I do not know anything about Texas pharmacy but I would think it would be the same as where I live. Your insurance should have a website telling you where you can get your RX filled at. If you had to pay full price it maybe becuase your insurance does not cover that particular drug if that is the case you should be able to call the doctor and get something else or maybe a generic versus name brand and reduce your copay. The other problerm you may have is if the doctor has prescribed something that has to be made just for you. These RX cannot be filled at your local Walgreens becuase someone has to create therm. There are specific pharmacys that do this called "Compounding Pharmacy" and these are not always covered by insurance. They do sell other RX's and look like a Mom and Pop Shop. There are changes by the FDA recently put in place to try to stop perscription abuse and stop "legal" overdoses. These laws are just catching people who really medication in the crossfire. I am just cooperating and giving what the pharmacy asks for because it is not them. They have to follow new procedures they don't want to hassle people but they have to answer for what they do. I hope this helps good luck!View Thread
