I work as a pharmacy tech in a major pharmacy. There is pressure from the Tn State board to decrease the sale of "controlled substances" or the resale of pain medications. Because the state CAN'T control the drug epidemic they have put it on the "local pharmacies" It is up to each pharmacist to decide if they feel that the prescription/diagnosis is legit. MOST pharmacy just tell people that they don't have them. Just because you have a "pain contract" doesn't mean 100% of the people are legit. If you want to be pissed at somebody - be mad at the drug abusers/dealers. I am not implying that you fall into that category. Most pharmacy don't recognize "pain clinics" due to the fact that for the right price you can get a Dr to write a prescription for anything. I could list 20 things that tip pharmacy's off to if the RX is legit but don't want to bore you with that.
Here's my advice - if your Dr is on the "good list" (yes we have a list) have he or she call the local pharmacy - answer our questions, establish "your" need for such a high quantity of the medication and explain why you need all the different pain meds your requesting. From that most pharmacies will make notes in your file, look you up in the national database to make sure your not "pharmacy shopping/hopping" and then work with you to get your medication on a regular basis.
Here's just a tip for most:
1) Don't refer to medication by there street name 2) If you have Tenncare or some other Gov't insurance, don't whip out $600 in cash to pay for "YOUR" pain meds
3) Don't come in looking like you "tweeking" or in dyer need of a "fix"
Good luck....

They are almost all liers. Most of them skim a few pain pills out of each prescrition. It may be just a couple but at the end of the day it adds up to a bunch. Wallgreens in Fountain City had a couple of girls doing this. They in turn would give them to their husbands to sell. Nice world we live in when thos jerks at Walgreens are drug addicts.

Please post the 20 things... I'm curious why I was turned away from Food City last week after being a customer for over 3 years... I'm in my 50s, same doctor I've always had, have insurance, 3 other meds besides the pain meds, but was simply told "we're out." No help calling another location, nothing except rudeness...
