Wiggy - Best of luck on this journey. I know what you mean about the 'see the pharmacist' message. I have my presriptions filled at three different pharmacies, as my prescribing doctor was concerned I would be denied if all three were at the same place. As it is, one pharmacist insisted on verifying the prescription for zithro, as he said it was very rare to receive one for monthly refills, instead of a one-time shot. Scared me, but the doctor promised a prescription a month (by phone) if I was denied monthly refills and the pharmacist agreed to go with the one prescription, refilled eleven times. I can imagine the fuss if I came and filled three antibiotics every single month in one place.
I've been asked a couple of times what I take it for, which is probably a violation of a bunch of privacy laws, but now I just say chlamydia pneumoniae infection and they nod and say 'oh'. I figure they probably run to the computer to find out what that is as soon as I leave the counter!
