Am not happy

My venlafaxine prescription runs out today.

I took my repeat form into the surgery on Wednesday, giving the requisite two-day notice. The receptionist told me my prescriptions would be ready on Friday. I checked on the surgery door for when the Easter closures would be, and the notice read SURGERY CLOSES ON FRIDAY, REOPENS TUESDAY.

All well and good, I thought. I can pick up my prescriptions on Friday and get them filled.

I got to the surgery this morning and found it closed. I rang the surgery and the answering service said "We are closed for the Easter holiday..."

Thank goodness I can borrow a strip from Karen, or I'd be going into venlafaxine cold-turkey until Tuesday. Venlafaxine withdrawal is notoriously nasty.
