For those who typically use online pharmacies but who also occasionally fill scripts at local chain pharmacies, do you know if your purchases both locally and online are entered into your state's database that tracks prescription purchases?
The only reason I wonder is because I was prescribed a 10-day supply of something that had some nasty side effects (it was one of the most powerful of its kind because the doc knew my pain was serious and legit). So I was told by that doc to toss the first script and go back to over-the-counter (which had no effect at all on the pain) so I ended up getting a script online for another pain med. Do both purchases end up in the same state database? Are the state's databases recording by state that the pharmacy is located in? Or the patient's home state?
