What day did you fill the percocet prescription? What does it say the maximum daily dosage is for the one you got from your PCP?
That may be why they will not fill the Percocet. Even if the script said, take 2 every 4-6 hours, it also has a maximum daily dosage, which is usually 4, so if you took two every 6 hours, you would be well over the maximum daily dosage of 4.....
If that is the case, you won't be able to get the Percocet filled until the number of days that the script for 30 would have run out on .......
As far as the Oxycontin goes, have you had to get prior authorization previously? Or it may be because they are using the brand name to fill now because of the lack of a generic formulation.
It should be just a matter of them contacting your insurance company to get that authorization though. Good luck, I hope that you get this straightened out.
