Scoliosis In Need Says:

My PM MD just prescribed Oxycontin 15mg 3x to replace the too-many hydro & oxycodone pills I've been taking for severe back/hip pain. Just saw a UM surgeon who says surgery is not an option; its scoliosis and arthritis. Anyway, I've called over 10 pharmacies, including CVS and Wal-Green 24 hr. locations - and NOBODY has any Oxycontin. Having to call all over the place makes you feel like a degenerate junkie - when you mention the drug the phone goes silent. I'm simply trying to find relief and stop killing my liver! Anyone know why there is such a shortage?

He Who Called CVS Says:

There is a policy in S. Fl where many pharmacies do NOT stock OXY. They will order it for a patient, and while the first fill may suffer a delay of a few days, thereafter they can reorder it in advance of your refill. CVS states that the stores do not stock it for safety reasons; makes sense - junkies won't hold them up if they don't carry it. Good luck!

If you're calling them, you're also not going to get an accurate answer on whether or not they actually have them in stock. They have no way of knowing if a voice on the phone is a legitimate customer in need, or a potential thief and due to the very high risk of theft, they will just tell you that they don't carry them, or don't have them in stock. That's why the phone goes silent for a moment, you are asking for a very dangerous, controlled substance.

The only way to get an accurate answer is to actually go into the pharmacy, with your prescription in hand.


Are there any comments or questions?

This is true. By law, the pharmacy will not tell you if they have them or not. I have gone through the same BS with Roxycodone. It IS a #$% but you just have to drive around until you find one that has it and has enough. The DEA has made getting a script filled almost impossible!! Once you find the right one, REMEMBER it. Good luck my friend. Wish they would pay for our gas..LOL
