Let me give you a little background info first.
I live 30 minutes away from my doctor that I see just about every 28-30 days. He had started me on 2 10/325 tablets of Percocet a day. Then my injections wore off and I called my Dr. and he okay'd me to take up to 4 per day. Well, I had went to see him yesterday and he refilled my scripts for all my meds and when I went to the pharmacy last night to fill them, they told me that they can not fill it, it's too soon and I should only be taking 2/day. I told them that my dr. had given me permission to take 4 per day and to please call them with any questions or to varify any information. This is something they should be talking to the doctor about, not me. He told me nope, I won't do it, you have to wait 2 weeks before I will fill this for you. X( X( X( I called my dr. and the nurse said he had just left, so I would have to wait and have him call in the morning. Well, he did call them, and then the nurse called me to tell me that they had spoken with the pharmasist and I could pick up my medications. I get there, and the same idiot tells me "I can not fill this ma'am and you should be trying to seek help for your drug addiction." WHAT!?! I said, "it's your job to play pharmacist, not to be my doctor." He came back with, "ma'am I have just as much power and education if not more, than your doctor." 8} So I asked for my medications back and told him that I'll go to a pharmacy that actually does want my business and knows how to be a pharmacist.
Anyways, I'm sitting here in a lot of pain, I haven't had anything for pain in about 2 days and waiting for the new pharmacy to fill me meds. Is this normal to be treated this way? I understand it's a HIGHLY controlled substance, but why are people angry at me just for having medication? It's as if they snub at you just b/c you have to take these medications. What a headache!
