Re: Why are narcotic prescriptions written for 30 days when most months have 31 days?
i have a very different type of 'days" set up with mine being filled every 28 days instead of the 30, which i personally like, for alot of different reasons? but mostly, even like looking ahead even ten months from now, i will always KNOW that no matter what, my new cycle will ALWAYS start on a wed morning, always. its also much easier to count out looking thru the calenders for my next due date too so i can highlight them too(just a matter of dropping down the "day of the week and count that way)? i just have to also be seen within that time period to obtain my new Rxes too. but with having soo many things that i just cannot actually control or really predict in my whole sick medical situation, its kinda nice just having THAT one thing always very constant and predictable, ya know what i mean? also no hassles "should' my due date happen to 'fall' on a weekend, esp the extended weekend crap or other things that can screw things up just having your actual due dates constantly changing per the days on the calender itself?? some PMs just can be such a pain in the butt(almost anal??) when it comes to even getting your med Rxes written when you are due to run out over any given weekend or mondays, esp with some stupid holidays in there too? having mine always due in the middle of the week, i am never "right before a weekend" on a friday, or 'over' a weekend should there be any issues that need contact to the PMs office either.
i am kind of suprised that more PMs just do not do the 28 day schedule since i have also heard from the NPs and the nurses that this really does help save THEM time and actually help eliminate certain hassles too? personally i just do think it is an easier way to do things and to plan ahead for other stuff too? and that real 'predictability" factor for me, and not being able to control other things REALLY IS rather comforting in THAT sense? anytime, esp with my severe recurrant depression and other medical crap besides my spinal and cord crap going on, that i actually even HAVE a constant/predictable going on in MY life, really helps ME inside my head in certain ways? can't really explain THAT part, but for some reason its just a constant i KNOW will always be when other things can change for me in any given day in a freaking heartbeat? sorry for the ramble there. marcia
