5. Exactly, and if one has to pay with it out of one's own pocket to hold one through, you should do it

17. That particular med is very cheap.

I'd call the doctor and have a Rx sent to the local pharmacy. My 30 day supply is $4 at WalMart.

3. Have you called your health insurance company

about the delay? If not, call now and request a transfer of your prescription to a local pharmacy. They can do that, but you may have to be very firm with them.

4. In addition to following other posters' advice, call your congressperson.

Their offices are usually great at constituent support like this, and it will also give them ammunition to reverse the damage to the USPS.

Please keep us posted and know how much your DU community cares about you.

19. it usually takes 1 week for the pills to get here

we live on a houseboat and have one of those big locked mail boxes up on the street. at least once a week we get someone elses mail (one of the people in our moorage). everyone here is really good about giving mail to the correct people.

my husband talked to the pharmacist today and told him i still didn't get the carvedoil (or however it's spelled) from Optim RX and he was told they could give me a 1 month supply. so i can get more if i don't get them by monday.

thanks everyone for the good ideas. i will call RON WYDEN'S office monday. his people are totally awesome.

22. You can usually get an emergency supply from a local pharmacy

And have it shipped fedex if you canít pick up. My local pharmacy does pick up from car as well.

23. I get mine through the VA by mail.

As soon as I receive my medication, I put in for a refill. The computer activates it 10 day before I run out. I get it 3 days later. All my meds come from Wilmington. So far no problems. If you are using VA healthcare and you are running out of a med, your primary care can write you a prescription for 10 days worth at a local pharmacy.

24. Also, some of the state Attorney Generals are trying to collect info from people like you.

Please contact the office of your state AG and explain what your problems have been.

You might help yours build a stronger case against the Trump administration.
