Let me preface to say that my very best, longest friend is a pharmacist. I love her dearly and always trust her opinions on any med I try. I always ask her what takes so long to fill a freaking prescription 😉 She is always there for me when I have questions. Like when I forgot I had already taken my ADD med and I took it again accidentally a second time. She reassured me no need to call the ambulance. \
My doc put me on a new migraine med. I’ve been wanting to try this med for a long time and all of my docs weren’t willing to try it yet because it’s “off label”.
I received a call from the pharmacist questioning the directions of the script . I told him that she sent me the directions and than i was all set. He was adamant that he couldn’t fill it until he spoke with the doc about the directions. Are you kidding me? I was soooo annoyed. WTF, pharmacist.
Finally the script was filled. I noticed the pharmacists personal note to me as to how to take the med. I quickly opened the bottle and took a pill. Then I read the guys note! Oops. Half a pill, apparently.
Damn myself for being a know-it-all.
