Voices of pain patients

This sickenings me…..my husband and I live with chronic pain as well due motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents we were involved in at no fault on our part. We had to go to a private pharmacy after Walgreens started denying our pain prescriptions as well. Now the pharmacy that we are going to made us pay $75 apiece to go thru a consultantion informing us that he was going to be contacting our Dr to try and prescribe something else for us instead of the cocktail meds that have been described!! He stated there are other meds would be much better for our chronic pain. Wtf…since when can a pharmacy/pharmacist do this?? He is not our Dr…..plus I am only taking one pain med while my husband is only on one pain med and flexeril. Is this legal for a pharmacist to inquire abt all of our medical history plus charge for consultation fees? We were told as long as all meds were filled at his pharmacy that we would have no problems with getting our pain meds filled but go every month and still treated as drug addicts!! What the hell is going on in this country?? We should be able to get our meds filled from a legit Dr with no problems. Pharmacist are over stepping their boundaries in my opinion when it comes to my medical history and trying to tell my doctor what meds we should be on!!
