This is pretty bad. I've just had a complete knee replacement and spent two and a half weeks in the hospital and rehab. I'm home and chock full of various medications to get me going again. As you can guess, some of them are narcotics for pain. I have so many bottles of pills they are lined up on my counter so I can make sure I take the right ones at the right time. I've had people in and out of the house. People for PT, blood draws, neighbors and other friends and co-workers. Last evening was the 6th day home from rehab. Joint replacement is very painful. One of my pain meds is for once a day just before bed. It is supposed to help get me through the night so it is the strong one. I was looking at the bottle last night and noticed the bottle lists the count I bought and paid for as 20 tablets. As I said, I've been home 6 days at this point and getting ready for my sixth night dose. Clearly the pills in the bottle aren't looking like I've only taken five, going on six. So I dump the bottle and count. Eight pills are missing. So I have sat here pretty much ticked off someone would do this and that I didn't notice until it was too late. Did the Pharmacist short me? Did a neighbor take them? Was it a co-worker? I can't prove anything and if I ask, it is just going to make bad relations over all. What did I learn? Trust NO ONE. Count the narcotic pills when you get them from the pharmacy before you leave. Find a different way to keep track of the medication schedule. I won't be able to look at ANY of the people 'who could have' the same ever again.
