now it's not...just realized this and remembered that it was in there a few minutes ago.....no police report filed bc it was returned to the security office on property....bank card cancelled, no cash in it (whew) but my scripts were....:o

Saw my doc a few weeks ago and she gave me the script for this month (10mg adderall 1-2x a day) and postdated the one for May (I currently watch my friends 2 children so including mine I have 3 under 3 here 5 days a week and can't get out to pick it up during her office hours).....Meaning I could fill Aprils and then on May 5 I could fill Mays (the date she put at the top)....

I went through my purse when security called and said someone "found" it in the parking lot after coming out from the bar on property (my apt complex is set up like the French Quarter...well, how it used to look).....I went out to eat that day nearby (walking distance) around dinner time and that's when it disappeared...I never even entered the parking lot....ANyhoo, went through it and looked like everything was there and today, I realized that the scripts weren't in there....

DRAT DRAT DRAT......

Will my doc write out a new one for me for this month (could she call and check with the pharmacy that I didn't fill it??? not that my insurance would pay for 2 months in one month)??? She is off the next 2 days so I can't call and ask her......My friend's normal sitter is back in town so I can go pick it up now......

Can the person who "found" my purse fill them even if they are in my name????

This is the only script drug I've ever had to take (and boy am I happy I was finally diagnosed..) so I don't know how all that works...

TIA from a newbie...

Don't know about where you are, but when this happened to a friend of mine. She had to have a police report listing the script as stolen before he doc would refill because of the nature of the script. I hope you don't have to go thru all that. Good Luck.:)

Yeah me too...


Can't really do a police report days after the fact......

*SIGH*

DRAT DRAT DRAT.......

I got the phone call from security around midnight saturday (sound asleep but our phone never rings that late unless something is wrong with someone) so I threw on clothes and bumbled down to the office and picked it up....said thanks, came home and was WIDE AWAKE FOR 3 HOURS....ugh.....so I didn't think to check for them....why, I don't know...it's not like everything in there was neatly in it's place...it was all fumbled about...

grrrr......

You can still file a police report. As far as I know most doctors won't give another script unless you have files a police report. It wouldn't hurt. It's definatly worth a try. You would probably have to show the pharmacy the police report as well if the person who stold it actually had the nerve to get it filled.

Update...

I called my doc's office and she has been on vacay but they would let her know when she got back today...she called and said that I wouldn't need to file a report that a copy of the security office log was good enough (mst of the security guards here are police officers moonlighting anyways) so I went in this morning and picked up my scripts for April and May (postdated).....

Went to my pharmacy and nobody tried to fill it there so I don't know if they tried to fill it elsewhere...My insurance info is only on file where I fill it so if they were dumb enough to try to fill it they would've had to pay out of pocket...My pharmacy checks ID when you pick it up (I have my neighbor pick it up for me sometimes if I can't get out in the daytime and they have her name on file...)...Maybe bc it's so close to a university, IDK.....We are moving so I am gonna switch my pharmacy to somewhere closer to home....

So, all it all worked out in the end...

Off to sew now, no childcare this week as all the families are on spring break with their older children and I am up to my eyeballs in orders....whew.....
