My doctor mailed me a prescription, but before I received it in the mail, I saw him in the office and he wrote me another one for the same thing. The office manager asked me to destroy the one that they mailed. Will he know if I fill both prescriptions?
When your prescription arrives in the mail you should take it back to the doctor's office so they can destroy it. That way your doctor knows you are honest. If you fill both of them and get caught you will be cut off. That would be put in your medical records and follow you making it hard to get another doctor to write presciptions for you. Some states keep track of every presciption you fill on their computers so chances are you would get caught.
This is illegal and if a pharmacy notices a duplicate you will be prosecuted.
Why would you need to fill the same prescription twice? Why not just ask the doctor for another prescription when the time comes?
Maybe you misunderstood my question. It's not a copy. It was just written twice.
If the office manager asked you to destroy one I don't think they wrote both on purpose.
