So I went to the drs monday am as i was sure i had a kidney infection. He was also sure and gave me a perscription for antibiotics. In the mean time he has sent my sample off to the lab to be tested. So I got my antib’s and have been taking them. Then today he phones me - lab results are in. I have the wrong tablets - so he has said I need to stop taking them and go and get this new perscription for new tablets.
The thing is - can I not just swap the tablets? I know its only £8 but its £8 quid I wont have until next week when I get paid. I couldnt say this to him tho as it is embarrassing not being able to afford £8!!! I know I need these new ones as the ones I have are defo not working. I still have a lot of pain and am barely passing any urine (with or without catheter). I am not moaning he gave me the wrong ones - I think he gave me a fairly generic one to try and see me through until they knew exactly the ones I needed which I apprecaite was the best thing to do.
Or do you think maybe wait until pay day to get the new ones and take these ones in the meantime? Or is that stupid?
Thanks in advance.
(Anon because I am still embarrassed about not having £8!)
