Recently, I have hurt my shoulder some how and am going thru physical therapy. My doc gave me a script for Lortab 5 4 times a day which is 60 and is a 15 day supply. I got my Lortab 5 filled on 10/12 so I can fill it again on 10/26. I got my last 7.5 Norco filled on 09/23 and should be able to fill it on 10/23 but my pharmacy is saying that since i got the lortab 5 filled i can't get the norco filled until the 27th of october. Since this is two different scripts and two different doses shouldn't i still be able to get my norco filled on the 23 since it has been 30 days since the last refill and get the lortab 5 filled on 10/26 since it will be 15 days since the last refill?

They are both hydrocodone so that is why they are not filling it. Did the same Dr give you both scripts? The pharmacy would have to get an override from the Dr to fill both scripts saying that it is ok for you to be taking both strengths. If you are filling them from 2 different Drs, they (the pharmacy)will probably notify each of them that you are getting scripts from both and you could technicaly get into trouble for Dr shopping so be aware. One or both Drs could refuse to write pain meds for you if you are filling from both. You probably need to decide to take one or the other strength and be sure, if you have two different Drs, that they each know you are getting scripts from each of them. Usually they prefer that you get all pain meds from only one Dr.

These meds are both the same,that may be why pharm will not fill. Also,most states post on the computer what,how much amd when u fill scripts for narcotics,so be careful,u could get cut off ur meds if the dr. gets wind of this,,by law,u r to obtain narcotics from 1 doctor only. I know here im Vegas,when I go for my monthly ck up to paim climic,he pulls my med chart up right in fromt of me,,shows what scripts I have filled,,where filled and if I was at the Er for breakthru pain relief. I hope u get things worked out,,last thimg u need is to have a hard time getting ur paim meds.
