I had been to Wal-Mart yesterday to get my script filled. I already had a script written by my doctor but still they were taking a very long time. After waiting for almost 40 minutes in the queue, all they had to tell me was they needed to make a call to the doctor’s office and check with them before filling it and were blabbering about checking my chart or something like that. I was dead tired by then, standing for 40 odd minutes and with a long line of people waiting behind me, was not in a mood to listen to them. I thought it was best to leave at that moment since I already had a few samples to sustain me through the weekend. So, I left saying that I would come back later to have it filled. Can someone here tell me what the cashier exactly meant? I know lyrica is a controlled drug but I already had a valid prescription right! Then what was all the fuss about? I have been on it since a week (100mg/day) and for me the results are great. It has been a great relief since my legs don’t ache anymore!!! Why the hell is it so so controlled. They cant help your pain and so they control your meds?????
