..Thank you Jane!….This has been a bummer of a day for me. Nothing has gone right since late last night….horrible nightmares…hateful people, and then to top it off I went in, to pick up my script
from my Dr and I noticed that while he reduced the patch back down to 25mcg instead of the 50mcg,….he put down for 4patches, which is not enough to get me by until my next appointment. However, I know that the patch only comes in boxes of 5, so I thought it was odd. When I got to the pharmacy, the tech mumbled something to the effect of the count of the script
written, and instead of giving me 4 patches, he gave me 4 boxes of 5! I questioned him about
it, and he assured me that it was correct. NO WAY!…something is not right, my Dr would never do that.
Boy did that ever confuse me! Dr's office is closed and I have enough patches to last me 40days at one per every other day. I hate to call and bother his office, so my wife and I decided to just hang onto them and turn them into him on my next appointment. I even took in the left over 50mcg patches, when I went in to pick up the script
, but the receptionist said the Dr was gone for the day, and said to keep them until my next appointment.
My Dr is going to be hopping mad at the pharmacy tech and here I set wondering just what to do. I originally called in because I felt that the patch was dumping most of it into me all in one day, and to confirm that, my wife and I have checked it at the end of day two, and it is bone dry. (48hrs)
I do think you are correct Jane about
the heat effecting the delivery, but I do not work in a hot environment, and sleep in a rather chilled bedroom at night.
I hope I have not confused anyone here, and I'm sure my buddy Snowbunny is adding all this up. LOL I will be glad when my appointment gets here on the 13th to straighten this mess all out, and get back on a better track.
Maybe tomorrow will be a better day, cause I sure need it.
