Ok, I have been lurking on this site for quite a while and I am very appreciative of all the information contained here. It has helped me on more than one occasion.
Little background on me and my question. I have a ruptured L5-S1. Have been through all the treatments, PT, Nerve Blocks, spinal decompression and on and on. I have been very reluctant to get the surgury because I have been and can control pain and function with the medications I have been on for about 9 months. I am currently on 600mg Neurontin x3, 5mg Valium x2, Vicodin 10mg x4, and Ultram ER 200mg x1 daily. This mix I have worked on with my dr. for months and it is perfect for me, allows me to function, do my job, maintain PT and workout.
Now I go to see Dr. today, I see him every three months for meds. Ultram, and Valium I was due for a refill today, Neurontin is due on Sunday and Vicodin on Thursday(Thanksgiving). He is going to be out of town next week for Thanksgiving so he tells me he is just going to write up my all my refills today so I don't have to try to call them in next week when he isn't in. So I go to the Pharmacy and turn in my prescriptions and tell them I will be back in a couple of hours to pick them up. When I show up the little old lady pharmacy tech proceeds to tell me that they aren't going to fill my Vicoden or Neurontin because they are early (in front of everyone in line with no regard to privacy). I tell her that I understand that they are a few days early but I would like them so I don't have to deal with this during the holidays. She then tells me that I am displaying "seeking" behavior and if I couldn't come in on Thanksgiving day (they are closed) I could pick them up after the holiday.
I was mortified, because not only did she just call me a drugy but she did it in front of 5 people in line. So finally to my question, was she just being a witch or is there a regulation or law that prevents her from giving me these meds before the holidays? I have never had these problems before as I usually call my meds in on the day I run out. Am I totally out of line here or what?
