And just how do they think that's going to work, given current laws
with regard to prescription meds? You can't just 'set some aside',
since they'll only give you enough to cover what you need to take.
For those of us that have to, you figure it out. If they're
perpetual prescriptions they overlap. You re-order before you run out
so you can gain a small amount after the first couple times. Then you
cycle them through so they don't get too old.
I always have 2-3 days worth of my transplant meds extra, and stored/
carried in a separate kit if I travel.
What do you do if travelling abroad for an extended period.
The UK system usually gives 28 days supply, or 7 days to people who are
on addictive stuff that has a street value.
I was given three months supply of my meds and ancillary stuff in the UK
prior to going abroad this winter with no problems.
I believe it's pretty much the same here.
IRONICALLY after this damn thread... We've had the travel day from
hell. Straight out of the 'Out of Towners." 4 hour delay (2 on the
tarmac) after a 2 hour drive through terrible weather and idiot
Another 30 minute delay (in the plane) in Vegas to transfer to
Tucson. They lost our one bag. When we got to the rental car agency
the power dumped and we had to wait for about 40 minutes before they
got it back and steady and got us out of there.
Did I mention my meds (except for a day and a half of pills and my
insulin) are in my lost luggage? So if they don't show up by tomorrow
morning, I start scrambling to get them replaced...
All this to surprise my best friend (and former Submariner
extraordinaire) for his 50th B-day...
We flew for 11 hours to avoid an 8 hour drive... :/
I guess everybody has some mountain to climb.
It's just fate whether you live in Kansas or Tibet...
