So with that update out of the way I have a funny story....
Last night when I was opening my prometrium,(to stick them where the sun don't shine), the top flew off and ALL the pills fell into the toilet. The TOILET! ARGH! I quickly scooped them out and attempted to dry them off but when I went to take one this morning I found that they had all fused together in a solid mass. I wrestled one off to take this morning (hey, the toilet water was clean and at this point I'm not going to get squeamish), but figured it would be a better move to just get some more. I don't know how water affects them and I don't want to take any chances.
So since they are "refill" as needed I went to the pharmacy to sheepishly explain why I needed to refill them 5 days before they were due to be refilled. I walk up to the lady, we'll call her Super Smart Pharm Lady, at the pharmacy counter:
Me: "Excuse me, I need to refill my prometrium prescription. I dropped mine in the toilet."
SSPL: "Hmmm, it looks like you don't have a refill."
Me: "Are you sure? I thought they were refill as needed."
SSPL: "Hmmm, no. We'll have to call your doctor. Which means they may not get back to you by Monday."
Me: "Um, ok. I guess I'll just use the ones I have."
SSPl: "The ones that fell in the TOILET?"
Me: "Yeah. What else am I supposed to do? Sheesh lady."
SSPL: :: looks at me like I'm insane::
I walk away from the counter and think, hmm, that's weird. It isn't like I'm taking them orally.
Ten minutes later I get a call from my RE's office, (they're open on Saturdays and Sundays, God bless them!), asking why I'm trying to refill my CLOMID since I'm due for bloodwork on Monday.
Stupid pharmacy lady didn't listen to WHICH prescription I was asking for. No wonder she looked at me like I was totally disgusting, she thought I was talking about taking Clomid pills out of the toilet water and swallowing them! EW!
Rob and I laughed about that for about 10 minutes!
