Okay, I called to get my refill of generic Lovenox from my pharmacy yesterday. Usually it takes one day to get the meds in and I pick them up. Well, it turns out that the generic version is on MANUFACTURER BACKORDER! I've called a few pharmacies and they all are getting the same thing. One told me that another woman was frantically calling pharmacies this morning for it. Thankfully I have three doses left of my prescription which will give me the time to drive 40+ miles to the nearest pharmacy that has the quantity I need.
I can switch to brand but my local pharmacy only has 6 in stock and I need 30. Hopefully that isn't on backorder also. The copay is $22 more but I'll save that in gas not having to drive 40+ miles one way. If I can't find enough to fill my prescription, it looks like I may be switching to Heparin early.
This is ridiculous. I have to call several pharmacies in order to get my son's meds and now I have to run all over hell's half acre to get my Lovenox!! THIS SUCKS!!
