I've had a particularly rough couple of months (fm, mps, kidney stones, you name it) and my NP is working with me trying different meds, dosages, etc. to try and find what helps. Well, I ran out of my xanax 8 days early(this is the first month that I've had them and I only had 30 - 1 each night). I had the nurse call and let the pharmacy know that it was okay for me to go ahead and get them refilled and when I called to see if they were ready, the pharmacy tech told me that I should not have run out early and that the doctor was going to have to change my dosage directions immediately and then proceeded to chew me out for taking so much medicine. I started to just change pharmacies, but I've been with them for a long time and I'm trying to convince myself that maybe she was just having a bad day. That really hurt my feelings though. She made me feel like I had done something wrong just because I actually needed the medicine to help control my pain. Should I change pharmacies, or just send them a letter asking them to try and be understanding while we are experimenting with medications and changes because the stress just makes matter worse? I've actually written the letter and was going to print them out some information describing the condition and symptoms and necessity for random med changes until we find the right combination and also that I have a signed pain contract with my doctor. I was actually having a decent day until that. Why is it necessary for people that don't understand to lash out at us for their own ignorance? I feel like I've been hurt by one of the people that I actually depend on to help me get better. Or am I just approaching this from the wrong angle and taking it all too personally? Thanks for letting me vent. That helped a little bit. Has anyone else ever had this problem?
