A really good friend of mine came home yesterday from the Doctors office and they would not prescribe him narcotics due to him being on some "Dr's Narcotics List". I was like WTF, he asked me since I know everything......lol:):) if I knew anything about this list??? I don't, never heard of it.. Anyone know of anything like this, now I'm curious??? Thanks

My State has a database of all prescriptions. Only doctors can prescribe narcotics and after a certain amount you have to get referred to a Pain specialist. A Pharmacist can see if someone is on the narcotics list and refuse to fill the script. This was done to prevent users from doctor shopping for their narcotics or from making copies of the script and getting multiple pharmacies to fill it.

They keep track where I live. One of my high school classmates had a come apart in the middle of Wal Mart pharmacy because he was denied more pain pills. He was whacked out on them & having some type of withdrawals or something. Idk how all that works, not my thing.

One of our rescue dogs is on whatever the generics for Xanax and Prozac are to keep her from biting some of the others. Scripted by our DVM, we can get a supply for a certain # of months, and then get authorized refills for the balance of the year until the DVM wants to reevaluate at the one year mark.

In the past, before we knew better, we sometimes tried getting an authorized refill ONE day early just because it was more convenient for us to be near that drugstore that day than the next.

We were denied a few times until we learned how to play the game by the rules ... the same computerized records rules the pharmacists also must follow. Common sense and allowing a little wiggle room do not get factored in.

Wow, strange. I know the pharmacies and doctors talk electronically to keep things honest and protect against doctor shopping. But an actual do not prescribe list? That's nuts. Even if somebody had had a problem with pills in the past, what if they were dying of cancer or went into the hospital because they chopped a finger off? No meds? Seems like an overreach to put somebody n a list like this.

Maybe the doctor is looking for a reason not prescribe? Just a guess.

My doctor gives me Vicodin and I've never had issues. Except one time I was leaving the US and wouldn't be back for 2 weeks. Then the pharmacy wanted proof of my international itinerary to dispense the medication earlier than normal.
