OMG! I got back to my condo (I have two residences-long story) and had a message from the pharmacy that the prescription refill that I called in had been denied from the doctor. Confused, I called the pharmacy and asked what doctor and what script he was referring to. I was shocked when he told me that someone had called in a request for VicodinES that had been prescribed to me well before my meds had been changed to my current class ll meds of which you need a hard copy script. Before I had left the condo on Monday I emptied the garbage and cleaned the cat litter box. I threw out some old (and empty) bottles out in the cat litter bag and threw them into the dumpster. Would you believe that someone went dumpster diving, took out the cat litter bag, dug out the bottles, and then tried to call in the scripts under my name?!? I called the doctor and told them what happened and then I went to the pharmacy and asked to talk with the pharmacist who took the call. They assumed it was me that had called in the request and since the doctor had denied it and they called me and left me a message telling me so that that was the end of it. I told them that the person who called it in had no idea whether the doctor denied it and could very well come in trying to pick it up- they agreed and decided to call the police and file a report. They told me that I should remove the labels from my script bottles before throwing them out- Ha! I don't know about you but between my husband and I we have quite a few scripts each month and I really don't have the time to be soaking bottles to remove the labels! My husband and I keep our medications locked in a safe at the house and carry on us only what we need for the day for this and other reasons (too many people with issues!). Has anyone else been through a similar experience?
