I have been seeing same PM doctor for 15 years. Just 3 years ago started taking oxymorphone 10 mg 4x a day for DDD with osteophtes, SI joint Dysfunction, and IC /PBS. I Have always used the same pharmacy since I've been his patient. I went to pick up my script a couple of months ago and it said on the script "can only be filled at CVS at xxxx address ". This is not my pharmacy so I had them quickly write a new script for me with the correct pharmacy as the one I use orders this medication for me as there have been supply issues in the past.
This was the first time he specified a pharmacy on my prescription. Is this now a common practice? I am just curious and I've had trouble filing it in the past due to "lack of raw materials" ( is what the head pharmacist told me).
I see my doctor next month for regularly scheduled visit. I was going to ask him about it just because there is supply issues sometimes. Before specifying a pharmacy on a prescription, I had to take one script to another pharmacy once because mine had none of that medication available. I called his office that day to tell them I used another pharmacy because mine had no idea when they would get any of the medicine in.
Have a magical day!
