I am the same as you and I just go to a pharmacy with the container that has the phone number and name of the pharmacy where I got the meds. from.
The new pharmacy then phone the pharmacy where I got the last meds and check to see if the prescription is current and renewable.
They then fill the prescription and I am on the way with a newly filled prescription
Hope that helps you.

You just ask your pharmacist for 5 months support.
Recently mine even gave me for 7 months. Paid "mucho" dollars......

I believe the OP is talking about obtaining Schedule II Controlled Substances (pain meds).

This is altogether different than easily obtaining regular prescriptions as you travel.

Schedule II meds, under a new ruling, can only be prescribed for 30 days and then you need to return to your doctor for a new prescription. The prescription cannot be transferred from pharmacy to pharmacy and you cannot get one for a 90 day period and then have it renewed.

Many full-timers are having a very difficult time with this. To the OP, you need to talk to your doctor to see how you can handle this. Good luck.
