Yesterday afternoon, we realized that there was a problem with Gavin’s Clozapine prescription. The problem was that we never received it. Last month, for whatever reason, the pharmacy didn’t include the Clozapine in his predosed packets. Instead, they sent it out separately. Not a big deal..
Unfortunately, there was a change made to his prescription that we were never made aware of and that created a problem.
For some reason, Gavin’s prescription was reverted back to a seven day only. He’d been on a thirty day script for at least a year now. Not knowing this in advance created a problem because we needed to have his labs done every single Monday. This left us without a refill and working with the pharmacy to figure out what happened.
I’m waiting to hear back from the doctor, so we can figure out what happened.
This is a huge deal because Clozapine is a very dangerous medication and missing more than one dose is dangerous.
Thankfully, we had Gavin’s labs drawn right before Christmas and the pharmacy was able to get a seven day refill out Wednesday morning. Gavin had taken his last dose on Tuesday night but the refill came in time.
The only thing we have to do now is figure out why everything changed. We need to know why we are back to only a seven day supply. It takes a year to work up to the thirty day supply. The only thing I know of that causes the reset button to be pressed, is if he falls off the script by missing more than one dose. That hasn’t happened.
Either way, we are good for the next week. That gives me seven days to figure out what’s going on..
