When I contacted the office her assistant told me the doctor has told her to "ignore" all requests for a refill from pharmacies. I have sent two texts and called twice. I am out of my meds at this point, all for hard to treat depression. I have been trying to get refills for two weeks.
This is a question best handled by a Texas attorney, but you await a response for four weeks. I'm sorry for your difficult situation. If the doctor is refusing to refill based on a medical reasoning in support of your best interests, that could provide them with justification. If they do not have a...Read more »

Clot. I was told I didn’t have one. 3 days later with horrible pain. I went to my doctor. I was told St Joseph’s did the wrong ultra sound to find a blood clot. After an ultra sound at St Luke’s I did have a clot. I was sent to St Luke’s emergency room. Do I have a case against St Joseph hospital.

A lawyer shouldn't advise you here; a doctor should. You should express your concerns about the impact of such antibiotics on your baby to your doctor. And if your doctor's reasoning for prescribing such pills does not address your concerns, you could seek a second medical opinion. Good luck...Read more »
