It took me days of searching to find a pharmacy to fill my oxycodone prescription. Every pharmacy would say the same thing "we only have enough for our regular patients". I finally found a walmart an hour away from my home to fill it and have been using them every month for six months. I'm a "regular patient". This month they didn't have my oxycodone because they said they ran out. Should they not reserve my medication since i'm a regular customer or were all the other pharmacies lying to me?

It is actually entirely up to the pharmacy, they are permitted to do either/or.

Every pharmacy is limited as to how much of any controlled substance they can order in and have in stock each month. Once they run out, they cannot order more and restock, until the following month.

Thus, some have adopted the policy of only filling such prescriptions for their regular customers and others do so on a first come, first served basis.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I'm sorry, I know this doesn't help your situation, I'm just informing you about how it works.

Have you informed your doctor of the situation? They may be able to prescribe an alternative medication for you.
