I wet to my doc 7 days early because of running out early. I took my new script to pharmacy and said, this is early so I won't be using insurance. My doc said you can call him if necessary. Well no one wanted to. They filled two per day for three days. On the third day I asked to fill the rest on insurance for the next day. I was one day early. When I called the next morning to have my daily two filled the pharmacy manager said no we won't be filling it for another 5 days. Go to the ER for your withdrawals but don't come here because I won't give it to you. Has this happened to anyone else????

Jayb, suboxone doesn't work well for most people with chronic severe pain. I am glad that it works for your wife. There are a lot of drs that won't take a patient that has been prescribed suboxone for pain because it is mainly used for drug addiction maintance. If a dr prescribes suboxone for drug addiction, they have to attend special training and go by certain rules. If they prescribe suboxone for pain only they do not.

To the people saying suboxone isn't prescribed or made for pain that's absolutely false my wife is on suboxone not for drug addiction but for pain for her arthritis and it works well for her. So yes suboxone is used and can be used for pain I'm sure everyone is different so whether it would work for your pain or not depends on the person

There isn't a set fill date, it's entirely up to the pharmacist. There are really no federal laws that say when a pharmacist should or shouldn't fill a script...it also varies from state to state. I live in northwestern PA and the majority of pharmacies here won't fill your script of suboxone until 85% of your script is gone. I get 60 8/2mg strips and I can fill it every month on the 26th day ...so the 26th-30th is 5 days. Some people have commented that "well if you used it as prescribed you wouldn'tneed to fill it early" that's b.s." stuff happens I'm bipolar and I have real bad insomnia that lasts about two weeks give or take and if I'm up for 24 to 72 hours at a time I take an extra half at night when I'm up by myself with nothing to do that way I don't sit here and think about the things I use to do and then on the days my insomnia isn't bothering me I can get by on one to one and a half a day to balance the script out... I've never had to fill early but I can see how or why some people would need to... it doesn't excuse the ones that abuse it and run out early because they abuse them on purpose though. It's a waste anyways because of the ceiling effect. I know people that take way more then they should because they think they need it but it's just a waste the more you take the less it works in a sense you're just wasting doses. I will say I wish I lived in Australia for a 30 day script is only 25 that's crazy for my script of sixty 8/2mg strips it's 372 thats only because my home town pharmacy is the cheapest everywhere else is 400-600. Luckily I have here to help paying for it. FOR THOSE WITHOUT INSURANCE LISTEN GO AND GOOGLE HERE TO HELP program AND CALL THEM EVERY DOCTOR IN AMERICA IS ALLOWED THREE PATIENTS EVEN IF THE DOCTOR KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THE PROGRAM IT'S NOT UP TO THEM AND THEY DON'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT TELL THEM YOU HAVE NO INSURANCE AND YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING HERE TO HELP THEY WILL SEND YOU PAPERS FOR YOU AND DOCTOR TO FILL OUT AND THEY WILL NEED YOUR PROOF OF INCOME JOB OR UNEMPLOYMENT OR ANY OTHER way YOU EARN AND THEY WILL NEED YOUR MOST RECENT TAX RETURN. HAVE YOUR DOCTOR FAX ALL THE INFO TO HERE TO HELP WITHIN A COUPLE hours OF HERE TO HELP RECEIVING FAX UP TO 24 HOURS YOU WILL BE APPROVED AND CAN PICK UP YOUR SCRIPT FREE OF CHARGE FOR A YEAR AND AFTER A YEAR THEY WILL GIVE YOU AN EXTENSION. Sorry for the all caps but I wanted everyone who pays out of pocket for script to see this. Trust me its great, they will pay for a 30 day supply every month no charge to you at all. Its a suboxone program. It's worth it. Whether you get 15 a month or 90 a month they will pay for it. I know how frustrating it can be to not know if you can pay for your script or worry about how many you can afford and making them last so please call and they will help, they are very nice.

House that is where you are wrong, they do not work for us and you as you put it, first of all they work for them self then they work for the store.. definitely they do not work for you, besides by law they do have the right to refuse you your meds, especially when they see you are trying to get them before the due date, that is what gives them the idea that you are abusing your meds, if you have rough days then talk to your doctor explain that at times you might take another pill and ask if maybe instead of 30 if he can prescribe 35 for those days and that way you should not have any problems with your pharmacist. I've been on pain meds narcotics for over 5yrs and i used to have same problem with insurance not approving meds or anyother reason that at times i would go 1month without my meds. Then one day i was referred to a pharmacy names IWP since then I have no worries, i overnight the prescription in there provide prepaid envelope's and they overnight my meds to me by ups at my door. They handle all the paper work after one thing is they will not let you go without your meds. I give them a 10 for there cust service and there pharmacist which are all awesome.

