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????

Your pharmacist can only fill it two days early, at their discretion, they dont have to do it if they dont want to. Yes there is something your dr can do. He can fill out a form called a TAR which explains why you need the medication early, and if the insurance oks that, which they usually do, your pharmacist will have to fill it. Because its a controlled substance you can only pick it up two days early, and only if the pharmacist is a decent person who will go ahead and do it for you, they dont have to.

I don't think anyone believed her story....it's as shonky as "the dog ate my homework"....she is obviously still in that using mindset and in my opinion, that's the best part of being clean, is not having to constantly think up lies and bullsh*t to spin to people, whether it be your family, doctors or your pharmacist.

Well for one bro. Or sis....I would advise you not leaving them anywhere a damn kid can get to em. Thankfully it wasn't the tablets because if your kids away from you long enough to chuck your rx, then they could have eaten two, and you'd have a dead kid. So be more responsible. No seriously I'm not talking down to you. But come on. My kid threw em away? That's as good as they fell in the toilet. I'd bet money you're the type who walks into a pharmacy and says, can I cash this script here? It ain't a damn scratch ticket people. You FILL a prescription. Not cash a script in. Damn, I'm on subs. My brother, father and I own a pharmacy. Addiction doesn't discriminate. But you really made yourself look stupid even letting the Dr know you'd leave a child alone in a room with access to f'ing suboxone. Right there he's gonna look at you like WHAT??? So from a pharmacy owners point of view, go to the police station. Report the medicine gone, then take the police report to the Dr. He'll have no problem. You take a copy of the report to the pharmacy with you and they'll help you out. Otherwise it's probably don't bother even trying because pharmacists suck and think they're better than everyone. Your already judged by them the moment you fill an rx for subs.

This is the most honest post I've read! Good for you and you betcha it gives you your life back. Screw every ***** or judgmental hypocrite out there. It's just sad that people have to be humiliated and almost stripped of any dignity just to get through this life! I say it's too bad liquor isn't data based controlled...more people may think twice before high browing people.

It took me about three months of picking up daily and doing twice weekly urine anaylsis before my clinic would let me go on to monthly pick-up's...SO worth it though as I get to pick up at a chemist, they are lovely, speak to me like a human being and ask about my kids, job, life in general. I find if you act like a junkie, carrying on and making a scene, then you will get treated like a junkie...I know people here who are still using, so thats why they will NEVER stop having to pick up daily, yet they whinge as if it;s the system that's got the problem....so ungrateful and stupid. Still living like drug addicts, they should be booted off the system if they are not providing clean urines. Just my opinion though. I truly believe Suvboxone saved my life, so I am not going to jeapordise that by still using drugs.

I don't think they'll run out because they now have a lot of people who lives have been saved. But I do worry that some States are going to run out . my place has people there who don't take them.. Hum! Also who abuse them, unfortunately.

What you are doing is how I STOPPED my first and only time. Sucks I relapsed after 89 days. But I do now take less, stash the rest and switch up the next month. Not many people where I'm at get monthly, you have to do so much before that. I made it! Now going to start coming down.

I believe I need to get off of them also. The state controls your dosage and I do not like anything having control over me, but they have saved my life! I took them at first for opiate withdrawal and then pain. I have been on them for around 8 yrs. or so.

Hey there, Oh me too, have been off for 7 years and tried many times to detox but it's just too hard....WAY harder than coming off opiates, that takes a week or two. I have heard of withdrawals from Suboxone lasting a year....obviously not the hard core symptoms but still just feeling yucky. This stuff saved my life too. I don't even drink, smoke or do anything anymore and I truly believe I have Suboxone to thank for this, however I would love to be off it. I just can't imagine myself as a 60 or 70 year old being on it...I'm 42 now...but can't see myself coming off it anytime soon either. Best of luck to you. By the way I am in Australia and from what I have heard we have it pretty good here, I pick up monthly (28 days worth) and I only pay $25. I have heard it's much more expensive in US??

