Does any one know the real reason why we can't get our scripts filled I've heard so much from a truck load of roxis getting jacked to the DEA has shut down several plants I had another surgery several months ago and been taking oxycodone for years now since I lost my insurance its impossible to get an extended release I've been to over a hundred pharmacys in michigan its beyond ridiculous I called the manufactures and they say that they haven't stoped making them I know my Dr recieved a letter from the DEA last month stating if he is to prescribe oxycodone it has to acompany a er pain reliever please if anyone knows what's going on please let me know

I just got Medicaid two months ago and my pharmacist has put all my medications thru medicaid except for my oxycodone prescription. I asked why and was told medicaid does not cover it. I found out yesterday that it is covered by Medicaid. This pharmacist has charged me 4.50 a pill--675.00 everytime he filled my script. What can I do to get my money back. This is crazy. He is making money off of me and other patients that has medicaid. This price gouging is nuts. I can hardly put food on my table and he is living like a king.
I have stage 4 lung cancer and live in fl,and medicaid DOES pay for oxycodone.I do have problems where the pharm dosent have it,and i go to like 5 or 6 before i find one to fill it,but i usually get it done.I would call medicaid and get them on this guys ass.you could sue and get ALL your money back plus fees and court costs,and he could lose his license for lying.
this is ridiculous

If the DEA would go after the real problem,people wouldn't be having this problem.they need to shut down all these quack doctors,and these places that give fake MRI,but instead they have to cause problems for people with legitimate injuries
