I got my med cocktail filled yesterday to be picked up tonight. In the text I got, it said they only filled 35 of my 45 Haloperidol tablets for less than a 30 day supply. When I called to complain, the lady said that their vendor can’t get more for the foreseeable future so I needed to call around to other pharmacies who use different vendors to see if they could order the Haldol 20 mg tablets I need. She filled my script with the last 35 tabs she had in stock.
Needless to say, I am FREAKED OUT. When my husband’s beta blocker was on national shortage last year, he ended up coming off it. I have just under a month’s supply of Haldol 20 mg tablets, not enough to make a timely change to a different med. Even so, I don’t WANT a different med, Haldol works best for me and is the only one I’ve tried to be weight neutral. She said it’s not necessarily a national shortage situation, just that their vendor can’t get it.
Does anyone else have experience with shortages of your meds? Were you able to source it elsewhere or did you have to change meds? I go psychotic on less than 30 mg Haldol a day and I’m scared to death I’ll end up with another psychotic break. HELP! I don’t want to end up in the hospital!
