I just picked up my monthly presciption of Norco/6day. I went to the dr on thurs last week because last month he switched me to oxy 10/norco 3/day for bt. Anyway, that combo didn't work so well and I had to take 4/day of Norco (making me 4 days early) I also explained that we were going camping this weekend (since cancelled due to pain/kidney infection-r/s for next weekend)...anyway, my dr said /wrote rx for thurs 31st (not really due until monday) and he even wrote on rx that it was an "early refill"...to make a long story short, i dropped it off at the pharmacy (same one I've been at for 3 years) and they said "it'll be ready in 30min" so I take my daughter to get lunch and my cell rings...it's the pharmacist asking about
a "patient who just dropped off her rx...blah, blah" I said "I'm the patient..I think youre trying to reach my dr?" He said yes, that he "called the wrong #" so I hang up and wonder...I called the pharmacy back in about
10 mins and he says"I spoke with your dr and he says to hold this rx until sat" I said that's weird because I just left his office after he said it would be okay to pick up today" the pharmacist said" well, you can't pick up until sat" (that blew all our plans out of the water...besides being in pain) I go to get today and had no problem...but have been out of Norco's for last 3 days (extreme pain-didn't sleep...) has anyone had this happen to them? I've been taking the same rx/strength for many years in 2 different states and always got 3 refills and never had a problem picking them up early for whatever reason....so, what's up with that? I now fear that some kind of "red flag" is now associated with my name at both the pharmacy and my dr's....for no reason. I've always been very honest and don't cause any drama ever, this just made me so angry. I feel very discriminated against for being a chronic pain patient...I almost feel like making some kind of "complaint" for being discriminated against. I work in the medical field and have seen much larger doses/amounts than me!By the way, I don't take any other meds....weird.
