Any doctor can refuse to refill any prescription at any time, especially a narcotic pain reliever. Sadly this is true, even if your dad is in pain.
It would behoove your father to get a referral to a Pain Management Doctor, so ask for that, don't let your dad do what is called "doctor shopping" because he may be flagged as a drug seeker, since Norco is a narcotic pain reliever.
I wish you and your dad the best,
Yes his doctor can refuse to refill his prescription. Especially if it is a narcotic, which this is , and he feels that he may be abusing it. I know this doesn't seem fair and it may not be right and it seems cruel especially if he is in pain but they have the right to do this.
