Oh, wow! I didn't realize there are no refills on schedule 2. As everyone but me seems to know, that means monthly trips. There are days when driving is impossible here in the winter.
Thanks, M&G for the link. Since post-dating isn't allowed, we really do have to make monthly visits. That means a couple extra co-pays ($30 for me) and 3 hours gas round trip, lunch on the road, and a whole day lost. (I can't do more than one thing in a day.)
My docs have a notice posted that it takes 24 hours for the script
to be ready for pickup after a call, and Monday after a Friday call. I hope I can make a standing appointment for every month!
I just got a new 3 month Rx to pick up on the 30th. The Sept pick up should be OK, but the one in Oct? Do prescript
ions crossing over the change date (45 days from the 21st I guess) suddenly become unfillable?
the just called-in Rx for my tramadol? That's a 3 month - turning schedule 3, which will require a paper script
. Will I suddenly be told I can't get it and have to make an appointment to get the paper?
On re-reading the law, it does say we can get a 90 day supply. I guess that takes care of going to the office every month.
