  1. I have patients that really need it for true pain, what is the government doing for them? These are people who are suffering from car accidents, chronic Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia etc.

  2. So because some guy has a personal problem with the pills you make it harder on the people that really need them like my wife who has a brocken back. CVS, your job is to count the pills. Imsurence/ big gov. your job is to pay the bill. Leave the doctoring to the doctor. All you others, stick to your own jobs. I'll never step foot in CVS. Ever.

  3. Here we go Jeff sessions machine is on the move, back to more propaganda 1 to 2% of opioids users move onto harder drugs but all of the energy will focus on these 1 to 2% in order to make a point. And with a limited seven day supply you will be paying more money per month for these drugs

  4. Well, if this was just a black problem, they would increase the supply, but it's not. Look what YOU PEOPLE have done to the people that really need it, wow.

  5. All this will do is create a hardship on people who really need the medication. The druggies will just go buy it on the street corner. Someone needs to file a lawsuit on this. The drug store has no business whatsoever dictating how many pills a patient should get. That's the job of the doctor, you fools! Sheesh!

  6. Ja det er sku da på tide . Jeg har aldrig nogensinde set et samfund hvor folk piver så meget og tager så medicin opdeling recept og uden . Det må være omkring 90 % af hele verdens forbrug . Du kan simpelthen få massevis af alle slags medicin inklusiv controlled fra din læge eller du ber bare om at blive refereret til en expert eller phsyciater og voila du kan få så meget dope at et sundt menneske kan dø af det . Så tænk meget grundigt over hvad din læge giver dig og siger hvis du går til lægen i USA for en stor del af lægerne her kan være livsfarlige . Desuden er det et system som ikke bliver overvåget nok fordi der ikke er personale nok til at gære det så det gør situationen direkte masse dødelig . Der er andre produkter du kan give folk for snerter inklusive medicin som ikke er vanedannende . Dette er et personligt kynisk valg fra lægens side at udskrive et farligt produkt og det beviser en foruroligende ligegyldighed med folks sundhed og liv. Desuden vil denne form for begrænsning medføre at folk scorer på gaden og flere dør og det kan være din søn eller datter . Din bedste ven . Din mor og far eller dig selv .

  7. CVS should have thought about "PRESCRIPTION" limits in Florida when they were selling this stuff to people all over this country for drug sales. They killed a lot of people and never said, "SORRY!" I would BOYCOTT these hypocrites….

  8. This is BS. – showing someone counting tablets with a pen?!!! And this also means that CVS can charge 4 x 1 week co-pays ! Showing concern about customers (er, I mean "patients")? No way; just trying to keep up the profit margins!

  9. The pharmacy has NO business determining if a patient needs an opioid or any other medicine for that matter. They aren't doctors and they aren't stopping the rare drug addicts. Also, if people choose to take a lot and they overdose, that's the problem of the person, not the doctor or pharmacy. People have a right to commit suicide if they choose to do so whether intentional or unintentional
