I had that happen to me with one pill. I am glad it happended with only one pill because it was a cheap lesson for me.

: Has anyone had this happen to them? I had a legitimate accident; my cat jumped up on the sink while I was counting out my meds for the little day by day holder I have to keep my meds for each day straight, and she knocked them over and I lost most of the meds down the drain. Now, that was a legitimate accident, and I know my contract states they will not replaced lost or stolen medicine. But, I called the docs office to let them know what hapenned and that I was not looking for replacement of the meds, but of a way to handle the withdrawals when what was left ran out.The doctor prescribed for me clonidine, which they said helps with the withdrawals. Has anyone here had anything like this happen to them? I know this is a weird topic, but, I want to know if anyone has had any experience like this. And believe me, next time I count my meds, I will lock the cat out of the room in which I am doing it! LOL. I am actually really scared about the withdrawal and the pain I will have to try and live through. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. Kim
: P.S. Does the clonidine work?
