Hello, does anyone get thier medications sent via mail? My pharmacy thinks this would be helpful since i have a charge there and i have to take a cab ride several towns away to obtain my medicnes.I do this(long trips)because the place i go allways gets me filled in 15 minutes at best instead of hours at the larger pharmacys and no hassle.So does anyone trust the mail or UPS or fed ex????Also i live in a condo that also is a resort hotel and i trust the stafff,however a package from a pharmacy addressed to me is a sure payoff along the line.please respond soon!    Peace,RD

re...

I have tried to sign up to get my schedule 2 meds sent to me but my insurance..CVS caremark will not honor my drs scripts -- not at their pharmacies or by mail. But it can be done..hopefully someone knows...we are not speaking of illicit activities by mail so...don't go there.

I have CVS Caremark too

and I have been asked by them to go ahead and add the CII scripts to my regular normal medications that I take daily.  Those meds, the ones that I take daily are all on Mail Order with CVS Caremark, my CIIs are not.  I just never trusted the time frame thing even though they tell me that they would honor a refill request (hard script) two weks prior to the date that it gos into affect, I still am a bit leery about that.  I have now 7 medications that I take on a daily basis, that come vis Mail Order.  Never had a problem with them at all.  I have just never had the guts to go all the way and order the CIIs via Mail Order.  If I were you though, living in a condo that serves as part of a resort hotel, I wouldn't hesitate to do the Mail Order thing.  Just my honest opinion.  Hope this helps you..

Goat, I am not sure that I understand what you're saying about the CVS Caremark thing.  They serve as my Pharmacy Benefits Manager and they have actually asked me to do the the Mail Order thing with my Pain Meds.  I don;t think I'll ever get around to doing that at least not this year.  I would consider doing it though.  Maybe within the next couple of years.  I will be going on Medicare in 4 years so that may become an entirely new fiasco....

 I have sent all the paperwork and my schedule 2 hard scripts to CVS for mail order service.

After about 3 weeks they returned my scripts...with a letter stating..." Returned at my request".

I wouldn't have bothered just to ask for them back. Local CVS stores won't fill my schedule 2s either.

All due to their dislike of my pain management Dr.

Please don't confuse the two

That just sounds to me like the CVs part of the CVS Caremark.  I have nothing but net when I deal with the CVS Caremark people.  I did have an incident similar to yours and I received a phone call telling me that I had to pay for a script that I ordered in error and did not want it.  Did not open it , did nothing.  They had to check the phone conversations that I had with them and then after they did that, I was told that there was no error on their part, I must pay the $100.00 for the script.  Keep in mind that we pay no more than $7.00 per script no matter what it is unless of course there is no generic.  This was outrageous but i got past it.  Sounds like your situation is quite similar in a way.  I had them (Caremark) that is call the local CVS to void out a medication and after they got back to me to tell me that is was done, they used the words MORONS, IDIOTS, SLO MO, DUFUS, ETC.  They were describing theyir experience with the personnel at the CVS by my house.  It truly is amazing.  I must have 5 CVS within a 5 mile radius and the one that is closest to my house is the worst, bar none.  Not one word of English, and you might be better off if they dont understand you at all.  Use hand signals, you'll get somewhere.  But don't confuse CVS with CVS Caremark.  Goat, I think I mentioned this but I use their Mail Order service for everything but my CIIs.  I will take that plunge soon, I jst see that coming now.  Take care and I hope all of this works out eventually for the Rocker...

beverly hills area pain management doctor

Hi Guys,
Any ideas on how to find a pharmacy that can get me the Actavis generic oxycodone 30 mg. The one I always go to used to get it for me, then gave me some story that they cant get anymore, now I get the M's, Mallinkroft 30 mg, but my body does not like them. I would just like one pharmacist to order them for me every month, but this seems to be hard. Any ideas? My Pain Mgmgt Dr is in Beverly Hills, Ca, but I live in San Fernando Valley. Its a pain just to get these filled every month, so to ask for a certain brand is harder. Ideas or does anyone know a pharmacy that does carry the Actavis brand always?

Thanks

A-215's oxycodone 30 mg

re: earlier post. Sorry, I am new to do this, I realized should have started my new thread, instead of throwing it up on someone elses bottom, I'm sorry my bad. Question still stands, looking for LA pharmacy that carries the Actavis A-215 oxycodone 30 mg IR tablet. I can't fnd them anywhere, and just am tired of looking. There has to be a easier way, and sure someone can get me started.. Its a legal script I get every two weeks, just can't find the right product, and I do not like the M's much, want the A-215's.

Thanks in advance

Good luck

Yes its best to start a new topic...things are slow lately as well.

 As for your question... I would give up your search and be happy you can get your script filled with any brand.

Beggers can't be choosy...that's my feeling getting oxycodone filled.

HERRBALL CVS CareMark and CII's Mail Order

I WISH I still had CVS CareMark I now have Express Scripts and they lie and change quantities in the middle of an annual benefit period and now I am forced to get a "PA", Prior Authorization every six months.

Anyway, back to your concern about mail order CII's via CareMark and Oxycodone. My personal expierence had ALWAYS been positive. To repeat what you said that "they" told you; YES they were filling and mailing my CII Oxycodone in a timely manner. For years they would arrive via FedEx or UPS (My shipping choice) two weeks before I ran out of a 3 month supply. I also had at least 5 other meds being filled as well with no schedule class and they all were fine. 

The issue with mail order of CII's and CIII's is the pharmacy must take into account (adhere to) their STATE regulations/laws and also the STATE regulations/laws were you live as to whether or not they can fill a 3 month supply. The most important part is how your pain managment doctor fills out the prescription. In NY, writtten or printed,  it must include the words "Code D" and Chronic Pain" for opiates and/or opiods. The script can also NOT be from one of your doctor's PA's scripts. It MUST be one of the doctors scripts, period. Also, most Pain Management doc's that have their act together don't even hand write a script. It's filled out on a computer, then printed on a Official CII script with several types of "controls" in place on the paper to prevent fraud and/or forgery.
