Well here we go again. My Zanax is 6 days late as well as hydrocodone. Funny how its alway them.

I called and the VA Pharmacy is unconcerned and said don't worry they were mailed yesterday. I guess its sort of like retro pay when they hold up your claim.

Pete

That is really BS since if you take the hydrocodone for a while you will have withdrawal symptoms if you stop cold turkey because the VA does not send you drugs to you on time. They stopped mine cold turkey while I was in the VA hospital. I did not sleep at all for 48 hours. These people seem totally incompetent and I would not depend on them.

Need some advice,

I've only recently been getting some meds from the VA, so don't have much experience yet knowing how soon to phone in for a monthly reorder.

Have only had to reorder once so far, and it took eight days for my meds to arrive. Is that about the average amount of time?

Also, if I wanted to order earlier just to be safe, like at the 2-week point, will the VA system let me do that?

Thanks.

I think the best thing to do is to re-order as soon as you get your refill. I do this with pain meds and the VA tells me to do this so there will be no SANFU's.

Pete I order mine online every month from E Healthvet the only one they won't fill that way is the narcotics, I have to call a 1-800-835-5671 and get "ask a nurse" they get my name and last 4 then I tell them I need my doc to refill my percocets I do it on the 1st of the month as my refill date is the 6th if the 6th is Sat or Subday they send them on Friday like today I got the Fedex truck like clockwork that truck pulls up once a month a 9:05 am I live right next to the airport and I am one of the first stops I have enough drugs here to run me at least 2 weeks if they are ever late with anything what gets hard is the monthly meds, every 3 months refills etc now that gets frustrating

I downloaded the form from E vet to take to the VA so they could enter me into the "system" so I could read the names of the meds rather than just the script numbers, I went to admissions, they told me to go to the FOI-Records office that bastard told me I had to do it at home, and I told him admissions said he was supposed to do it, he states "I don't tell admissions what to do, and they don't tell me what to do" you have to do the sign up at home, I finally got mad and said look they had me print this out told me to take it to the hospital and someone at the VA would enter me into the access data base. Then he goes why didn't you say so, took my paper and opened up VISTA and punched a few keys and just smiled at me. They wonder why vets get pizzed off. My house looks like a drug store 41 open scripts try keeping up with all this stuff rofl

I have bags of pills all over the house. I can't keep up with it either. I do want to get the names of the scripts because all I get is the numbers. So you have to fill out a form and take it to the VAMC to get the names for MyHealth?

First go here and register. The password is a pain cause you have to have a number and a symbol and letters or combinations that add up to a certain amount so be careful.

https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/...egistrationHome

After you register go to:

https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/...-anonymous.html

Watch the movie and follow the instructions.

Next time you are at your VAMC drop down and see your friendly people who release information or the FOIA people at the VA.

Be sure you know your login and password just in case. They will make it so that you can order meds and also see a 5 year history of the meds that you have taken.

Its well worth the effort and eventually you will be able to see scheduled appointments and even call up labs and stuff you do at VA. May also one day let you look at your military records.

If anyone sees something wrong here please let us know.

I think that I will just start flying my private jet down to the VAMC to get my meds. To $$$$ with the mail system.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
