they make it hard to get the drugs we need legally, but remains easy to get the drugs from the guy on the corner...

We use Walgreen's and the only problem we had was when the automated call came about renewing the last thing it said was that I could pick up at the Walgreen's in Williamsburg VA! Only thing was we were back home in Mississippi. I had to call the Williamsburg store an cancel the order and have it filled at the Waynesboro store.

depending on how good your medical insurance is you are probably going to have to go to a walk in clinic and explain the situation to the doctor there. I would have copies of my medical records with me to show them while they are examining you. Ask them to give you the longest prescription they can. I have a very small copay for all doctors visits so it will not be a huge problem to do this. It is an inconvenience but it is possible to get the meds you need.

We once had our Dr. give us a written prescription to take with us out of state. Came time to fill it and went to Walgreens. Pharmacy told us they could only fill Hydrocodone when prescription was written by a DR licensed in the state. Pointed us to the urgent care clinic across the street.

Went there. Saw the DR, explained the condition, showed him the scar and our Drs written prescription. No problem he wrote one for us. Took 5 minutes and cost $165.00 for the office visit.

We use Walgreens and never have a problem where ever we go. Now on the other hand, heavy duty narcotic scripts require a renewal monthly anyway. that does need a doctor visit but we don't have to use them YET

I, too, am worried about this. We hope to be gone from FL for six months this year and I was wondering what to do and how to manage our refills.

Refilling narcotics prescriptions, morphine and oxycodone, was a big concern we had when starting a three month, 9,000 mile cross country trip (AZ to NY and many points in between). My pain management Dr gave me 3 post dated prescriptions and basically said "good luck". The only problem we had was in NY. The prescription though post dated was greater than 30 days old which per their STATE law could not be filled. We were on our way to Pennsylvania so called ahead (we use Walgreens) to the local pharmacy and they had no issues filling both prescriptions. After that we called ahead to a Walgreens in the state we planned to be in to verify they would fill. Had no other problems, one pharmacy called my Dr., another my home town Walgreens for verification. State law is the big unknown, some have rather strange requirements, others minimal just to meet compliance with Fed law. So if you have a doc that will post date prescriptions and call ahead to verify the local pharmacy will fill, you should be fine. Just remember to be very specific when calling ahead and give all pertinent information (prescribing state, date of issue, date to be filled, etc.).

All our 'scripts are through mail-order, long-term-3 months at a time. We simply have our mail forwarded to her, she repackages everything in a USPS flat-rate box and mails it to wherever we will be staying long enough to receive mail. We just leave her postage money and a supply of boxes.
If the pharmacy sends 'scripts through the mail anyone may.
