I believe that I have a sympathetic pharmacist and he has flat out told me that he may not be able to fill my RX’s in the coming months. As with many out there, I have been on pain meds for many years and have been with the same Dr and pharmacy. Last month, I had to settle for a half the normal monthly dose due to supposed shortage. It Was a really bad month. I now have to make a decision whether to take my chances every month or go to rehab and live with the daily excruciating pain. The government has even started having my Dr piss test me 5 to 6 times per year. The last time I was randomly tested was years ago. I don’t really care except that the Dr bills my insurance company $4000+ for a $40 test. The system needs to be fixed. I feel for everyone out there who has to deal with pain and cannot get any relief.
