I'm still learning, I suppose, about the ins/outs of IOP's. I have had a recurring prescription from my personal GP for Tramadol for quite a while. Unfortunately, Walmart has a "Cannot refill more than 1x per 30 days" Policy on Schedule IV drugs which Tramadol now is, in Illinois
My question is: Buying Tramadol online, is this a bad idea now that it's an Sched.IV where I live, even though I have a prescription from my GP? Should I just stop ordering this due to a possible legal situation I could have to deal with in the future even though my GP prescribes me this?
Before you ask, the reason I ordered more online rather than to continue getting it from my GP is because he writes me a QTY 60, use 1 every 8 hours as needed for pain (some days I take 2, other days I take 3). If I take 2 or 3 each day for pain, I'll obviously run out before the 30-day "Refill window" reopens for me, even though I have a refill RX written for me already by my GP
I'm a delivery driver and I get pretty horrible back pain (guessing from the constant sitting, and standing, repeat..) and this helps me immensely and always has. It also has been very effective for my IBS symptoms whereas I have been unable to find another medication to help with my IBS pain
If you could give me advice, would you advise me to discontinue ordering these? Just found it weird that both IOP's i've ordered from haven't said anything about not being able to ship to IL for this particular medication (One is a US IOP, the other is in the UK)
