my mom is on pain management well she normally gets darvocet for her pain well they asked her if she wanted to try vicodin so she did and did not work well she is going in to her apointment 10 days early and her doctor is giving her a brand new script for darvocet will her pharmancy be able to fill it even though shes 10 days early? its a totally diffrent kind of pain meds and its a brand new script its not a refill or anything like or will they make her wait?
They won't make you wait... in Illinois anyways, as I've flip flopped before, and they just assume that if the doctor sees the old med as being a risk, they'll ask for it to be given to the pharmacy for disposal, (or to the doctor) before the script can be filled, but really, this is rare, and only if you just got a bottle of 120, then decide to switch...
I'm not sure, but if this is a new prescription, and the Vicodin were not working, then she would not have a problem. I do not know about the Pain Management and couldn't say about that. If she still has Darvecet from last prescription then it may matter, but the Drug Store will know if it is too early to get her Meds. I have had this problem in the past and when given the a new prescription, early or not, I did not have a problem, but was not on Pain Management, so hope this helps and she receives what she needs! Good Luck!
Hi soulreaper, No your Mom won't have any problem getting her script filled at all. If the pharmacy has any questions, tell your Mom to tell the Pharmacist to call your doctor, but I don't see that happening if your Mom has been going to the same pharmacy all along. The insurance company will fill the script because it is for a different pain medication and it has been over 30 days since she had her last script of Darvocet filled. Don't worry, it will be fine... Good Luck...

I can only take Vicodin ES or Vicodin brand name. The generic versions have zero effect on me. I've?
