Fu ck the DEA. When did these cops become doctors? Why in the he ll are we letting police dictate what we put into our bodies? If someone is selling narcotics, bust them and send them to prison. I have cancer. And I cant find narcotic pain meds in south Florida. Thank you DEA! Dont you fu ck ing morons realize that making drugs hard to find is only going to create a more broad black market? Prices will soar and eventually people who are DEPENDENT on opiates will turn to the very easily accessible HEROIN. The Mexican mafia has been moving tons of tar heroin into the southern United States. And when little Oxy addicted Johnny cant find 80's......Jose will be right there with a tenth of tar for the taking.
Wise up DEAssholes!!! Making legitimate patients out to be criminals is only making MORE CRIMINALS!!!!
This Agency was set-up during the reign of Tricky Dick Nixon, the fruit doe'st fall far from the tree. In 1973 the mighty DEA was defacatted on the American public. There needs to be more like you who resist them! Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

I'm sorry your having trouble filling your needs...
I'm a true pain patient that visits the hospital once a month ...not a clinic.
When I had trouble filling my oxycodone at CVS my neurologist had the in hospital pharmacy order my medicine. No problem besides adjusting the mg and dosage.
Try giving your surgeon a call and make em aware of your situation. And yes I live in broward county and know what "Roxy 30s" and "mills" have done to make it mission impossible to fill at a chain pharmacy.

I am curious how the obviously "high" ppl, dealers, and abusers are getting so easily, most of the time i wait until my insurance covered pharmacy and my 30 day supply sometimes can be stretched but the one time i needed it filled because i couldnt walk, i even tried to borrow the money so i could get them filled and STILL couldnt and i have no history of abuse, dr shopping or pharmacy shopping plus the severity of my illnesses, i know no one should of had any issues, but within a day a know user/abuser who couldnt even keep his eyes open was able to fill ALL of his rx that were 1. Way more than necessary on top of like 6rx know for causing overdose issues when mixed! WTF
