April 20 and i have about 20 left (script is for 30). I was wondering if I should call the pharmacy ( I have Kaiser) and let them know and ask if I can get 10 to hold me over? Or should I wait till the 20 I have left are done then ask
I accidentally knocked about 10 of my vicodins down our sink. I just got the script filled on?

I called Kaiser and they are going to put in an early fill request to the doctor. I hope they OK it. I'm in the process of moving and the sciatica is acting up.

Update, I followed up yesterday (Wed) on it and they filled the entire script again. I got lucky. I will be more careful about where I open the bottle next time
You can talk to the pharmacy and explain, but it is a controlled substance and will be very difficult to get a refill before the scheduled due date. You may have to use what you have left every so judicially making it last the remainder of the script time so you do not run out and end up for a period of time without any. If you have been taking this medication regularly over time, you will have withdrawals if you run out and don't have any. You could talk to the prescribing doctor and see if they can help. At least ask them what schedule to take them on so to not run into the problem of withdrawals.
