Hope you can accumulate enough to ensure you can cover your next vacation. I have managed to save up a bit since I last emptied mine.

Well,it's a perfectly valid fear. I can't think of many things - aside from intentional torture - worse than untreated RLS/WED. If I was to be prevented access to opioids, I would be screaming in fear.

I am fortunate that my doctor will prescribe for a longer period when I know I have to be away. I'm also fortunate I'm not on methadone, only hydromorphone. When my dad was sick twice I needed to get prescriptions filled in a different province without much warning, and I would not have been able to get it done so easily if it had been methadone.
