Walmart

Walmart and Sam's Club won't even carry percocets or Vicodin here in NM. I really wonder who sets up these regional rules. Best of luck, Goat . . . Q

And tom think, I thought it was bad here

Here in South Florida, things are bad but to go through all of that to get a script for 60 pills?  Forget it!!!

Where is this Goat?

I have not had any problems getting my 200 30 mg oxys for the past two to three years mainly because the pharmacy that I deal with put a 200 pill limit on all oxy products.  It is working for them.  Im here in Miami though. Nobody should have to go through withdrawals, ever.  That is the worst, believe me, I went through them for years before I could find a decent Dr.

Yeah . . .

When they put up the limit here at 120 no way would they touch me Rrx for 240. I mean, if the prescribing Dr. Says that I need 240 a month that's what I need, what education allows a pharmacist to override an MD? This drives me crazy, like if the Dr. Determines one month that due to circumstances, whatever they may be, you need ann extra 60 pills your ins. Won't cover it and the pharmacy won't fill it no matter what. Is there a special degree that says when it comes to meds the pharmacist/insurance agent is king? No, I think that the almighty $ is the boss in thie situation . . . Q

also

 Never tell a pharmacist that you try to keep a  few put back for emergencies. They just think you are up to no good at least that is how they look at me.

I have found

it best to never talk to a pharmacist if I don't have to.  Well Goat, I am sorry to hear that.  I feel so guilty here in Miami having no trouble getting my 200 a month.  It just seems unfair.

Your right again, Goat . . .

When I tell my Dr that I always try to keep a months stash of hold backs, just in case, she gives me a big smile and a pat on the back for " Being Prepared" and just having the knowledge that something can happen and withdrawals are the result. I would never tell a pharmacist that, they'd probably think that if I could hold some back that I don't really need that many and then start thinking that I'm diverting. Fortunately I, through my wife, have a good working relationship with my pharmacy and I also feel kinda guilty like Herrball that we have no trouble while you're being put through the wringer . . . Q
