I called as soon as they opened and they said they may not be able to get to it today. I understand my meds aren't really high priority, but it sucks that I may have to wait til Monday because of the long weekend and I've been trying to get this since Monday. (I called Monday, they called it in Tuesday. Called the pharmacy and checked the price out of curiosity and it went up by $40 ($70 vs $30 for a teeny weeny bottle of eye drops) Called my insurance and had them give me a comparable medication that was cheaper, by the time I was able to get in touch with the right department at my insurance this was on Wednesday. I have a 9 to 5 so I have limited time to get in touch with people during business hours. Wednesday the doctor's office was closed, so I'm trying to get it by today and I'm just wondering if this is normal? Does the kind of medication matter, like since it's just allergy medicine it's not that important? My eyes are driving me NUTS and OTC stuff never helps. ;_;
I hope this isn't against the rules.
ETA: So I called the pharmacy around 4pm to see if my medication had been called in. Pharmacy girl is surprisingly nice and suggests that I call the doctor and let them know it's REALLY important, I explain that I did that but that the receptionist said there was no guarantee. She says she is going to call the doctor for me. I call back when I'm out of work at 5:30 and the pharmacy says the doctor did not call in the script. *sigh* on the plus side, I bought the Zaditor and we'll see how it works....it would be much easier to try something OTC then have to wait every time I run out of the presciption stuff.
ETA: So I get home and have a message from the doctor's office. Apparently I need to come in for a change of medication. I can't imagine why this would be the case, since I'm not changing the drops due to any medical problems but because I can't afford the price hike (which I explained over the phone). I guess it's their policy but this is becoming such a huge pain, I'll have to miss work, fork over money for the co-pay for a doctor's visit plus the money for the new brand of drops. *sigh*
