Re: Filling out of state schedule 2 RX?
I'm so sorry you are left stressing about this, I know it puts a HUGE damper on your holiday plans.
I don't know how it goes in KY, but from what I understand, they are pretty strict. I can tell you that I had this same situation with a refill during a time I would be out of town.
I was able to fill my meds in the state I was visiting, however when I did that, it voided/took away the remaining refill I would have had left. In other words, I get a scrip for my meds and each one has 2 refills. When I was visiting family in another state, I had my 2 refills left. I got my refill which should have left me with 1 more refill, but the pharmacist told me that when you "transfer" a scrip, the insurance & state laws will only allow for 1 transfer, so when I got back to my hometown, my doctor would have to write a new scrip for the last month's worth of meds. He was very nice to me, and told me that many pharmacists will not fill meds from another state, but he checked my records and saw I had been on these meds for several years and had no red-flags and didn't have a history of early refills, so he felt I was trustworthy. I got lucky because he could have refused to fill my meds which would have left me going for about 5 days without meds. I would have had to cut my trip short & head home simply to avoid the pain & withdraws.
When I got back in town, my doctor confirmed what the pharmacist had told me & he wrote me a scrip for the last month's meds.
I certainly hope you are able to get this straightened out so you don't have to suffer pain & withdrawal during your trip. I would certainly ask if your doctor had noted what you discussed in your records. If he did, there shouldn't be a problem, but I also know doctors discuss lots of things with their patients that they don't put in their file.
Please keep us updated, and know we are here for you.
