So today I had to go in person to get my prescriptions from my doctor an hour away. So after I had the medical assistant call me to let me know they were written so I could come get them, I get there and I have to have ID? She didn't think to tell me that when I had her call? Apparently it's a new rule at that office. I wouldn't be so picky, but my ID was in my car and I had to park really far away and the office is in a hospital and I was on a tight schedule, so I actually ended up having to come back and the added walking and driving put me into a flare. So I'm guessing this ID and signature requirement (not to mention having to get the prescription in writing) is to try to prevent addicts from abusing. I am not an addict and I have to suffer because of them. I should be glad I can get the meds I need at all. My other doctor took me off pain medicine because "I could get addicted." There is a lot more to an addiction than having a prescription when you have an actual diagnosis. I really have to budget my activity right now or I flare, so that's actually the result of their noble attempts to prevent abuse.
