I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
Which medication you are on?
I am on dextroamphetamine for adhd.
This is a controlled substance.
have you tried the doctor on call?
no i dont believe hes on call like that his office is closed.
So on other doctor covers him on weekends?
Usually that is the norm.
In that case, you need to go to the urgent care with your recent prescription or bottle.
This is possible but has to be in person.
Its a small practice with just one doc as far as I know. this never happens to me im very diligent about not losing meds. I basically wanted to know if the rx would prob have an issue with dispencing the 4 meds i need til my next refill. If i had another way to aquire the info that i need i wouldnt be pay $55 to chat online to find out...and save myself the humiliation an hassle of dealing with a pharmicist. no offence friend.
There will not be any hassle.
you can refill your script 2 days earlier.
Sometimes, however, insurance may not cover and you may have to pay out of pocket for 4 pills.
But this is a common occurrence --should not be a problem as long as you have valid prescription.
i like to arm myself with knowlege...i dont have a valid perscription for 4 meds. i have one for 60 that i cant fill until the tenth.
In that you may still refill your script today in most cases without any problem.
i have no issue payn out of pocket for the 4 thats not an issue for me.
In the worst case scenario, you have to pay out of pocket.
But refilling a prescription will not be a problem.
so they shouldnt be able to refuse me...its never happend before..this isnt a reoccuring problem with me lol please forgive my bad spelling.
No they will not.
2-3 days early is not a problem.
1 week early is.
if they do what do i tell them...?
Explain the situation.
That works usually.
Since you fill from same pharmacy everytime, this should not be a problem.
do i have any legal grounds to back myself up with...i been on these meds for 20 years an have had a good bit of discrimination towards me an unjust hassle.
Yes you do ---you have a genuine reason and you are stable on this medication for long time without any past problems.
and you have a valid prexscription.
please elaborate a bit...my perscription is valid i assure u sir\mam.
You have been on this medication for long time and you filled this med in time before without any incidence.
Losing 4 pills is not unusual.
And this can happen once in a while
That is why this is not an offense.
As long this is not a pattern, this will not be a problem.
I just paid 55 dollars for this I'de like a strait answer please. Can they refuse me or not. are there any legal acts or articles in regards ***** ***** if i get a hassle. I got responsibilities and i depend on these meds as much as i hate it.
No they cannot refuse.
They can contact your doctor to inform the incident like you are trying.
The refusal part comes when you fail a drug screen or you are a repeat offender without valid reason.
A pharmacist cannot refuse a legal prescription by the way.
The pharmacist needs to contact the doctor issuing it in case any question arises regarding its validity.
Ultimately, the doctor issuing the prescription is legally responsible for your care.
ok i understand thank u for ur advice.
Just like a pharmacist cannot write a prescription, he cannot refuse either.
