I just switched from Suboxone to Buprenorphine about a week ago. The day i got my script for 40 8mg bupe's, I could only afford to fill 20 at Wal-mart. I called today to have the rest refilled and they told me I needed to wait until the 17th!! I am leaving on wednesday to go to Ireland for 15 days. I used to get my Suboxone filled at King Soopers grocery store and break up the prescription: 8 pills the first day, then 10 or 12 the next... It was never a problem. Why are they denying me now? Whats the difference if I got the whole script filled at once or I break it up? The pharmacist said I need to call my doctor and have her call in the remaining 20 in order to get it filled today or tomorrow! What is going on!!!
it can depend what state u live in. that is legally your script and if they let u buy a portion of it then i believe they have to let you buy the rest. i think the pharmicist is being a jerk. callthe first place and ask them why they did it for u and if its legal, see if u can transfer the prescription but i dont think u can, but find out the law if its on your side go to the regional manager of pharmacy for walmart and complain. i literally have grabbed scripts out of pharmacists hands because they say its a day early and wont fill it and i will pay cash and they say no. that is your script nit theirs if they let u pay for some then i do believe they r obligated to have the rest filled. i do it all the time and no problem in massachusetts.I would go into walmart get the pharmicist and tell him u r going to report him to the licencing board, call the manager ofvthe srore over and then make a stink they dont like scenes u dont have to yell just say i need my medication believe me they dont like scenes.let me know how u make out and never go back there.
