I saw my dr in December 2019 - this year. He wrote me a script for Valium for 2 months. They normally last me for 7 months. I called for another script in July.. Long story short, I still have some left from Dec because I take very small dose when needed but I am almost out. However, I moved in Aug 2019 and I misplaced my meds that my dr prescribed in July because of the move. Small dose of V helps me when my anxiety is over the top and I can't sleep which is rare... they are my last result.

I saw my counselor a few weeks ago and I explained the situation to her. I informed her my dr may not believe me. She informed me, called your dr office. He knows your history and know how long they last you. So I bit the bullet and called today. Spoke with his head nurse and explained the situation...so I will see if he will approve the medication. She informed me I need to make an appt because its been almost a year since I have been seen. I made an appt. They know how to get you in to pay their bills.

Most dcotors like to see their patients every six months as a rule. That is the norm. Even if it is just a quick hello and how are you doing. I am sure the doctor will give you the medication. First time it has happened to you. If it happened on a regular basis he might ask questions. A once off event and you should be fine. Others abuse their medication. They would be looking for a new script early every time. A big hint to a doctor that they are either taken more than they should or giving them to others to use. Sad to say that it does happen. They would know who does this by how often they ask for new scripts. This is your first times asking for one early and you have a valid reason. I don't see any problems with him giving you the script.
