Here I am, going through this AGAIN. I ordered my repeat prescription (several items) last Thursday, and was told it should be here today. That was already rather later than expected, considering it’s supposed to be something like a 48-hour turnaround, not including weekends - so I would have expected yesterday, at the latest.
Anyway, they have been known to overlook things…
Nothing has shown up yet, so this time, just for peace of mind, I gave them a call to see if I should expect a delivery later.
Can hear a bit of a conflab in the background.
The upshot? “Well yes, we have got a record we’ve ordered it, but there’s nothing back yet, from the surgery.”
I’m now on my last pill of diazepam, and have already been splitting them in half the past two nights to try to make them last. This may be the problem, as I increased the dose myself, and so have been getting through them quicker - which may have prompted a safety check. BUT I came clean with my neuro a couple of weeks ago about what I’d done, and he was perfectly OK with it, and advised me to carry on. Unfortunately, have seen no letter from neuro to GP, showing that he clearly sanctioned this.
Half a pill is no longer working to see me through the night without pain, so I am already undermedicated, compared to what I would be taking if I wasn’t running so short. I’m also very low on paracetamol. Fortunately, I’m still OK with the Baclofen for a few days more, as that one is dangerous to stop suddenly. The diazepam and paracetamol would make for a pretty unpleasant few days, if I were completely without them, but wouldn’t actually be dangerous.
I get so fed up with this, and as I don’t have family or a carer, wonder what will happen to me if I’m ever no longer on-the-ball, and phoning up to chase. My medicine just won’t come, and nobody will do diddly squat about about it, if I don’t.
