I am a 52 year old disabled woman who has had several back surgeries. I have a damaged nerve, and several herniated discs.
I have been getting my pain medications filled at Walmart for several years. I also have numerous other medications that I get filled at Walmart. The pharmacy staff see me several times a month. Last month the pharmacist decided not to fill my prescriptions.
Nothing had changed. She said it was her "professional judgement not to fill them. I have been on the same prescriptions for years, now all of a sudden they won't fill them. They have been approved by my doctors and have gone through a strict approval process through my insurance.
How can a mere pharmacist decide not to fill them? I understand Walmart is trying to do their share in cracking down on the "opioid epidemic ". Its not right for someone in my situation to be made to feel like a criminal because I can't get my medications filled. The pharmacist doesn't even have a good reason not to fill them.
I am being discriminated against by the medications I take. I am not a drug addict, I don't appreciate being treated like one.
