Walgreens knows best and how the DEA has increased their own war on drugs!!!!
In an effort to curb pill mills and drug abuse Walgreens has issued a new policy that people filling prescriptions there are subject to the pharmacy calling your doctor to make sure he made the right choice.

"This process, the company says, “may, at times,
require” the pharmacist to contact the
prescribing doctor to make sure the diagnosis,
the exact billing code, the expected length of
therapy and “the previous medications/
therapies tried and failed” are correct."

Although I am not a big pharma supporter it irritates me to no end that average people now are turning to the streets to get the pain management they seek. Doctors are afraid of the DEA already. So I can only imagine what Walgreens new policy means for many Americans who can't get codeine otc as other places can.

It seems like the more they tighten up on dispensing, the abuse levels rise.

The DEA usually targets doctors that are big time drug pushers. There is no fear for a doctor to prescribe pain killers to those who truly need them. Its all a sham.

Only 300,000 new heroin addicts for their trouble. Way to go DEA and Walgreens!
It's a nightmare for people in chronic pain. Even the legit patients have to suffer for months or years before doctors will (or lose 20% of body weight like me). Pharmacies give them a hard time too even if you've been going to them for years.
Pills mills and heroin are signs of another problem - pain. People will do whatever it takes to make it stop.

USA doctors must be trained in pain management before they can write for any opiates and very few are. Obamacare is pushing more specialists of which there are too few already. I can guarantee you heroin use will only continue to grow.

I would rather have my primary doctor write all my prescriptions. There is no need to see countless doctors for each and every ailment.

Doctors can prescribe anything in the USP (pharmacopeia) and for any reason.

Very few do anymore due to the scare tactics. I know of many people, myself included... Who are/ were directed towards specialist. It seems it may be a bigger issue depending on your state. This is a huge problem not only for pain patients, but as well as people with chronic anxiety who don't do well with ssris and antidepressants that they love to dole out. The medications that actually have potential are never given here. (In the states). While there are natural alternatives otc... Not everyone gets relief from them. But none of this surprises me since they want drug abuse sky high.

My DR made me / his patients sign a form that we will NOT get our RXs filled at Walgreens, CVS, or Walmart.
