Hi John...Welcome the CP board!....
I'm sorry that this happened to you....There isn't any law about losing a prescription....It's really going to be whether you have a good relationship with your Dr. and nothing like this has before ever happened. Or that you have never failed any drug tests they have given...or tried to fill prescriptions early.
Usually a Dr. with a good relationship will give you a pass and write you another prescription but it will still go in your file...
The key is treating those prescriptions like gold...Have a specific folder that is in your desk with all your other important papers that will prevent this from ever happening again. I do this because I only see my Dr. every 3 months so he writes post dated prescriptions for the following month. I come straight home and put them right in that folder.
So...hopefully you have that good relationship and he trusts that you are telling the truth...
We wish you luck!!
