Extra meds
« on: November 28, 2010, 06:12:09 PM »
Ok so I had to switch my dosage of Kaletra due to my pregnancy.  The pharmacy accidental filled the old prescription so now I have a whole bottle of kaletra and hate to get rid of them.  Is there any ideas you can give me withought wasting them.  I know I used to send them to someone here but not sure if this is still an option.  Please help so I can help someone that is unable to pay for their prescription.

Hey Frannie,

Lisa died in April this year. So our medication redistribution programme has sorta fallen apart. :(

I'm not sure if anyone took it over but looking at the response to this thread, I don't think so.

Sorry.

Thanks Matty.  I know about Lisa, what a shame.  I was hoping that maybe someone else did take it over or even maybe would need them.  They are Kaletra 100mg.  I can not remember if there is 30 or 60.  They are still in the bag stapled and I hate to throw them away.

Given all the crap that was heaped upon Lisa for her efforts, I am not shocked that no one has taken her position.

Hey Frannie,

Please don't throw those medicines away. They are very valuable.

I'll ask some people and see if we can't find a good use for them.

Yup. JK is right. There were people who monstered Miss Lisa for running her medications service. Never stopped her from doing it.

It would be nice if someone stepped up to take her place.

Hint fucking hint.

Fran,

Any unused medication, that I couldn't use anymore, was returned to my HIV doctor. and he and his staff,  were always appreciative for that.  They told me there would be no problem, finding someone that might need it.  You can give that a try also. I had 2 or 3 unused bottles of viread that I returned.
