    Has anyone had trouble getting gabapentin scripts filled?

      I am having trouble with muscle relaxers, my neurologist won't fill them anymore and pushed it back to my PCP to fill, she has no clue why I was even on them or their purpose pertaining to me. It was because of the Lipitor giving me cramps when I was put on them.

      I get my Gabapentin through mail from the pharmacy vendor. I was able to refill my 90 days -- I'm about half way through. We'll see what happens in a couple weeks when I call back in for my next refill...

      Gabapentin is an old drug, that was basically replaced by lyrica. I do not know why that drug would be getting bogged down.

      Many other medications are getting stuck in the system and docs have to fight to get them approved. All of the drugs in the valium family are harder to get, muscle relaxers are harder to get, and of course pain medicine is harder to get, For cancer patients that is approved, but in my area the pharmacies are having q lot of trouble having stock for the patients. It can take up to 2 weeks to get pain medication at some of the walmart pharmacies here because they are not allowed to order enough to cover the patients and volume they usually have.

      I did watch it and it was very inspiring. The interviews with people who were stage IV and told to start making those arrangements but now were NED were very inspiring. Live, I thought I remember a story about a lung cancer survivor that was in those that were stage IV but now doing OK. I'm sure they couldn't cover all the cancer types, it would take an 8 hour show. It was only an hour and it went by in a flash. Good show I thought.

      I made it half-way through and got weepy. First time that I realized there was a telethon for cancer - a telethon for me and the millions like me - it brought me to tears that these people care.

      LUNGevity brought the founder - I forget her name - to speak at their last HOPE Summit. A lot of work goes into getting one of those shows done.
