Hello,
I am new to this forum and need help. I have only been on Subs for 21 days today, and let me say it has changed my life for the best. I had a doctors appointment tomorrow morning at 10:00 am. Saturday the 7th of January.

My Doctors assistant from the clinic calls me today, and tells me he has to cancel and reschedule until next week. So I was imiedtly worried and kind of freaking out. She then told me to have the CVS fax her the refill form, and she will have the Doctor refill enough to get me through until he can see me next week.

So I waited and waited, and started to get worried so I called them and the CVS. The stupid Doctor never even faxed them the refill! So now I don't know what to do. The CVS even said the Doctor is wrong, and shouldnt put me on this medication and then let me stop taking it abruptly like this. I don't know what to do.

Can I go to the Hospital and bring in my script bottle? Will they help me? Or and I going to have to withdrawel and get sick? If someone could please reply I would feel so much better.

Thanks
Brandon

Hey Brandon,

ER docs are allowed to script suboxone for 2 or 3 days, can't remember which, long enough to get in contact with your regular doc again. They might not know it, but they are.

Good luck.

a


anyways,
I called the clinic number, and an ANSWERING SERVICE answered,
the paged the
''on call doc''
for that night,,, who in turn got ahold of my doc, who called me, and called in a refill to the pharmacay.
I called the answering service, at about 6pm, and was picking up my refil by 730
my doc apologized profusely
so you may try that. maybe they have a nonemergency after hours number when you call the clinic number?
good luck!!!!!!!!!
if all else fails Id go to the er and get the two to three days Rx theyd give you

The ER is going to give you a handful of Valium if you're lucky. They are not going to refill your Suboxone.

All you can do is keep calling the office/answering service.

Good luck.
