Drug Warriors Arrest Woman For Filling Prescription

A woman in Dallas who had recently undergone a knee reconstruction was arrested for trying to refill her prescription. Ann Lenhart called to get her pain prescription refilled, which was Norco, an opioid pain medication. The pharmacy called Ann and asked her what time she would pick up her prescription. They had a cop waiting for her, and she was hauled off in a cruiser, taken to jail for a night, and charged with obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, which is a felony charge. She had to get an attorney to secure her entrance back into her workplace because she had been branded a criminal. The police dropped charges after they decided to talk to her doctor and discovered the prescription was legit (as if her knee brace and permanent IV line weren’t enough of an indication). Oh, but of course, she could have faked that.

Miss Lenhart is suing CVS for false imprisonment, defamation, etc. Good for her. This reminds me of a time several years ago, after each of my two shoulder reconstructions, when I was given Demerol, also an opioid, under some very liberal pain management by my orthopedic surgeon. Once I left the hospital, he wrote me a prescription for Demerol, and there was only one place within a decent range of my home that would fill it (a local hospital pharmacy). When I showed up to pick up the prescription, sealed in a plastic armour jacket and sling from the waist up, with my two elderly parents in tow, I was treated suspicious and with disdain.

    I had to have two diff cataract surgeries in the last couple of months. Was told to take three diff types of eyedrops for three days before surgery and then for six weeks after surgery. On the second day before surgery, something told me to research these three eyedrops which were hellishly expensive. Not a total of three tablespoons between the three, the cost was over $450!!! Like putting gold in your eye, except the one, Vigamox, I discovered in researching was giving all kinds of problems to those who used it, including mold in the eyes. Wow, that did it for me..day after surgery had to do a follow up visit..told the doc of my findings, mold stories, lawsuits and the fact the FDA never even approves of ANY eyedrops..reason is that it would take to long to research, yada yada yada. So right then, my doc says ‘you don’t have to take them anymore’. Right then I knew what this song was about. BIg Pharma in the pockets of eye doctors now. The drops, not even approved, are probably pushed onto doctors with the promise for each prescription they write, they get a cut..talk about being pissed. Of course, I have no proof, but why would he cut me off the day after surgery…and yet, acted like he was not at all concerned about the heinous effects of said drops. And I thought I could trust this one..here he is in New England, as he too, is a former Michigander I never dreamt would stoop to being in bed with Big RX.
