, at this point in time it appears that brand name Oxycontin is not affected
