So today I had my follow up appointment with my PM Dr...... we discussed stronger longer lasting meds..... again... taking pains meds is new to me.... I was very, very resistant to taking any and all medication... I now realize it is something I must do in order to relieve my pain symptoms.
My PM Dr prescribed me 15mg of Roxycodone 3X per day.... doubt I'll take 3 a day but we'll see.....
So I go to CVS to get the script
filled and am told because of the DEA indirectly CVS does not have them in stock and sends me to this tiny pharmacy right down the street.... I am with my husband and not in my own truck where I have my license (my husband drove me in his car to my Dr's appointment).... CVS has all my info and I never had to show my license before to drop off or pick up a prescript
ion so I wasn't even thinking.... fast forward.... I am at the new pharmacy and ask the woman if they had my script
in stock... she eyeballs me.... no smile no nothing..... walks over to the pharmacist behind the counter and asks him.... he says.... yes... we have that in stock.... she asks for my license and I say "shoot" let me get it... I will literally be back in 5 minutes (I live right down the street)
OK.. I admit forgetting my license looked kinda fishy.... again I am new at this and again I do all my refills at CVS....
I leave the script
with her so they can call my Dr check it out and do whatever.... 5 minutes I am back.... there is a new guy behind the counter in a NY Yankees tee shirt he calls me over I give him my info and he is staring me dead in the eye asking me questions..... yes... at this point I am nervous.... I was never treated like this before.... he now tells me they DON"T have the meds in stock and they will be getting them in.... come back in an hour.
I walk away from the counter almost to the door and he calls me my first name to come back to the counter..... I thought how strange.. almost like a test.... he tells me he forgot that he needs a fingerprint..... OK A WHAT?
OK I understand people abuse the system and they have every right to check up on people.... but in all honesty it's how they go about
it.... I have a valid prescript
ion from a Dr.... I do not choose this lifestyle.... I wish there was nothing wrong with my neck.... I wish I didn't have to take medication.... right now I don't even want the darn script
..... I am going to tell them too when I do to pick it up.... it's just not right!!!
Is this really what everyone goes through.... I didn't do anything wrong but feel like crying....
