Customer Question

OK, this is an unusual situation but I am being 100% honest here. I am an older expectant mother and I take Lexapro 20 mg. qd and I also take another medication TID for back pain (I have had 2 major back surgeries and my stomach is growing and it makes my back act up at times and makes my life miserable because I can't do the things I need to do. I'm worried because I am very close to being out of my medication and it is before the date of my refill. This is something that I have had to take off and on for years. I have been bothered by cramping this whole pregnancy and I don't want anything to happen because I'm aware I am high risk. What do I do? I can't figure out why I am running low. I've been careful with the amount I have taken.

This is Dr. Bonilla, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. What is the medication you take TID? Do you have any other medical conditions? How old are you?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.


You need to talk with your doctor immediately.

You can not get medications on line.

Explain what happened.

Doing anything else can get you blacklisted with the pharmacy and with your doctor.
