The Government Is Super Serious About The Scheduling Of Schedule IIs

, , , | Healthy | March 21, 2023

I’m working in a pharmacy, and I answer the phone.

Patient: “I need to get my prescription of [medication] refilled.”

I do some checking and come back to the phone.

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but that prescription isn’t due for another two weeks. You’ll have to call back after [date].”

Patient: “Oh, come on! Other pharmacies have done it for me!”

He was on a pain medication that’s classed as Schedule II — a controlled substance. Sir, the freaking Drug Enforcement Administration regulates those sales; don’t lie to me.

He did not get his medication that day.
