I see what you are saying. I'm the same way with my meds.. I don't take as many as prescribed, so I always go past my next refill time, and have meds left when I go to docs and should need new script
. My doc normally just re-writes my script
and shakes his finger at me telling me meds don't do me any good sitting in the bottle.
The problem that I see with getting refills to finish out your prescript
ion is what docs call "stockpiling" meds. Which makes little difference if you don't abuse them, but a pharmacist won't see it that way. With controlled substances, you are only supposed to have the amount on hand, that matches your script
. Like, sixty pills for a twice a day script
. If it's an "as needed" script
, there still should be something on bottle like "one every six hours, as needed", which is what they will base your refills on.
I really doubt you will find a pharmacist to give you all your refills that are due you, close together. There is such close scrutiny now on controlled substances, that doing that would send a red flag up on the pharmacy. If you can't get into doc, you should start to taper now... going cold turkey off Klonopin is a dangerous thing.
I'm not procrastinating----I'm still doing yesterday!!!!
I have no medical training, any medical opinions expressed in my posts are just that....opinions.
