My doctor in GA. warned me about the resistance by Walgreens to fill pain medicines. They give the doctors a hard time too. Lots of red tape. My doctor made a point of asking me to have my prescriptions filled somewhere else.
Same here.
Obviously there was a separate issue going on, e.g. DEA cracking down on pharmacy or the specific medication, issues with doctor, issues with supply. Otherwise, why would they fill it this time?
They aren't as "skilled" at recognizing drug seeking behavior like you think. I can spot a junkie from a mile away because I'm a recovering addict. They fill scripts for them allll the time. I actually have seen a friend who is not an addict be discriminated against by them. Soo... ya.
I'm sure they knew who you were, they're very experienced at identifying drug seeking behaviour and pain pill junkies, my bet is they were right, you do have a problem with drug use you struggle to control, and the first step is to admit to it, not deny it and project your drug issues onto them

Even if this person did have a problem. A. you can't 100% accurately guess that. B. Who the *** are they to be the morality police? If anyone knows about OP being an addict it would be their Dr. NOT a *** Pharmacy. It's really none of their business anyway, it's between the Dr. and OP. What if this medicine was REALLY important to this person for reasons besides addiction and they deny it? They ARE NOT Drs. and have 0 clue what this persons medical history is. If they aren't allowed to write a script than they sure as *** shouldn't be allowed to deny one written by an ACTUAL medical professional. My guess is they wanted to be Drs. but weren't smart enough so now they use every opportunity to wield some Doctoral powers.
