I just spoke to someone who is a pharmacist. It is not Doctor shopping PHEW!! considering the small amount i was trying to fill, it was my first time dong this and I NEVER tried to refill early before all that will happen is they will just make a note that i cannot get meds there. Or just make a note of the situation. The people they look to bust are habitial doing this all the time with A LOT of meds being prescribed. I was trying to fill 30 come on now!! The pharmacist will not call my doctors nor insurance company. I will just hold the second prescript
ion and wait till the end of next week to re fill it. I now know to never get two prescript
ions at same time thats all. It was perfectly fine that i got my GP to give me a prescript
ion while my orthopedic was out for two weeks. It was HIS mistake that he didnt make a note that I should have gotten 30 per week not 20 for TWO WEEKS!!!! That's was their dumb mistake not mine!!! what's scary about
all this is I am someone who suffered a terrible injury and am not abusing my medication. I only take 3.5 - 5 a day not 10-20. I understand why they have this law, and NOTHINg was ever explained or outlined to me when I started my pain medication. Again not my fault. And my GP knew my entire story and never once said "hey I can't help you out i'm sorry I can get in trouble". He heard that my orthopedic office screwed up and he helped me.
