I don"t know if this has happened to anyone else. My doctor tried me on Oxycontin 40 mg twice a day, to see how it would work. He gave me 2 prescriptions. The first prescription was for 10 days - 20 pills, 1 pill, twice a day. I used that and had the next prescription filled. The next prescription was for 60 pills - 2 pills a day, 30 day's worth. This bottle was the only bottle of pain medication I ever received that did not have the number circled and the pharmacist initials on it. Usually, there are 2 initials on my bottles. Although the bottle said there were 60 in the bottle, after taking them for some time, I realized, it was about 18/20 pills short. I think the pharmacy (CVS) made a mistake and included the first prescription in my second prescription or something else???
My husband just returned from the pharmacy. They said the NEW pharmacist Nora, does not sign her count. They are not sure what she does??? Her inventory the night she filled my script was correct. They are willing to tell the doctor that in 6 years, I have never been short on my medications or had any evidence of drug abuse. I don't know what to think. This is a new pain doctor and I just signed the contract. The doctor had wanted to increase the medication the last visit and I said no. I called for an appointment for tomorrow for increased pain. I hate having to take medication. This sucks. This has never happened to me before. I am so depressed with having to be on medication and my pain is getting uncontrollable. I am hoping I can get some injections.
Take care and God Bless,
