Good topic Kaely!...and many of us relate to this! That is one of the reasons that I never stop worrying until I get that hot little script in my hands.
I also use my phone to alert me on refills, and just about everything else for that fact! One thing I do like about the Fentanyl patch is that the downward cycle does not seem so harsh, and will allow me to fudge a little...if I don't have immediate access to them, or the Dr is late signing the script. I believe it stays in your system longer than a BT med.
I do have BT med's, and learned early on that if one can get by, (not easy to do, if your undermedicated to start with)...and save a few, it sure does help in a pinch. ...and I have been pinched before!
So, planning ahead in more than one area, might prove to a real life saver someday.
Good luck to all of us that have those kind of days!
