My son took CII drugs for his ADD, and filling those prescriptions was the BIGGEST PITA. Because of the CII category, many, if not all pharmacies will not give out the information over the phone. Your regular pharmacy MAY be able to order the drug, but the triplicate copy Rx form issued by the DEA has an expiration date, which is almost guaranteed to fall long before the drug will arrive.
We had to go through that EVERY SINGLE STINKIN’ MONTH, because you don’t get REFILLS on CII drugs.
The doctor was finally balking, because we were eating up his prescription blanks. He only got a certain amount every month from DEA. Our insurance had a mail order pharmacy, and that was the solution for us: get a three-month supply by mail, using one prescription blank.
That worked okay, until the mail order pharmacy shorted us. I was FURIOUS. When I contacted the pharmacy and complained, I was told, “The only recourse you have is to send us a new prescriiption and we fill it.”
You can bet your boots I counted each damned pill we got from the mail order pharmacy from then on!
My warning to you would be: whether you get it filled locally or via mail order pharmacy, count the pills when you get home!
