I have had this happen but it was a pharmacy oversight and it was absolutely miserable (wrong date entered in drug database).It makes me so angry that people who really depend on this medication have so much trouble getting it due to the abuse of others. Nonetheless, I survived but it wasn’t easy. Honestly, nothing else can make it better but I suggest taking a day of rest and move obligations if possible. Try not to make any decisions or tackle any big projects. Coffee and caffeine were pretty much the best options. To prevent this from happening I actually switched from a major pharmacy chain to an independent pharmacy. I have a relationship and know my pharmacist now. He orders my medication and has it ready on the day. If this were to happen again and you know your pharmacist, they might be able to call the doctor for approval then give you your medication before the signature has arrived. I highly suggest moving to an independent if there’s one in your area. Good luck I know it’s tough but hopefully only a day or two.