What pharmacy does that? I'm on Duragesic and Dilaudid...go to Walgreens, and I'd probably slap someone for acting a Pharm God...but they know I'm a Bail Agent, and always fill my scripts later than the very first day they can get them filled. In also a Certified Addiction Specialist working in Opioid Addiction. When your there, early the first day you can fill them after calling and bothering them...THATS drug seeking behavior. They can report that to your Drs. Just letting you know!!!

I have done that. Just last week I was 6 days early so I paid cash for the 6 days. They had to call my doctor and he told them it was ok. On the 5th day I called to get them filled and the store filled them. CVS and walmart would have never did that.

I had a very rude pharmacist for years at my local Walgreens, then I discovered a small mom and pop pharmacy next door to my pain management building. Never any attitude, fills my script for morphine, norco etc. every 28 days no problem. Get away from the chain stores, they don't have a clue what it's like to deal with chronic pain!!! It's a shame how they treat us as customers. Same copay and much, much better service!!!Go small business!

Yes been to ER for Pain. Meds I must take having a pain pump just taken out of my body. I got no warnings. Just a bunch dishonesty and stories that did not make sense and when I questioned anything I got rudeness and was dismissed from the store. Now to date I have never been rude or disrespectful..but boy have these Pharmacies employees and most Pharmacists when questioned have treated me poorly in public. Would have been nice to be warned make arrangements for pets and I'm a care giver for my mother now because lack of family ect.Quite frankly I just got out after 60 days with MRSA from pain pump removal operation fighting for my life. I dont want to go back. Same response "go to the ER" and this would happen on the weekend .Uhgg..!.The day before they would say come back tomorrow. ..like its all okay and then tomorrow would be Saturday knowing can't get much done and I would get caught with the we don't have any of your prescriptions meaning both of them in stock and don't know when. You can't see your Doctor. ..so here goes one game " Go to the ER " Guess how the ER treats you there? It's not good at all and the Doctor there at ER has said to me on one visit..".Sure they told you to come here" In a very sarcastic way...Blew my mind since I was new to all of this game playing with lives and these Medical professionals seem to think it's funny, well withdrawals are NOT funny

No, you are reading it wrong! I have a hard time filling oxycodone and dilaudid at the local chain pharmacy's. They do treat you like a street thug! I'm not talking about filling early either...I'm talking the day I was released from the hospital with a neck brace and hospital tag on my wrist?

Tired of hearing ahhh, we're out, but will have some next Tuesday....or well, we only have 70 of your 180 script...ok can I get the remaining 110 next week. No, you'll need another Rx from your doctor. It is ridiculous!! They get you hooked, collect as much $$ and then kick you to the curb!

I consider myself lucky!! I've been through @ 7 surgeries in the past 15 years and I always get off the meds ASAP. I've been on for 2-3 years & get off for a couple years...round & round we go???

Cannabis does help me with minor pain management - a great fill-in for when I stop using opiates.....good luck all....I know it's a challenge every day!!

Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic opioid derivative of thebaine. It is a mixed partial agonist opioid receptor modulator that is used to treat opioid addiction in higher dosages, to control moderate acute pain in non-opioid-tolerant individuals in lower dosages and to control moderate chronic pain in even smaller doses.[3] It is available in a variety of formulations: Cizdol, Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail (available as buprenorphine HCl alone or buprenorphine and naloxone HCl (see buprenorphine/naloxone); typically used for opioid addiction), Temgesic (sublingual tablets for moderate to severe pain), Buprenex (solutions for injection often used for acute pain in primary-care settings), Norspan and Butrans (transdermal preparations used for chronic pain).[4]

Especially seeing that Opioid Addiction is now looked at as Chronic Medical Condition..
And Pharmacists, are NOT M.D.s....I don't care WHAT they think. Some of them let it get to their heads that they CONTROL the situation...Withdrawals and misery, or give him or her their meds.

Suboxone is not made to treat pain...like Methadone. Suboxone is a agonist/antagonist..Methadone is a full on Agonist, Schedule II, Synthetic Opioid, that's used for both opioid addiction, and pain management. It was originally created by Nazi Scientists in 1943 for treatment of pain, for the Allies had cut off their Poppy sources...and they called it Para-Codeine...

You MUST talk to your Dr. BEFORE the prescription runs out!! Don't wait till the last day and then scream about it. If they must, cut BACK on what you had left. The one guy this entire system of messages have come from is exhibiting over-usage AND drug seeking behavior. There are some pharmacies that could have kept the prescription, and called the Dr. if they feel drug seeking behavior is exhibited. Course it'd be hard to do seeing as the Dr. wrote the script himself...less it was a refill. Tennessee's gotten RIDICULOUS over this sorta s***. If a Dr. writes the scrip, and the patient says he's run out or the script has been changed....the Pharmacist should just fill it and keep their opinions to themselves...or that's MY opinion...especially with the way people take or steal people's drugs and such now days.
