I also go every 30 days for my Rx's. (All of them actually).
And my doc has done the same thing, but as long as I'm paying attention, and as long as we communicate and she double checks before sending me out the door, (and even then)* it works out.
*Even if she sends me out the door, the front desk has the sheet indicating Rx's were given and they double check with me.
But with the advent of printed Rx's and not writing them on a script pad, I can see where it can sometimes be confusing. We're in one room as she prints them out in another room down the hall and has to go retrieve them....
It is a pain in the patootie no doubt, but as you mentioned, they're precious gold in our hot little hands, and it does everyone a favour to be vigilant.
Great news!! Happy days ahead.
