I have been on some heavy duty pain meds and at the same dose for the last four years. I was a hospital employee and received my meds from the hospital pharmacy until I was no longer able to work and started receiving disability. I was then on my husbands insurance and started to get my scripts from [Edit]. I never had any problems filling them until last month I was shorted 10 OxyContin 80 mg tablets; so I called an alerted the pharmacy. The next time I went in to pick up a script for my husband the pharmacist met me and said they had miscounted and wasn't sure who was shorted. It was time for my narcotic scripts to be refilled and she filled the one for OxyContin but not the one for my breakthrough medicine, Percocet. She then talked to me about my dosage saying it was so high and that they didn't know how much longer they could continue to fill my pain medication because of "the DEAs box 9 rule." I returned when my Percocet was due and was told by the pharmacist on duty "that she didn't feel comfortable filling it." I decided to wait until I was completely out and was politely told that they would fill it this one last time but they would not be able to fill any of my pain medications in the future and that it is within their rights to do so. I live in Indiana and looked up the state guidelines for pharmacists within my state and found nothing. I have called my physician who said he would talk to them but she said they still would not fill pain meds for me. This is after getting them at this dose from them for the last two years? Am I overthinking it when I wonder if this is because I questioned them when I was shorted?
Any my advice is appreciated.
