What a frustration. My Primary doctor prescribes my vicodin, and used to prescribe me ms contin, but she doesn't like to prescribe it, and won't, as of today anyway. It's times like these where I really wonder if this is all worth the trouble. I am so ready to just give up and crawl into bed. ARGHGHHHHH!!!!
I know what I have to do, it's aggravating that people who don't need the med's seem to get them, and then people like us can't seem to get correct management and always get listened to.
It'll get figured out, I've just had to spend all day on the phone with several different clinics, making and rescheduling appointments.
I have a psychiatrist appointment tomorrow morning, the dr who prescribes my effexor and valium, and now our minivan's brakes are shot and only my husband can drive it. It scares me to drive it. Anyway, I called to reschedule, but they won't refill my effexor or valium until I can get in to be seen, which they don't have an opening until the end of December. So I called a clinic near my house to see if they can get me in very soon and prescribe the effexor. Just another annoyance.
