I finally found a dr that prescribed me something that gives some reliefe, 5mg loratabs 3 xs a day... yet this is not enough on some days to help, I don't want him to take me directly off the only thing that's helped at all in over 7 months but i don't want to run out of my medications either. Any advice or help would be appreciated.
I agree.I don't see any reason why he would not prescribe you 4 a day.Especially since you stated you have been taking this amount for 7 months.Just be truthful,and tell him some days you need to take one every 6 hours.I started off with 3,7.5mg.then 6 months later asked for one more per day.after 3 years,i am prescribed 4,10 mg. per day.You just gradually ask for an increase of one.If you show up for every appointment and bring your bottles.Your Physician and you will build a trust.I hardly ever take 4 a day.But I also never run out of medication.And I don't fret if the office does not have an appointment immediately.And I can call in my refill and wait a few days before I have to pick it up.Good Luck!
