Actually, I see a Pain Mgmt. clinic at the University of Va. Medical Center, but they require my PCP to write my pain scripts. Makes no sense to me. Appparently, my PCP has a problem with writing scripts that are post-dated, so I have to manually make my refill requests EVERY time they are due. My Lortab and Tramadol can be faxed to my pharmacy, but I have to contact the pharmacy to request each refill, then call the PCP's office to make sure they received the request and have passed it along to my doctor. I have to pick up a hard copy of my Oxycodone script to hand carry to the pharmacy, but I have to call and request it every month, then wait for them to call me when it has been written. It usually takes two or three phone calls everytime to actually get the process accomplished. That's why I'm complaining about the process...it shouldn't be such a hassle to get regularly scheduled medications filled. UGH!!!
