Americans with pain medication prescriptions

Boycott CVS

    1. Petition by

      Saint Cloud, FL

Do you know one of the 50 million americans with arthritis? Do you know someone living with painful injuries from an accident? CVS Pharmacy is refusing to fill prescriptions from certain Florida pain doctors. If they can't fill all of my family's prescriptions then they will fill none of them. Nor will I shop at their stores. Join me is sending a message to CVS that pain medications are necessary for many Americans to have some quality of life. We did not choose these conditions or injuries and we do not have a choice to take or not take pain medications. If you or someone you love has chronic pain, then you undetstand the need for these prescription medications to be available and filled. Speak now.

      I am signing because I am sick and tired of "others" telling me what pain I do or don't have! This is crazy...I have to fight for 2 Vicodin a day (been on them 15+ years now due to 2 back surgeries, one of which is fusion), which just gets me going in the morning! I totally get there is abuse with meds, but I am tired of having to pay for others abuse! Trust me...this is not the life I have chose for myself and now the pharmacy wants to dictate whether I get meds or not!? Really!?

      That is terrible. Why is is up to them whether they should fill a prescription or not???? This is just as bad as the DEA dictating to pain mgmt docs what they can prescribe-you know that's where this started.....they monitor how many controlled substances each provider writes and they are beginning to dictate this type discrimination-it's RIDICULOUS!!! It's unfair to the 99% of us who are in genuine pain to discriminate against us because of the 1% of people are faking.......all to obtain meds. To me, it's a clear issue-the DOCTORS went to medical school-if they see the need to write the script, the pharmacy should fill it and the gov't and private industry needs to stay the hell out of it!!!!!!!

      It is shameful the way these chain pharmacies are profiling & discriminating, and usually, down right RUDE to CUSTOMERS they know nothing about.

      It is terrible that CVS can choose to fill or not fill certain medicines. I just started shopping there and will stop today. I take several "controlled substances" and would be very angry if they refuse to fill mine. So CVS if it is a VALID prescription do your job and fill it!!!
