Walgreens and Cvs in Tampa FL are not carrying oxycodone or dilaudid. Most pharmacys will fill for cash. I am disgusted.

Walgreens pharmacy manager just told me that they will only fill opiate perscriptions from pain management dr's for a maximum of 6 months.

I really can't blame you for being so frustrated with this whole situation going on in Florida. The number of patients in the entire state who are going through this, only appears to be rising rather quickly.

Is this the case too, with 'Mail Order' services through Walgreens or CVS?

I wouldn't be surprised if many pain patients left the state of Florida just to make life a little easier.

I went to Walgreen's as well as a host of others and they said the manufacturer is backordered on thm. My scrip is from a pain mgmt Dr. Not sure what else to try as here in FL they are cracking down on opiates. I am having both spine surgery and a full hysterectomy done and cant get pain medication thanks to these idiots coming here and going to the pill mills and getting tons of pills go back home to where they live and sell them for big bucks. Just pisses me off.

I live in brandon, have been w/ walgreens and been on dilaudid 8 for 3 yrs. Then out of no where in june I couldn't find anyone to fill them. Everywhere I went either didn't fill them, said they were on back order or would fill for any new patients. This month I found a shady compounding place to fill them for me but it cost $600 cash only. I hope the crap gets figured out soon. These ppl don't realize they're doing more harm then good rt now.

Wow 600 bucks is nuts. I paid $2.60 for a scrip of 150, 8mg through my part D drug program with Cigna. I just mailed the scrip to the mail order pharmacy abd had them 5 days later.

I have been to 50 CVS Walgreens and several small pharmacies and NO ONE has a single Oxycodone 30mg to fill my script! I live in the Tampa Bay area and have driven over 200 miles since Tuesday and can't fill my script. I'm flipping out. Can anyone please tell me what the heck is going on?

kelly Says:

See if your prescription plan has a mail order pharmacy. If they do all you need to do is mail the scrip to them and they mail it back with a confirmation signature required. I send my in a priority mail envelope also signature required. I don't like sending a schedule 2 drug in the mail. It costs $5.45 for that and then my copay of $2.60. So not bad for under 10 bucks no hassle and I get my Dilaudud 8mgs.

FrustratedCPP Says:

I'm having the same problem, yet a drug dealer can fill at CVS in Kissimmee and sell his pills for $25.00 each. What is wrong with this system?? I'm so mad that the drug dealers are getting C!! prescriptions filled at the chain pharmacies and CPP are suffering terribly!!

My Aim is Truth Says:

This is the worst month ever trying to find my medicine. I am not sure what in the world is going on??? Have been to same stores twice a day, gone to other side of town, and on top of this, trying to work and take care of my loved ones. Does anyone know what the deal is with the specific month??? I broke down and cried after the 100th time I left my local pharm with a "sorry, we still have not gotten our order in yet!" These pharmacists think it's ground hog day when they see me. I want to cry. Had to cancel my scheduled surgery because of this HORRIBLE situation, too. Hoping my surgery will help the pain and can be done with this time filled predicament! Lengths people will go to... one example: saw a woman today with a cane, back brace, knee brace, and neck brace on. A little overdone, you think? Cracks me up.

If you have more problems getting them see what pharmacy your health plan has designated for mail order. I am disabled from multiple reasons. 1 is Fibrmyagia. I am in pain 24/7. I have Dilaudid 8mg from a real Dr. Not a pill mill. I use tele-med in PA. My medicare ins uses that pharmacy from mail order. Takes 5-6 days to get them. You mail scrip un and the send is back signature requird so it will not wind up in the wrong hands. This works for me. I hope you can do the dame. I moved to Florida from Maine in April and hply crap I have never seen anything like it in my life. I went to over 30 pharmacies and I was like screw it and called my ins co and they told me about the mail order. Was like cool. Good luck and God speed.

I tried the mail-order idea. I had my doctor write a script for a 3-month supply (this is what the Humana mail-order company said they do), and sent the script to them. I made sure I sent the script early enough to get the pills on time, since they said it would take 10-14 business days to get them to me. After about ten days, I called to check status, and they told me they were SENDING MY SCRIPT BACK! I asked why? They informed me that Florida has a law that forbids opiates to be delivered by mail--and Florida is the ONLY state with such a law!!! I was ready to blow a gasket! Thankfully, my doctor wrote me a new script right away and I was preparing for a repeat nightmare of visiting 100 pharmacies without luck, but what do you know--the very first Walgreens I tried filled it! Go figure! But Florida really needs to do something, because the people with real pain problems are getting hosed!

fallenangel Says:

Yes and so we who really suffer, because pain has caused me to want to just end it,and i'm by far am not a hopeless person with nothing to live for, in fact with pain management I can do almost, everything I want. This does mean I cant nor do I want to jump aroung, or kickbox which my body would want a death wish. It pisses me off to for those of us who really suffer. Hope these idots dont lump us all together an if we are being trated by A pain clinic they obviously need to fill anything we have to have for me to even move.

thacodin a day. I am thankfull and happy about this after 2years of going straight without anything but tramadol. It's so true. so thankful as I haven t been too tempted i'm getting my meds getting MScontin and Vicodin. I think maybe ocycodone 30' are automaticly red flagged. Maybe you may have to try oother drugs besides 30 mg oxy IR, my pain docs in Colorado are being advised by DEA to put "a chronic pain patient" on an ER and a max of 3-4 breakthrough, if the breakthrough is not working then the dose of the ER will/should be increased. Just my thoughts and what I kniow about FL and their problems with oxy 30, im in CO and not many ppl get 30mg they'll try oxycontin (oxycodone Er, or cr), even if the patient has been on the 30's for a decade

Nazda Says:

I've been reading all of the posts about people in Florida having trouble filling oxycodone and other C11 scripts. I live in California, and the Walgreens here will not fill any narcotics prescriptions either. Apparently this is now a nation wide problem. I am a Kaiser patient and have been on oxycodone tabs and dilaudid injections for 7 years, for a ruptured disk in my back. I've been on this medication for so long because my doctor refuses to let me have it surgically repaired. As of Jan 1, 2014, my doctor cut off ALL of my pain meds and said I will basically have to live with the pain. So, it sounds like it's not just the pharmacies that are cracking down on the use of narcotics for people who truly need them, but some of the HMO's are jumping on the band wagon as well.

Hire or call an attorney. Morgan and Morgan OUT OF TAMPA ARE FIGHTING FOR THE CANNABIS LAW BEING PASSED. WHEN MY TIME COMES And IT IS ALMOST HEAR I AM GOING TO THEM AND I DO NOT SMOKE CANNABIS. SO FOR ALL YOU DRUGGIE'S WHO CAME TO FLORIDA TO GET YOUR OXY AND WHAT EVER EALSE ! And NOT EVEN LIVING IN THIS STATE. YOU SCREWED ALL THE TRULY SICK PEOPLE. I HAVE A LIST. I WILL FIGHT OR DIE IN THE HOSPITAL. So if you can't get your Medicine go to the hospital, go in by ambulance if you have to. I just for see total REBELLION IN 50 state, and it makes me sad. I also think if your MD is doing this he should ween you off. but the reason he is not going to get sued because he gave you a scrip and you felt safe and he covered his bottom! See a lawyer. And I don't work for Morgan and Morgan. I am also in chronic pain don't do the surgery. They failed to tell me they have to cut nerves in your back to get to your spin. The spasms are awful, to the point of vomiting sometimes. And I an tuff. I lost a lot. Prayer has helped me from committing suicide.
