After talking with the Doc this morning ( yes I get that fast of a response! I call, he calls back same day, we get new script today!) Nice huh!!?!?!? We are ditching the concerta 18mg since even at 18 he is up all night no need to try the 27mg and keep him up later and add sleep stuff. He says it's just not the right one yet!

So as we speak the pharmacy is filling Metadate CD (what's diff with CD versus ER??) we are doing it in 10mg doses (he never seems to make it over the lowest doses of stuff) and I can increase to 20 if I feel needed after a few days.

So here we go again!!!

BUT...I have just received a call from walgreens, the local store (two blocks away) doesn't carry the 10mg Metadate, so I now get to pick up the script and drive three towns west of here (20 min) for the only walgreens in the whole darn SE corner of Wisconsin that does have it in before this friday!!! ARGGHHH!!!

The things we do for our kids (ok for myself too I'd hate for him to go without tomorrow!!!) LOL!! Hey if I can't laugh at myself...right???

Try humor it really works sometimes!

Off we go! ~Jenell

Jenell.

I know what you mean by laughing at ourselves.... What I can't figure out is why your walgreens can't call the other store and have i delivered to them so you don't have to drive so far away from home to get it..

I know that all of these meds are controled substances but goodness if they can call and get another store to send paixl to a location that doesn't have it then they should be able to do the same with this.....LOL


I wish you the best with the medication and drive safely


hugs

I'm not laughing anymore!!!!!

So I drive 15 miles to the walgreens that was SUPPOSED to have it, Yes I said supposed to!!! They inturn were kind enough to call three other pharmacies in thier town, none of which had to 10mg dose of Metadate CD. WEnt back to my original walgreens not very happy!!! they then called three other stores in other towns (and other neighboring state!!) NO ONE stocks Metadate CD in 10mg, only 20mg!!!! So they promised to have it to me by friday, oh well that is nice and what do I do between now and then!!!! I don't have any concerta left (kept him up all night, and still implusive, not listening etc) have some adderall XR left but I took him off of that last month due to BAD emotional outburst coming off if it. So what would you do???????????

I'm thinking go med free for three days. He's not in school thank GOODNESS!!! until next tues, (I told Walgreens if they didn't have that by friday I was dropping him off at the pharmacy for childcare!!LOL!!!) well atlast he'll sleep good for three nights right???? I've never had him miss one day yet, not one since diagnosis in Jan. He doesn't get violent so he won't harm himself, he has no swimming lessons so no worry there, he'll just be his flighty, grabby, silly, immature,impulsive, antagonsitic, did I say flighty, not lsitening, goofy silly, little self????

What would you do??

And yes I'm calling the Ped and thanking him frist thing in the AM for this wonderful dosage he gave us so no one else had to go through this!!! (wouldn't be so bad but we are is a rural area! in a city I'm sure you'd hit one pharmacy with it??woudldn't ya?)
