I was informed that my narcotic prescription (schedule 2) was void with a partial filling of the prescription. Ex. Where the pharmacy did not have sufficient stock in hand to fill my monthly prescriptions for hydromorphone and Fentanyl patch. I took what the pharmacy had available. My physician then wrote a new prescription for the deficit amount, which I filled at a later date.
I now routinely take my prescriptions to the pharmacy 5-6 days before the full date to give the pharmacy sufficient lead time.
Whether a pharmacy can fill the remainder of a partially filled prescription may depend on the class of narcotic for which the original script was written, as Darla and Lynwood have received benefit. A prescription for a hydrocodone-based narcotic would be less restrictive (schedule 3).
Either way, big case, I think you will have avenues to claim the shortfall of the 7 pills. Talk with your pharmacy and physician.
