3 Weeks of No Meds

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I’m going to be without psych meds for 3 weeks. This will be the first time I’ve been without them for years. I hope things go well but I fear it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

I do have my diabetes and pain pills though, so it’s not all bad.


Hang on Malvok,
We’re here if we can help get you through it.

Not good. There must be some way of getting them?! 3 weeks is a long time. The withdrawal won’t be pleasant.

I hope you can pull through these three weeks,not anyway you can get those meds?

Nope, no way to get the meds. My local mental health clinic is going under and it’s become a total mess. Losing doctor, blended case manager, mobile medications, and supportive housing.

Had to move out in a rush. Not even in same county anymore.

We’ve had people here recently get emergency meds from the emergency room, and I think @rowanamethyst was able to get a refill from an urgent care clinic. Are these options?

I’m not sure, I don’t know any services in this area. Not sure they’d just give me meds right off the street with no association to their services. I do have an apt on the 28th, will be able to get meds then for sure.

man @Malvok that is rough !! I can’t believe that much is happening to you right now, right at Christmas time too…bad break. Sorry dude.

Oh crap, that’s not good man. Sending good vibes and best wishes your way.

Here, if you go to the ER they can give you a perscription, I’m not sure how it works over there though

Best of luck with Everything @Malvok.

I would try going to your local Emergency Room - They might be able to help.

Oh my gosh, I’m sorry that’s happening.

Where we live in the USA there are emergency medications available from the Department of Health and Welfare through the state government.

Maybe take your old prescriptions or prescription bottles with you to any of the places everyone mentioned.

I hope for the best for you.

I bet if you have medications, or a past prescription (recent) with your name on it, and your ID - you might be able to convince them to give you some. Call the local NAMI or equivalent if you’re in a different country. If you’re in Canada - meds are cheaper so they will likely help you, if you’re in Mexico - they are also very cheap there.

Its not like people who don’t need them are going to walk in and ask for antipsychotic medications.


I’m in a different county, not country, but too far away to go back any time soon. The problem is that I had to move asap and never got the rest of my psych meds off the lady who was delivering them to me. So I don’t have a script and since they were filled not long ago I don’t think my insurance will cover another script so soon. I can’t go back and get them. I have a few days of meds left so I’ll try to find samples around here.

Just talked to a woman at the local Mental Health Association. She was, to put it mildly, unhelpful. Even my pessimism pales in comparison to hers. She basically told me I had to go back and get my meds, that nobody is going to just give me meds, and that my insurance won’t cover new scripts.

That stinks!I wish you good luck please try to take care of yourself.

I am so worried about this for you @Malvok I am so sorry this is happening to you. I’m sure you’re upset and that makes me upset. I love you.

Hope everything works out ok

i wish you the best :four_leaf_clover:
take care :alien:
