I have been so busy with my mom that I forgot to call Andrew's DR. to get a refill on his meds. He is already beyond wird after not taking them for one day, I may not have any sanity left at all by Tuesday.

Yikes! Sorry to hear that. If you keep a calendar I would put a reminder for next month on it.

Call the doctor's off hours line.  or sometimes a pharmacist will help out with just a couple doses. Take the child to an urgent care or one of those in store quick care clinics if that doesn't work, take what paperwork and the med container if you can and discuss it. You should be able to get the meds that he needs.

I have had our regular pharmacist help out with a couple of days worth of meds until can get ahold of the doctor.  Good luck.  Don't beat yourself up over this.  It happens!  Once I almost gave my DD my DS's ADHD meds.  Luckily, she asked what the meds were for!

LOL I once accidentaly took one of Andrew's ADD meds instead of my antibiotic I was on at the time.

I'll just tough it out. I am tired of all the running and want to take advantage of the couple of days that I do not have to. He will be OK for a aother day or two I think.
