I am feeling groggy/hung over now, and I've been dealing with the doctor/pharmacy stuff since I got up so I'm just getting on here now. Interestingly enough, it relaxed me but it isn't a sleeping drug and because my mind was racing like crazy, I didn't really sleep. Just laid there like a slug with my mind going on and on about how annoyed I was. So I slept like crap and now I'm dealing with left-over grogginess.
Called the doctor's office first thing, and the office manager said just to take the Clomid tonight, days 4-8. I actually think it will work out okay. I tend to O later, and they doctor wanted me in for my ultrasound on day 15, which is a Sunday, so when I scheduled it a few days ago she asked me to come in Friday (day 13). When I did that before, it was too early, and I was out an extra $100 for an unnecessary appointment, plus having to go back again on Monday (and take time off from work for all of it). So I convinced her to make the appointment on Monday, day 16. So actually, taking the Clomid a day later may be a good thing - but I know my body responds the way it's supposed to when I take it day 3-7. I've never tried it any other day. For some reason, doctors always say either 3-7 or 5-9, but never 4-8. Anyway, we'll give it a shot.
I also told her I specifically wanted her to ask the doctor if there was a risk to trying the treatment with the Clomazepam in my body right now. She did go and ask him, and he said it was okay, but he specifically said to make a complaint with my state's Board of Pharmacy. DH and I took pictures of everything and scanned all the labels into my computer, and I filed the complaint this afternoon. So I have a ton of evidence that at least I have the Clomazepam in my possession. They'll likely just get a letter from the Pharmacy Board, but it said if there is a pattern of incompetence they will call a hearing.
I also called the Pharmacy and told them what happened, and asked them to fill my Clomid prescription properly so I could pick it up when I came in. The woman didn't believe me and wanted to know how I knew they gave me Clomazepam (because it was PRINTED on the LABEL, you idiot!) and refused to fill it until I proved they'd filled it wrong, even if that meant me sitting in the pharmacy for an hour waiting for them to correct their error. When I got down there (much later, because I'd spent an hour or so photographing and scanning it all) she had told the pharmacist about it and got him to come out and deal with it. He did prepare my prescription in advance, and just said, "I'm sorry. It's a good thing you didn't take any." I pointed out that I DID take some (which I told the woman in the phone call) and he asked if I experienced any drowsiness. Yes, I did. "Oh. I'm sorry. Here's your prescription."
Seriously? That's all? Not, here's a coupon for your inconvenience, or anything? I am so ticked off. So I came right home and filled out the Pharmacy Board complaint. I think I am also going to complain to CVS, but I'm not sure whether I should ask for the manager of the local store, or if I should contact their corporate headquarters. I'm just infuriated by it all.
Erin, on a totally unrelated note, your post combined with all the scholarship talk for some reason reminded me of a guy DH knew in the army who was a white South African. He came to the US and apparent got a scholarship for African immigrants to pay for his college education. The way DH told it was very funny, but I guess the people who awarded him the scholarship were really angry when they found out he was white.
