Newbie (2/9)



  1. I don't know what to do. I have anxiety / panic attacks and after YEARS of experimenting with a mega-list of different medications, eventually settled on Clonazepam ( 1 mg x 2 a day ) and Propanolol ( 80 mg x 2 day ) . I have been on that regiment for many years and it works. I have had a few hiccups with MD's in the past and FINALLY found a great doctor that wasn't afraid to prescribe the Clonazepam. I grew to trust this man and was able to progress in other areas of my health w/o worrying about my medication. But...he retired. I called numerous 'local' Doctors and NONE would prescribe Clonazepam. Unfortunately, a lot of them are all part of the same ( small town ) Hospital network. So one 'administrative' rule covers them all. I found one MD that, after discussing my issues with him, agreed to accept me as a patient. He is 40 miles away, but that's somewhat OK. Not good for the anxiety, but, a necessary evil. The Doctor is extremely smart, and has a huge list of accomplishments. And he is the Director of the medical facility where I go to see him. It was after a few months, this man turned out to be unstable. He has even screamed in my face. He called and apologized later, but, whew, never know what I'm going to get with this guy. The main problem really, is he uses my medication as a tool of his instability against me. For such a smart guy, he really is child-like emotionally. He will either renew the refills on time, or holds back causing me to run out. I addressed this issue with him and he said, oh, sorry, and told me to call my requests in 7 days early. I did, his nurse booted my request out of the system. She said it was too early. She said to call in my request the same day it runs out. I told her it wouldn't work, the pharmacy requests 3 days to fill a prescription. But...I did it, and sure enough ran out. In talking to the MDs office, they said next time to call my request in earlier. So...it has been going on like that every time my refill comes due. I either call to early or to late, depending whomever I talk too. asked the Doctor about it and he just said everybody was correct. Exactly what that means, I have no idea. They've said they chased the Doc down the hallways to get my request filled, handing him the RX refill paper. But then nothing happens, no refills. The Doctor has told me that no point in getting a refill request into the pharmacy before the refill runs out, because by law, they won't fill it anyway. ( Which as per the pharmacy is a lie ). I've been looking for a new Doctor, but, the only Doctor that agree to see me are those with the concierge service ( $2500 cash up front ) . So...here I am, medications running out today, and I know that a battle awaits to get my prescriptions filled. I talked to an attorney, but, he said there wasn't anything they could do. Really is quite depressing.
