Pharmacist altered my pain prescription to prevent me from filling it, had to cancel travel plans.
Has anyone had problems with Pharmacists filling their prescriptions. Today I brought my prescription in and the he refused to fill it saying that my insurance company would not pay for it until the 30 days was up on my previous prescription. This was a brand new prescription not a refill. When I said I would pay for it because I was leaving to go out of town he refused to fill it and gave it back to me after writing on the face of my prescription "fill 4/1/09". This prevented me from taking it to another pharmacy to fill it. I had to cancel my plans.
July of last year was the first time he did this. I was going out of state because my grandson was terminally ill, he died a few weeks later. It was three days before my prescription was due to be filled. I got to pay for it, but I almost missed my flight. Of course they were rude and condescending. The confrontation made me physically ill.
My doctor has reduced my pain medication to a minimal dose with nothing for break through pain and no refills without seeing him every 30 days. I have not abused or misused my medication.
The Pharmacist actually told me to get a narcotic prescription transferred to a pharmacy in the state I plan to visit. Been there and done that. When I came to Cleveland I transferred my prescription and was raked over the coals. The pharmacists refused to fill it. Then my doctor in the other state said it was against the law to transfer the prescription to another state and cut me off. I ended up with no pain medication. I was crawling around the floor unable to walk, bathe or eat. I called the doctor screaming in pain. His nurse called the same pharmacist and told him I was going to commit suicide and asked for my address. Next thing I know the police are knocking on my door. I ended up in the hospital for five days.
Here I am a year later and nothing has changed and I am tired of suffering. Life is not worth living if I cannot engage in reasonable life activities. The last time I traveled was last October. Not only am I in horrible pain, I rarely go out even to buy groceries. This was my one chance to get away before some major medical procedures and now it is too late.