The expiration is a year but honestly it is probably years before it would lose even some of it's potency if any if stored in a cool dry place air sealed in its original packaging. But smart idea to rotate and stock pile. The pharmaceutical companies I honestly don't believe will ever run short on the ingredients for fear of the loss of Revenue. However due to the growing number of people that are on it the day will most definitely come where the government and the FDA start making it difficult to get just like they did with pain medication. I personally have been on it for probably 3 or 4 years and am desperate to get off of it but too scared to attempt it mainly because I truly believe it saved my life. Best of luck.

I am stockpiling my suboxone...I am scared that with the increasing numbers of people taking it that there will one day be a shortage. Am I the only person worried about this? I worry that the manufacturers will run out of the ingredients, that there will be a shortage, I think about it all the time!!! Therefore, I take the minimum amount I can get away with and stockpile the rest. They expire though, so be careful about that. I make sure that every month when I pick up (I pick up a month's worth at a time) that I then use up the older ones and save the newer ones. They have about a six month shelf life I think.

I hate to tell you but pharmacies in ohio run something called Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS) which is a tool to track the dispensing and personal furnishing of controlled prescription drugs to patients. OARRS is designed to monitor this information for suspected abuse or diversion. I don't now where you live but I think it's in every state? They can see what you fill and how much. I have been on suboxone since 2010 for chronic pain and I get treated like dirt by some pharmacies but I report them to the medical board and I have had 2 pharmacists fired! That's right! I recorded what they said on my phone and had them say their names and spell it...lol! They were not so cocky after I started playing the recording back for them to hear! They about s*** themselves trying to back peddle their way out of the trouble I was going to cause for them. I am 59 years old and I have had serious surgeries and health problems and my pain specialist knows my history of addiction, which I was sober for 16 years before I had a heart attack, but treats me like a human being who has actual pain, not an addict. When I was in my rehab I was in there with both doctors and pharmacists that became addicted just like any other addict. Not that they woke up one day and said "today I think I shall become an addict" it just happens to the best of us before we realize it. These doctors and pharmacists that judge us patients trying to stay sober should have to go thru the same rehab we have been thru to see how hard we work to get sober and stay sober and then maybe, just maybe, they wouldn't discriminate against us or anyone? Good luck to you, God bless.

Jerry, just to set the record straight, I was talking generally. Secondly, I have no wish to come and live in that bottomless pit of waste that you call the United States of America. No thanks. You can have that ALL to yourself sunshine. But, hey if my comments hit home to you, maybe they were directed at you????

That is f'ed up. I also live in Florida, but, I'm no rookie. My Dr won't even try to help me, not even if my meds were stolen by a robber and there is a police report. There is a sign in the office. He won't even ask the pharmacy to do anything because it would put him in jeopardy. Now, the pharmacists are all of a sudden more knowledgeable than a doctor. Give me a break.

Your prescription always comes home unless your place is a daily for IOP… Google Suboxone doctors in my area and you will find them also put for free because there are many that are free as well…

Some pharmacies back in the day put a sign on their from door simply stating "NO OXY"..it follows that these days some pharmacies would not carry suboxone/subutex. it is completely up to the owner or pharmacist in charge what products they stock and what drugs they will not stock. simply business. other reasons range from..Yes keeping "those people" out of their businesses. armed robberies of pharmacies for narcotics are not uncommon as well as burglary potential. In some parts of the country large voting groups simply do not want or appreciate the .gov in their business period..other locales want and appear to need extensive government involvement at any level in their lives..I live near an Indian reservation and the off reservation town that serves as accommodating their overflow population..these ppl are completely dependent on federal state county and tribal governments in order to be housed..receive special services..monitored..policed..and generally taken care of. I tend to need minimal government oversight in my livelihood..my business operation among other things..perhaps you could ask at your local social services or designated non profit agency who will fill your box script..it's entirely possible you could even receive a voucher if you find the proper people.
