thanks, but i'm not about to call their office again. the neurologist i'm seeing has a different story every time i see her, she told me that i refused to take a medication for another month (methergine) when i didn't. the prior visit, she told me herself that if i didn't see an improvement within a month that i should stop taking it, she had a fit when i hadn't tried one of the migraine meds by the time i saw her back (migranal) and last visit she asked if i was calling her a liar and told me i'm addicted to oxycodone/percocet because i told her i never received the 90-day supply script that her office said they mailed. her office supposedly mailed me two 90-day prescriptions for it - which were NEVER even received. so just to make a point, i haven't taken the !#$!#$ percocet since my last visit, two weeks ago. i think if i were addicted, i would have felt like i needed or would have taken it by now, not to mention i have a whole bottle at home i haven't even opened yet. i got three different stories about those prescriptions - one that is was mailed to be along with a month script (i only got the one for a month), one that it was mailed directly to my mail-order pharmacy two months ago (they never received it), and another that it was mailed to me PRIOR to the 30-day supply mailing.
and, oh by the way, did i mention that my neurologist said if i want to take narcotics (which i didn't ask for) that i'll have to see another doctor because she doesn't treat patients on narcotics, nor does she prescribe them. yet she keeps a list of all the narcotics from strongest to weakest to show to her patients and she's put me on percocet, oxycodone, darvocet, stadol, and i left two weeks ago with a prescription for hydrocodone. so, yes, i guess she IS a liar.
can you tell i'm looking for a new neurologist??? and i go out of state to see this one...
okay, i think i'm done with my whining now.
