I just went to get my new prescription of Lamictal filled which I desparately need and my regular pharmacy was out. They said I would have to wait until tomorrow and it is supposed to snow here and I might not be able to get out. Keep in mind this is replacing abilify. So I went to get the prescription filled at another pharmacy and they told me medicaid would only allow me to get the prescription at the first pharmacy which was out. Now I am stuck. Don't know what to do. If it snows and I don't get my med I could end up in the hospital. Has anyone ever heard of this with medicaid?

I don't know about Medicaid but have you thought of the Drug Companies. All you do is have a Doctor work with you, it goes strictly by your income. My limectial is mailed to me. NC. The Doctor only writes a few lines and the RX's

They actually have the system set up where you can't get a med in an emergency.

Each state is different in medicaid. I know that there are two types of Medicaid for the county I live in. One that is not accepted by my daughters doctors, and one that is. So I guess it depends on which medicaid is accepted at which store. However, they should have given you enough at the second pharmacy to get you through until the first phamacy can fill your script. That is what they are supposed to do.
