Hi all, I am in a panic, I got a call from my pharmacy telling me he cant order my Sandoz 12mcg. patches until AUGUST!!!! He says his supplier wont have any in stock! I think that when there was the 25 mcg. recall everyone grabbed up double the 12 mcg. and now the supplier is out! My pharmacy guy started trying to push the Mylan on me and I said NO WAY! Then he says he will do a few complimentary phone calls to try and find some at another pharmacy, like its not HIS problem! He will find out how much it is HIS problem when I go into withdrawals! My pharmacy has been ordering these for months for me so I don't understand why this issue wasn't brought to my attention over a week ago when they couldn't order them?
Anyway, this particular pharmacist is a little dweeb and started trying to play doctor a few months ago and I think he called my doc and tried to tell him how to prescribe my meds to me and I bet my doc put him in his place. The pharmacists story seems fishy though like he is just trying to make me use the 25mcg. This guy has NO life and really tries to butt into mine and if I can verify that he is lying I wont stop complaining until I have him fired, I am sick of all the stories about pharmacists giving us CPer's crap and they think they are doctors, ya maybe wanna be, thats what my doc told me.
Enough ranting, does anyone know how I can find out if these patches really are not order able until august? I wonder if I can call Sandoz myself and get any answers? or I think I would be content if I could at least call the supplier. Well, I guess anyone else that uses the 12mcg. Sandoz patches will be in withdrawal with me until August! I don't think so, this just doesn't sound right, it's just like immediately cutting off alot of patch users and some company should be liable for people going into withdrawal! Heck, we have enough problems with the doctors cutting us off and getting away with it. I guess I had better get to searching all the pharmacies to find one that has Sandoz. I just called the pharmacist and asked him who his supplier was and he said it so fast I couldn't understand him then he said there are like only 2 major suppliers nationally, I asked him if he had any 25mcg. and maybe I would be sleepy but I wouldn't be in withdrawal, and he said he cant get the 25mcg. EITHER! I said "WOW" this supplier is very irresponsible if their isn't any of either patch until AUGUST, I said just short of nuclear war would be the only good excuse for the supply to be nonexistent until august. He said he wouldn't let me go into withdrawal he would get my doctor to get the insurance to pay for name brand, that's a good idea I will call my doc first and ANYBODY out there with any ideas, let me know. Thanks Have A Great One!
