Caremark's bottle labeling restrictions
Subject: Caremark's bottle labeling restrictions
I see a problem with how Caremark is labeling their prescription bottles. For example, I just received a new bottle of synthroid for which I used a new prescription from my doctor. It was filled 8/07/07 and contains 90 pills or a three-month's supply, taking one a day. But, they label I am allowed 2 refills until 11/28/07. Well, if I got 90 tabs., that takes me to November 8th, but that would be the date for the FIRST refill. But, I have to get the SECOND refill before 11/28/07 or I need a new prescription in order to get the SECOND refill. WHY are they requesting I get the second refill when I still have two months' supply on hand from the FIRST refill????? How are they benefiting from this restriction? Why are they allowing a patient to receive DOUBLE the amount or a two month's supply on hand in order to meet their label restriction about getting BOTH refills in the time period when only one is still be used???
