Shortage In Package

I think I had a shortage in my box this month of fentanyl patches. Usually there are 5 per box. I started to change my patch this evening and I only had two in the package. There should had been 3. This is one of the few times that I didn't count my patches upon opening the box. I have a routine in the evenings when it is time for the change of the patch. So my husband and I spent time trying to construct my procedures for the last couple of changes trying to see if there was a possibility that I dropped one in the floor and it slid under something. Has anyone else had a problem with shortage of patches in your boxes?

Hey all, Sorry to hear about your experiences with getting shorted on Fentanyl. That sounds to me like a major manufacturing problem that should be reported to the company who makes the Fentanyl. I'm not exactly sure what they could do for you, but perhaps just getting your voices heard will be enough to inform them that something needs to be addressed so it doesn't continue to happen.

It's a real shame that pharmacies don't allow patients the right to review the contents of their medication prior to paying for it. Blindly accepting whatever is in the trick or treat bag is kinda scary, especially after hearing about the types of mistakes that are being made not only by the manufacturers, but pharmacists too. The whole system seems pretty well rigged and set up for short term success/long term failure in my opinion.

Hope you're both able to manage your way through this obstacle. Just know that you're not alone!
