Boy do I have an update. A couple of weeks ago, I called to get my Fentanyl patch refilled. They send them to the pharmacy. The pharmacy says they got the patch, but not the oxycodone, so I called the doctor's office. The head nurse called me, and said that they were both put in the envelope, because she was the one that mailed them off. I said ok. I called the pharmacy, and they told me again that the oxycodone wasn't in there. They told me I had to come and pick the new scripts up at their pharmacy there in the building. I never picked it up, because I didn't have a way to. I took what I had here at home. I don't always take the 2 that I'm allowed, so I had some.
Well, it turns out that my doctor and here assistant were on vacation, and the one that wrote my Fentanyl patch script only wrote for 5 for two weeks. I said ok. That will work.
Now come to two weeks later. I called last Wednesday I think it was to get more patches.. I called yesterday to see if the pharmacy had the scripts, and they didn't, so I said ok. Today I called again, and the lady told me the oxycodone was there, but not the Fentanyl patches. I was like oh boy, here we go again. I called the doctor's office, and was put on hold. The receptionist told me that the nurse put them both in the envelope. She said they would do what they can on their end. By this time, I'm really angry. I called the pharmacy, and the lady that answered said " Well, your doctor can call us", and hung up. Then I was really mad. I called the doctor's office after I had calmed down a bit. The receptionist told me the nurse called, and they found the script.
I'm really relieved to have my patches now, but I'm still ready to ask the pharmacist if they really know what they're doing. Whew, what a day.
I don't have any appointments this week. I hope everyone is having a low pain day.
love and hugs
