Why not call the doctor and explain and try to get them to call in a prescription at a pharmacy near you? They are usually pretty acommodating about that sort of thing.s
I should have mentioned that, too - she's out of town as well.
I don't think it would be too hard to go to an urgent care clinic, explain the situation, and get a week's worth of NP to avoid a disaster; but I'd rather not (those places are expensive) if it's not going to *be* a disaster.
There has to be someone that is taking care of the doctor's patients. I'm sure they could find a way to get you a prescription at a pharmacy near you.
lol - I'm guessing from the nature of your responses that I should take all necessary steps to avoid stopping my thyroid medication. Message received. Apparently my doctor's assistant can fax a refill in her stead because it's not a narcotic, so I think I'm all set :o)
Good. You should not stop meds.
I cant even imagine stopping my medication for one day, little alone a week. If you are out of town for a week because of work, and you truly need hormone, expect some pretty nasty side effects a couple days after you stop. Plus you have been building cell levels for however long you have been on the medication and now you are going to deplete those cells of what it needs. It will probably take you 6 weeks to rebuild your levels from being off of them for a week, plus you could be facing some pretty nasty effects. yikes!
