Hi! I have a doctor that writes me a script for Adderall and Ambien. I've taken my Ambienfor the past 5 years, and Adderall for 1 year. I've taken 10 mgs for years and I especially need it now that I'm taking Adderall. This doctor will only prescribe me 60 days worth of Ambien and wants it to last 90 days. But she dates the advance prescriptions and it's really screwing me up. If it I don't sleep, I'm nuts. So I want to go get a prescription from my old doctor that had been prescribing it to me for years prior. Is there any potential legal issue with that? Do you think that's going to make that doctor upset? I have to see that doctor every 3 months for a refill.
MissyD; Yes you can only get one prescriptions from one doctor so you need the old doctor to take the Ambien back and let that doctor know you got one prescription from the other doctor And have your old doctor call the pharmacy to cancel the other prescription from the new doctor and say that he or she will be the only doctor writing your Ambien prescription from now on. And he may have to let the new doctor know too that they are going to take care of it for you. And to mark that in your chart. Anyway, you can not have the same prescription filled by 2 doctors close or at the same time, this is also a narcotic so you don't want to get yourself or the doctors in trouble.
