Trish, I hate when I forget I'm out of refills! Sometimes the pharmacist has let me have enough for a couple of days until the refill comes through. Another reason I always go out of my way to be overly nice to my pharmacist, lol.
We have a great relationship with our pharmacist too. One time she fronted me some syringes while we were waiting for the insurance to approve them. How stupid is it that they approved insulin but nothing to inject it with?! (It was straightened out though.)
Trish, this is off topic, but I had a similar problem with my insurance back when I took Humalog w/ a pen, but Lantus didn't have pens out yet. They'd either approve pen needles for the humalog OR syringes for the lantus, but not both. Sigh!!!!! The pharmacist finally worked it out. Hope the refills come in soon!
