walgreens and pain meds
nanaberg2013 posted:
I receive pain meds from my Drs who see me once a month I have numerous conditions and have been on meds for a long time, today I went to Walgreens to fill my Dr written rx and they called my Dr and literally harassed them about my RSS then refused to fill them their new policy is to question our drs them say we don't need these meds and not fill them. If you are on pain meds pets and Dr are boycotting Walgreens for this arrogant practice what do u think about this

I don't know anything about it, I filled a pain med RX at Walgreens recently here in Oregon and had no trouble at all, other than the safe holding the meds was on a time lock so I had to wait less than 30 minutes for it to open.

I don't understand the last sentence of your post, "If you are on pain meds pets and Dr. are boycotting..." What did you mean bu "pets"?

Go to another pharmacy if one is close by for your immediate needs, but be sure and report this to Walgreens boss folk so they know what is going on and how you feel about it.

Take care, Annette
