Re: Help..confused on refills
the majority of people here actually are in pain management which is much different than getting a script from your primary doc.its the nature of PM.if your Rx states to take as needed and you do just that and run out in 15 days,well your doc will know that your pain is possibly more than he first thought and possibly make adjustments.just because it states to take every four to six,if you are not actually having pain ,you do not HAVE to actually take them,you know what i mean?you have an 'as needed' type of script and its kind of all in your hands here as far as you deciding whether your pain dictates a dose or not.in PM,every dose is pretty much set,and we have to go by that set dose amount.but the ins co on the other hand seem to think that every single script a doc writes is automatically for 30 days.stupid but true.its just an assumption they make til proven otherwise.but yours written the way it is shouldn't cause any real issues at the 15 day point,that is up to your doc to refill or not refill.hope they help,and welcome.Marcia
