    When I first realized all prescribed items were tracked in a shared database around 2008 I stopped asking for prescriptions from my Dr unless I had lost an arm or if it was something major.

    It was not so much that they tracked things but I read online that Dr's often look at the list and then may decide you have an addiction risk and so they wont prescribe anything narcotic in some cases even when you really have an urgent need.
    Along the lines of others posts/experiences in this thread.

    Glad I am not alone in my paranoia.

    my ear nose throat doctor brought up my records (all prescription records from all prescribers) on his computer in the ear cleaning chair and then had me select the doseage of meds i wanted him to prescribe


    uhhhhhhh

    invasion of my privacy much?

    all doctors/nurses can do this

    nurses can do it in place of the doctor or for the doctor..

  5. Where I live yes they see every prescription you take. I think it's fine, now I don't have to write everything down for every appointment with a specialist I have to see, I have nothing to hide. :-)

  7. Yeah I was definitely surprised when an addictions counselor Pulled all my scripts, including a recent Ambien script.

    Made me feel pretty stupid, as I had never mentioned Ambien during my "assessment."

    They actually didn't seem to really care. I think once you are a member of their "club," you are good to go. Even if there are questionable meds. As long as you stay honest from then on.

    Hope this helps!

    PS: don't be fooled into believing if you pay cash vs insurance you won't hit the database--doesn't matter--it gets reported no matter!
    This is a good idea, but maybe say You got confused and didn’t realize he had prescribed pain meds you were expecting something else, and when you realized what had happened you put them aside”. Saying you didn’t know Doctor shopping wasn’t allowed is conceding you were trying to score more pain meds in the first place. Probably won’t go over that well

  9. anyone in the know have detailed information on this subject? as it used to be certain states only etc etc. haven't seen any specifics in a whille.

    In NY here its almost if not impossible to get a doctor to write a script for this hydro 5/325mg. My MRI's show nothing left in my spine, and shows the bone spurs everywhere, but they want the pain management facilities used instead which do not work on the real spinal column.

    The last time I was at the doctor they had a record of every time I filled a medication at the pharmacy. There is no such thing as medical privacy anymore. That is why I get most of my meds online from overseas, except my maintenance meds.

    My doctor has records of what he gave me for a prescription but the drug stores are the ones that know what I have filled for prescriptions. I went in 2 days early to get my prescription at the drug store and they told me I have too wait two more days until I can fill my script. If it’s nothing important, they won’t bother you. But if something for anxiety , they will make me wait for it on the exact date.

  13. It might be different from state to state or my doctors don't check. The only time they've been able to see what I take is if I give them my pharmacy that fills prescriptions. I think if they saw what one doctor prescribed the other wouldn't prescribe what they do (or in some cases the same thing). Still seems like a lack of privacy since some prescriptions you might not take or you might go to a different doctor for a second opinion.

  14. I was wondering about this but I don't think they're interconnected in Ireland yet ????

    They may not have bothered to look before...but with opioid crack down that seems to be changing big time.

  16. #175
    Glad I am not the only one that has been told it’s too soon to fill that one. I changed insurance companies one year and had to see a different Dr from another hospital and they were linked to the other hospital.

    Hey all,

    Last month when I saw my provider at the pain clinic she told me which days I could pick up my meds, she always does. They become fillable on different days of the month due to changes in meds. Anyhow I always pick up a couple on the same day as my appointment every month, which was like a Tuesday/Wednesday & I could pick up the remaining on that Saturday. The day I went to PM then to the pharm they also said the remaining 1, I could pick up on Saturday.

    Saturday rolls around & I go in to get it & they now won't give it to me. They say you can't pick this up until tomorrow. I was like HUH?? I went thru the whole story of what my provider told me, what they also originally told me just days before & the guy gets flumbled, starts looking thru his computer & tells me it's too early, you picked it up on the 8th of last month. I looked at him funny & said that can't be correct. He fumbles around on the computer some more, looking at me like "Uhhh, duh derp I dunno".

    I knew I did not pick it up on the 8th last month & remembered picking it up on the 8th the month before last. I thought I picked it up on the the 6th of last month which would've made picking it up that Saturday 30 or 31 days from the previous month so there should've been NO problem.
    Told them this too. So as I'm saying "This makes no sense to me, my own Docs office said to pick this up Saturday which is today, there's nothing written on the script that says I cannot pick it up today, I have to pay cash for it so it can't be an insurance issue AND it wasn't like I was asking for an early refill of a week or 2, it was A DAY". Also I take my meds as scribed & knew something wasn't right.
    I asked if there was anything written on my script that said I couldn't pick it up that day. I knew there wasn't but was trying to get to the bottom of what was going on.
    He tells me "No but it doesn't say you can pick them up today either." Again, I'm like WTF?? Do they ever? Why would my doc write a script for me to pick up on a certain date/day then??


