I forgot my klonopin and we are in Boston on a family trip.  Wish me luck.  I've already had two anxiety attacks :(

But the Aquarium was fun and I got record I've been looking for for a while.  Trying to relax before eating now.

 Can you have your doctor call in an emergency perscription in to a local pharmacy there? I forgot my asthma inhaler on a trip once and my doctor was great about it. I just went online and figured out which pharmacy was closest to where I was and gave her their phone number. About three hours later, I was all set.

If you're staying in a hotel there in Boston they may be able to tell you which pharmecy is the closest and might even have the number.

Hang in there!

I hope they let you have an emergency prescription. I quit paxil for the same reason (I was in England) and I don't recommend it, especially if there will be parts of the trip that stress you out. I do know that you have some coping techniques worked out by now. Hope they help!

I was able to get it, there is a cvs right up the road and I was running out anyway and it was during the time allowed for the refill.

I am from Boston, have you been to the Children's Museum and the Science Museum yet?  Fanueil Hall is cool too.  Anyways sorry you don't have anxiety meds I know how that is and it is not a good feeling.  Have you tried deep breathing excersizes?  Sometimes that works for me.

Glad to hear you were able to get your medicine. Please understand that under Federal Law, you will be unable to transfer that medication back to your regular pharmacy. It is a controlled drug. Just call your doctor and explain the situation.
