I keep 5 and 1 mgs on hand as well. You can get them in 60 count refills as well. I had to ask for the 60ct refills, but it's the same charge as the 30ct.Strikes me as a case of being dosed based on the pills you have rather than writing a new prescription. Guessing you have either 8 mg tablets or 4 mg. Should just ask for another prescription of 1 mg tablets.
I keep 5’s and 1’s on hand all the time. I can do a lot with those. 5, 6, 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 10. Sure, 8 would require 4 pills, but whatever.
I typically alternate 6mg and 7mg daily.
With 8’s and 1’s, you could do 9 mg daily going up or down 1 mg or even splitting the 1’s if needed.