    So I get back home to look at the bottle to see if I had by chance possibly messed up, lost my mind or something.....and it shows that I had actually picked it up on the 5th!! A day earlier than I even thought!
    My own flipping pharm that I've been w/for 3+ yrs now, never picked anything up early, straight up LIED to me! So I had to go almost 2 days w/o something that I need daily.

    I saved the bottle & brought it back to the pharm & showed it to the same guy who checked me out that day. As I was standing there talking to him 1 of the actual pharmacists came up behind him & whispered something in his ear. Call me paranoid but I'm pretty sure it was about me.
    He couldn't think of 1 thing to say to me after I asked him if he recalled the conversation we had less than 2 days ago as I showed him the bottle proving I picked it up on the 5th, not even the 6th like I thought. He was utterly speechless, literally had not 1 word. Worst part is not just going the almost 2 days w/o the med but I was NOT picking it up early, I was picking it up on the correct day, or trying to anyways.

    I do not understand how they can pull this crap! I read in another thread here, can't remeber which 1, that most all major pharms now have some rating or scoring system, forgot what it's called, that rates you by how many scripts you have &/or how many of certain types of meds you have & if you have enough of these certain types of meds that score/rate you high enough they pull rank & decide whether or not to fill your scripts &/or when they will give them to you. EVEN if your own doc/provider writes it to pick up on a certain day.

    FWIW I use Fred Meyer/Kroger pharmacy. I'm pissed. I do everything asked of me, I NEVER fill early because my provider won't write scripts for people to allow it! Don't we get enough of this crap from Doctors & the Govnmt??
    Adding to this.... I also am unable to drive right now so am reliant on medical transport or getting a family member to drive me. This made me feel like I was some bottom feeding lowlife. I have physical & health issues that cause me many issues & prevent me from doing much of anything & thats w/the little bit of meds I even get!

    I've thought about asking to speak w/the head pharmacist about all of this but am scared it will make me more of a mark. I've never had this happen to me before. I feel violated of my right to have some privacy, live the best I can which unfortunately requires me taking certain meds. Do I like it NO but just like my thyroid meds I have to take daily I also have to take the others so my body functions. Not sure what I'm going to do w/this yet.

    Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays & doing well. Take care,
    SP

  18. Was this your usual pharmacist? I can tell you that the fact that you are paying in cash sets off a red flag in the system. If it’s a new pharmacist or someone not familiar with you they can and sometimes do flex their authority and will make you wait. That’s what it sounds like to me. I use the same pharmacy every month and all of my scripts are by the same doctor and have been for years. Every once in awhile I will have issues with a new guy. I just wait until the long time pharmacist that knows me is in and deal with him. He was particularly helpful when every month I would have to wait several days on them to get a shipment in for my migraine medication. Insurance sets very strict here’s how many you can have per x dates. You can’t fill until then so having to wait an additional several days kept putting me out of meds. I finally just had a conversation with the main one who just started ensuring they had them in stock because I came every month for the same thing. No issues after that. It pays to have a good relationship sometimes

    Like Qtrgirl said, cash at pharmacies raises red flags. It’s ridiculous. I used to go to big chains (CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid) and they all gave me the “it’s too early run around” and questioned doctors’ diagnoses. I wasn’t aware that pharmacists spent years going to med school and doing residencies. I know they know meds (most of them) but they don’t know me and my body. I switched to a mom and pop pharmacy recommended by my own PCP and it’s been such a good experience. What they lack in convenience they certainly make up for with compassion and trust.

  20. I should have mentioned that pharmacists have a lot of discretion on whether they will fill drugs on certain dates. I’ve had a few occasions where I’ve had a new pharmacist refuse to fill certain RXs. They have even contacted my doctors office who gave them permission but still refused. Your doctor may have said you can pick up meds on this date but the pharmacist is under no obligation to fill them on that date. I try to stick to the same pharmacy but I did take an RX to CVS one time after a root canal. It was next to my dentist office and I was already hurting. I sat and waited and was then told there was an issue with my dentists office and they were waiting in a call. They wouldn’t give me any more info. I drove back to the dentists office who said they never got a call but called right then and there. CVS flagged my RX and never actually called because the city database (my state doesn’t have one) showed my rx for tramadol. Dentist then says I can’t authorize RX and has to cancel it. That was one painful weekend. CVS knew that was the reason my RX was held but blamed my dentist instead of just being honest and telling me rx was flagged. I was severely pissed and have not been back to that pharmacy or that dentist. I can’t stand being labeled a drug seeker.
