I have a prescription and OxyContin and I filled it on

Customer Question

Hi. I have a prescription for Percocet and OxyContin and I filled it on October 29. I had an appointment with my doctor last Wednesday to get my prescription. I called the pharmacy ahead of time to make sure they could fill my prescription because I was leaving town for thanksgiving. That would have been the 28th day. The pharmacist asst. said the pharmacist said they were out. They have filled my prescription for a long time. From time to to time this type or holiday thinG happens and they refuse to fill my prescription. They said they were closed on Friday as well. They said I should have enough "extra" to cover me until Monday! That would be the 33rd day. My doctor knew I needed it that day as well.

Good evening and welcome. I am very sorry to hear about this trouble getting your prescription filled. If I may ask, what exactly is your legal question regarding this situatation?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I feel like the pharmacist is harassing me by not allowing me to get my prescription filled. If I am with out this medicine I will go into withdraw and become sick. I guess I was looking for someone who could write a letter to the pharmacist.

I believe I could make a civil rights complaint for discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act

FYI.. I did get the prescription filled but I had to got to many different pharmacies on Wednesday to find a place that would fill it.

The discrimination complaint would be for not following standard of care...
