    Now I have to go read through the comment thread to see what that means because I can't remember.

      acetaminophen ones.  Go back to your physician and rid yourself of frustration with his ignorance.  He should write you a better prescription, and reverse both charges  for office calls, and offer to pay for the prescription that he foolishly made.  Hold his feet to the fire, and if he is not very helpful, offer to publish his name, address, and specialty here.

      I suspect that he will buy the drugs back and poison other patients with them, calling them "free samples", write you a new prescription, and never want to see you again.

      Warmest regards,

      Doc

        I am concerned about the comment that TFLS's doc couldn't call in a script for Lortab, but there are some variations in state laws, too.

        But the doc cannot buy the drugs back. The doc didn't dispense the drugs, so can't buy them back. And it is illegal to give out "samples" of narcotics, except in very, very rare cases (the clinic I worked in did so on an extremely limited and highly regulated way for patients being treated with suboxone.)
