You can say that again! I nearly faint every time I get my perscription filled. And it gets more expensive as you increase the dosage.
It took awhile for my doctor and pharmacy to work out the prescription problem. They weren’t happy with the way that he was writing them at first, I think because it wasn’t clear that I could only get 30 at a time. And then he told me to increase my dosage, but didn’t provide me with a new script, which I didn’t notice at the time, and I had to call the office and try to explain to them that he had to fax a new script to the pharmacy before I ran out. Then he messed it up completely when he increased it to 80 mg but only gave me a script for 20 mg, assuming that they would just fill that and the previous one for 60 mg….
So in short, it really depends on the doctor, and how much experience they have. And yeah, there are probably a few here in Canada who try to do the monthly appointment thing to make extra money too. The difference is, they can get caught here, if they have enough unnecessary appointments for it to become suspicious. My doctor usually schedules an appointment every 3 months, because I am still struggling to figure out what works for me. If I get to the point where I am more stable and the meds seem to be helping, then he’ll drop it to twice a year probably (going by past experience).REPORT ABUSE
