I have been in pain management for just over a year. I had acdf on 08/08/08. Never did get any relief. I see the Dr. every 3 months now. All we do is go over my "symptoms" & he writes out my prescritions for the next 3 months. They work with a pharmacy that will deliver my meds once a month for a $3.00 fee. I took them up on this so I don't misplace the written ones. It has worked out really well, until now. UPS delivers them in a regular UPS box with no identifying sender. I opened this last one & 1 of the prescriptions had the amount that I should have crossed out & 1/2 written in. I called & they said that they ran out & they owe mw the other half. No problem. Then I look at the other bottle. It says 60. I can see that there is no where near 60 in this bottle. I pour them out on my desk & count 24! 24 out of 60. I called back. They insist that the bottle had 60 pills in it when it left the pharmacy. Then they were asking if there was anyone in my home that took them if the delvery box was tampered with & so on. I have talked to the pharmicist several times & they still are telling me all the paper work & poill count is right & I am wrong. I called the Dr. & nobdy has returned my call.
How do you deal with something like this? I have never had anything like this happen before. I am terribly upset. I have never misused my medications & have never had any problem with missing meds.
