Pharmacy messed up on my fentanyl prescription. now due to the holiday, dea, cvs rules, PM rules I am now short 1 patch ( for 72 hours).
Already spoke to PM, Pharmacy and I have to come in next time with over 10 documents including having to get a lawyer to account for the "missing" patch. the script was for 10 they only had 9 and filled it for 9. due to all the rules and tracking system there is no way to get another patch even with another script. So I have to make 9 patchs last 32 days even though they fall off ( the "cover patch are on order but delivery is unknown). The pharmacy messed up and I not only have to streach the med but have to prove my inocence to the PM via a lawyer so I don't get a "warning ( 2 and you are blackballed). In this area and my age you have to as they have complete power. If your over 65 they hand out oxycotin, daludid, morphine like candy
I know all of this is becuase of the abuse and it's easier to go after docs and patients than herion, cocaine, and meth heads. Come to think about it I can get herion easier than all my other meds combined. You break the law you get what ever you want, you don't break it and yor life is made a nightmare. Hell I could put a still in the backyard, not be in pain, 1/100th the cost and just get a fine if I ever got caught. SUCKS!!!!!
I said it before and I say it again the DEA needs an attitude adjustment. If some oneis going to abuse a substance they are going to regardless of our " help". The only ones that get hurt are the peole that legitamately need it or in my case not only need it but only do so becuase the docs won't scratch below the surface, they is no way in hell sciatiac can cuase so much *EDITED ** pain. ONly one doc told me why, the disks are dripping some chemical down on the nerves as the disks are try to heal. at that has never been verified or even commented on.
Sorry I am more than a little pissed off right now.
Thanks for letting me vent.
