Losing Sleeping Pills
One night I was taking my Ambien while I had a migraine. I dropped pills at the time. The next day I found them strewn over the bathroom floor and some in the sink that had disintegrated. I lost 6 pills. Ambien is a controlled substance and there are no refills left on my prescription. I can only bite a pill in half in order to survive til my medication can be refilled. Because I have taken the medication for about 8 years my body has developed a sense of dependence on it. It is horrible trying to fall asleep at night. There is nothing I hate more at night than not being able to fall asleep. My social worker knows the story and she knows my psychiatric nurse practitioner but I don't think there is absolutely any way I can get extra pills even though my insurance would override the prescription, (It overrides a prescription once a year).
