dopamine Posted June 26, 2012 Share Posted June 26, 2012 I am going to Toronto tomorrow night, and so on Sunday night I sent a refill request to my doctor for my Adderall prescription. Come Monday afternoon (around 4:00pm) I hadn't heard anything, so I called them and asked if it was ready yet. The nurse on the phone said that my doctor is on vacation, and that I should have given them a week or two to find a substitute prescriber (what?). I asked if she had anyone filling in for her during the vacation, and the response was that yes she does, but given the "type of medication" that it was possible that it wouldn't be renewed in time. What are my options here? The gist I got was that it was possible another doc would write the script, but that since they dont like writing for CIIs, that I might just have to go without it. This seems crazy to me, whether I'm on Adderall or Lipitor, a substitute prescriber should write for it as long as it has been an established med that I am stabilized on. I'm afraid that I might have to just not go to Toronto, as my doc returns from vacation the day after I leave. Does anyone have any experience or advice on this problem?
