When I got home later that day, I called my rheumatologist and left a message letting her know I had been released from my pain contract.
The rheumatologist's office called me back the next day, April 27th, saying the Dr. had called in my new prescription for norco to my pharmacy.
My other 3 prescriptions for Humira, Neurontin, and Arava could be refilled on the 28th, so I called them in, and on Friday afternoon I go to the pharmacy to pick them up. My Humira was all screwed up. The pharmacy received the syringe, not the pen, so they have to call the Dr. to get approval for the pen. I received the other 3, but when I get out to the car, I check the prescriptions and my Norco was horribly wrong. My neurologist had been prescribing 75 pills, 1 pill 3x a day, and they were 325/10. The prescription I received was 60 pills, 325/5mg. When I got home, I call the rheumatologist. I explained to her what had happened. She said that since I picked up the prescription, there was nothing she could do. I said that wouldn't do. I will have to take 6 pills a day to get the same relief as I was from the 3. The nurse says "well, you're going to run out then." I told her to speak with Dr. VanDellen and get back to me to see how we can make this right. All this happened on FRIDAY!
Monday morning, Tammy from Dr. VanDellen's office called. She said she had left a message at Dr. Turk's on Friday and today, and no one had sent her the fax she needs proving that I was released from my pain contract. She said that once she receives that, Dr. VanDellen could refill my prescription in 2 weeks at the correct dose. I called Dr. Turk's office and left an angry message. Tammy called me back later that morning and said she had heard from Dr. Turk's office saying they would send her a fax, but she had not received anything yet. I waited until Tuesday to call Tammy to see if she had received the fax, and she said yes. So, hopefully my medication will finally be right. I guess I will just have to wait to find out.
