Day 63 on Bactrim... and I might have to go back to Day 1 all over again..
So my skin's doing pretty well. Every now and then I'll get a cyst and a few pimples but it's nothing too bad. I finally finished finals so hopefully my skin can recuperate haha
Alright so what's really making me freak out is that last week I noticed that I only had about a week's worth of Bactrim left, so I called my pharmacy to get a refill and they said that they would need my doctor's approval, and that they could do that themselves. So, I let them.
Finally ran out today, and I'd been getting calls saying that my prescription was ready so I said "alright time to go pick them up!" Well I pick up the medication, head home, and realize it's my other prescription, Diamox! [Now, I'm going to see my ophthalmologist on the 30th, and judging by the fact that I've gone from 6 pills a day to just 1, he might end up telling me that I don't have to take it anymore... so that sucks...]
Anyways, I head back to the pharmacy and I tell the pharmacist that I meant to pick up another prescription, and what do you know?? They're still waiting for approval from the doctor!!
I call my derm, and guess what it's Sunday so they're not open!! And so, by the looks of it I'll be skipping Bactrim for a few days, and I'm just freaking out that my acne's going to come back and really bad, because I think that's what happened with Ziamox - I ask for a refill and they tell me they're going to ask for my doctor's approval, my prescription runs out before my refill's come in, I go about a week without taking anything, they tell me the doctor still hasn't approved my refill, and after I finally get my refill and have taken it for about 2 months it does nothing..
(P.S. Is it just me or are a bunch of images and emoticons on these posts suddenly really huge???)
