I see my pain doc every 3 months, & she gives me two prescriptions at a time. One for current month, & one for next month. She dates them for every 28 days so there is no way I can refill early on oxycodone being a schedule 2 drug. The other I take can be refilled after 80% is used like I said. I believe it.

Also, at some pharmacies the "two days early" means you can get it 2 days early every month. Other pharmacies it may mean you're only allowed 2 days for 6 months or so, so if you use up the 2 days the first time you'll have to get it on the 30th day for the rest of the refills (or new scripts if it's a C-II).

Dear Pharmacy Patient: We need to talk. See, I've been noticing that you sometimes don't pick up your refills, or you're shocked at the high price of your prescriptions.
