    It is pretty difficult around here to get an actual paper prescription
    in your hand. The nurses/medicos fax the prescription to the
    pharmacy, if you need a refill, the pharmacy faxes the doctor or nurse
    and receives a fax back. Basically you pick a pharmacy before you
    have a prescription. The doctor's office want s to have that info in
    your file ahead of time.

    That's odd; I've had two paper prescriptions handed to me
    in the past couple years, one of which was for a controlled
    substance.

    Any doctor can write out a prescription on paper, even those
    who standardly enter it into a computer.

    I have never encountered this. The paper prescriptions now have
    anti-forgery features; if it's a controlled substance, the
    pharmacy must exchange faxes with the prescribing doctor before
    filling it (and obtain an I.D. from the person picking it up).

    (The most common use of a paper prescription these days is if, at the
    time of the medical appointment, there is still uncertainty the
    patient will get it filled. e.g. "If you don't get better
    in three days, take these meds.")

    I knew there was an actual whitefish up north (like Canada), but I
    didn't realize there was anything considered "whitefish" in the U.S.
    I just thought most people considered any white fish, whitefish (as
    Jill did). I just have never seen "Whitefish" in any market except
    smoked.

    Here in TX the really controlled substances (Demerol, Percocet,
    Penobarbitol) have 3-part forge-resistant forms. Hydrocodone up to
    10mg (Norco) and the like are just simple paper prescriptions.

    Because I grew up with Whitefish, I never considered any other

    They do that with most meds, but pharmacies here require a printed
    prescription for certain narcotics. In this case it was a good thing
    because the pharmacy I always use is the one that was out, so I could
    just take the printed prescription to another pharmacy.

    Percocet was what I was on, but it was changed to just oxidocone without
    acetaminophen. It has to be hand written to be filled.

    For already prepped/bredded products; "white fish"... two words (ie.
    sticks/fast food fish, etc. ) they mean *white fleshed* fish, as in
    cod.

    For commercially prepared fish products, such as breaded sticks/cakes,
    they mean *white fleshed* ocean fish, such as cod... NOT fresh water
    "whitefish".

    The doctors here will either phone/fax the pharmacy or if you're in
    the office they will either hand you a written/printed Rx or phone/fax
    the pharmacy of your choice. Most doctors nowadays carry a type of
    hand held PC that's a phone and printer. My main pharmacy is mail
    order and will fax the doctor when a one year refill is due, or they
    will mail me a packet of 90 day stickers for my doctor to stick on
    their Rx, sign, and mail in the supplied postage paid envelope, or
    hand me back the scrips to mail at my convenience... I don't like to
    send in the refills too early or I lose the last few days on the old
    scrip and/or they send the meds too early while I still have a goodly
    supply and then I risk accumulating a collection of expired meds. I
    use three different pharmacys; mail order, a local, and Walmart...
    also the Vet... some pet meds can be gotten at Walmart, and for a
    whole lot less money, a quarter the price. The Vet sells insulin
    syringes for $140.00/100, at Walmart the 100 syringes cost $21.00 and
    they are a far better quality product. Anyone with a pet that needs
    meds talk to your Walmart pharmacist, they may not keep them in stock
    but they can order most and have them the very next day... actually
    any pharmacy can obtain pet meds but they choose not to bother. My
    local Super Walmart has "Blackie Martin (feline)" in their computer. I
    also obtain specially compounded cat meds from a specialty pharmacy,
    even the Vet has to send you there, very few pharmacies do compounding
    anymore... Mooch gets her Thyroid cream compounded here:

    There was only one of mine that required written prescription. I only
    filled it once on the first surgery. The rest of the time I was on
    Norco and that does contain acetaminophen, so I guess I didn't have
    your problem. 1or 2 Norco taken every 4 hours kept me pain free.
    Sorry you have more to deal with.
    However, with the faxed prescriptions, if the pharmacy doesn't have
    what you need (at least here) they will transfer it to the next
    pharmacy of your choice. I'm sorry to had to run around, especially
    since you shouldn't be driving while on drugs.

    I've never encountered a doctor that doesn't hand write an Rx, but
    nowadays most hand you an Rx that's printed on a PC... nowadays most
    doctors have their Rx pad loaded into a PC printer thingie... or if
    the patient chooses they will have their staff phone/fax the Rx to a
    pharmacy of your choice, that way by the time one drives from the
    doctor's office to the pharmacy the meds are waiting. These days all
    ones Rx meds are on line, any doctor, pharmacy, hospitol has access to
    all the Rx meds one has purchased in their entire lifetime... when you
    go to a new doctor or the ER they will ask you about which meds you
    take but then they will immediately check on line and print out all
    the meds you've ever purchased. All your medical procedures are on
    line as well, had an pappendectomy 50 years ago it's on line, even
    your dental work, all of it, even a cleaning.

    Tilapia is certainly white, and grows in "fresh" water. The texture
    isn't bad but it has no taste that I can detect.

    Over the last two years I have seen more doctors and had more
    appointments than I had over the rest of my life. I have also had a lot
    more prescriptions than over the rest of my life. Every single one of
    them was hand written.

    For me it's the exception, since I'm in an HMO whose doctors are
    connected by computer to the HMO pharmacies. But, if the
    script isn't being filled immediately, it is way more convenient
    for the doctor to write on paper, than for him/her to play phone
    tag with you and the pharmacy later.

    Pure Oxycodone is quite an unusual outpatient prescription. I'm not surprised it needs a physical script. On the "market", those are really valuable. A drug addict's dream.

    I've not seen a written prescription in over 10 years. The doc's
    computer knows the pharmacy and he just clicks and it is there when I
    get there.

    Only had written is when my wife leaves the hospital. Discharging
    doctor writes them and they hand them to you. They must not be tied
    in the system with local pharmacies.

    I wonder if the requirement of a written prescription with the doctors
    signature is a regional thing? But anyway, I wasn't on the meds
    yesterday because I was out of them. I'm sure they still stay in your
    system even when you don't take them, but I felt in control and not drugged.
