I got my refill last month on 30th for 25mg then I had an appointment and doc raised me to 50mg and wrote it for the 24th of this month. my pharmacist said I have to wait until the 30th to fill it and use what I have left of old scipt. Can I argue this and how without making a fool of myself.
Yes! you can actually if the doctor has decided he wanted to go ahead and up your dosage he can do that and there is nothing they can do about it but fill it. If they are giving you problems ask the doctor or pharmacist to get in contact with each other and let the doctor call the shots not the pharmacist. They need to just do their job and fill prescriptions and quit acting like they are the doctors. Do not let them run all over you i must advice you though that the pharmacists dont like being shown up so if they start being rude to you or putting you on the back burner, when it comes time to fill your meds again switch pharmacys. You already have enough complications in your life and they dont need to make more for you.
If your doc changes the dosage on a medication, they MUST fill it. I had similar issues with CVS. I get 15 fentanyl patches every month, and they only gave me 10! Ever since I called the manager with this issue, they have treated me like sh*t!!! I go to my PMS every 4 wks., always on Thursday, and all of a sudden, after my "mishap" they REFUSED to fill my percocet until the FOLLOWING Friday! UGH! Who died and made them King? It kills me that these pharmacists play GOD with people's medications. God knows I would NOT take all these meds if I didn't have to! I have since switched to Walgreens and they fill my scripts when they are SUPPOSED TO. I have always had good service with Walgeens. The only reason I didn't use them in the beginning, was because CVS was closer. I will be ever so HAPPY to drive the extra 10 miles to Walgreens from now on! Sorry about the ranting... I just get so angry when people try to abuse their positions and keep people from getting what they need.
On a different note... I don't know what pharmacy you use, but yes, they have to fill this script. Anytime there is a change in the dosage, obviously, the old script is not going to work for you! Even CVS gave me my new script of patches when it was prescribed. I went from 12mcg to 25mcg, and it was a week early, but they still had to fill it. If they still won't, I would definately call your doc, and he will straighten it out for you. God Bless, and I hope you get this worked out. Heather
