Ephedrine is shipping today.

So i've been ratcheting up the pressure the last couple weeks trying to get the Ephedrine to flow, and when I last spoke with Melanie at West-ward, she told me that GPSI isn't going to be able to make good on their contract to do the gelatin banding (at least for now). That pretty much means that there won't be any new Ephedrine shipping for a while. Good thing there's old Ephedrine to ship, eh?

Yep....that's right! Melanie told me that since GPSI has dropped the ball, West-ward has decided to re-label and re-stock some EXPIRED product that they had in order to fill my prescription.

Well, obviously that's a tough pill to swallow (pun) because they could have easily re-labeled and re-stocked this expired product MONTHS AGO. All this suffering i've gone through could have been avoided with just a little paperwork.

I got a call a few minutes ago from Joe, the lead pharmacist at King Soopers and he told me that he was able to successfully order 6 bottles from his wholesaler Cardinal. And then he told me it would take 5-7 business days to ship.

I just about freaked out.

Of course, I was again on the phone immediately with West-ward asking if they could drop-ship FedEx overnight to my pharmacy. At this point, if it's a cost issue for overnight shipping, I AM WILLING TO PAY. Joe quickly called me back saying it would ship today, i'd have it tomorrow.

We shall see.
