Default Medication

I'm on a many different medications for mental illness as well as for a pituitary brain tumor. I'm being sentenced in a month and I want to make sure I don't have a lapse in my meds. Is there anything I can do to make sure I continue to get them in Logan? I already had all my Dr's write letters and state what I'm taking.
Thanks

They need to state not only what you are taking and why, but that substitutions are inappropriate. You will be subject to the drug formulary, so getting around that takes a bunch of work.

Oh, and do not count on benzos- they will not be available to you. You will also want to talk with your doctors about missing medication and switching meds so you can plan on what to do if you miss doses or get switched to a less expensive med.

What yourself says! And add in there that lapse of any medication during incarceration is detrimental to your progress.
