There have been unconfirmed reports that medication found in Whitney Houston's hotel room came from the Mickey Fine Pharmacy in Beverly Hills

Was it so fine, so fine it blew their mind?

Wouldn't it be funny if it turned out that Conrad Murray was Whitney's doctor?

Just a thought.

Meh, the pharmacy only fills prescriptions written by a doctor, after confirming the prescription. Why drag their name through the mud?

Ohh, I'm sure in Hollywood certain "rules" are broken all the time, especially if your prescription is from Dr Feelgood.

If a patient has 4 active pain medications and 5 different benzo prescriptions, the pharmacist shouldn't fill it, even if all of it was written by a legitimate doctor. That is suppose to be their job. It is the reason they went through 8 years of school and can't be replaced by a vending machine.

This. All the pharmacies I've went have told me about medications that interact negatively. I don't know of any pharmacy where I live that would fill opioids and benzos like that. Then again I live in a state that has a system to track prescriptions and now they've made it so the doctors use it too so they can catch people doctor shopping. I've never been able to get anything narcotic filled before it was time to refill. The doctors around here usually don't give refills for narcotics so you have to go back in to get another prescriptions. Then again I'm not a celebrity with tons of money.

FTA: "the same chemist where Michael Jackson had his prescriptions filled - to such an extent that the pharmacy once sued him for $100,000 in unpaid bills."

A couple of things:

1. Why the fark would a pharmacy ever extend credit to anyone? If you're some other sort of retailer, I can understand - for instance a clothing or shoe store would want celebrities to be wearing their goods, so you do everything you can to make the sale. But pharmacies can't mention their famous clients, so what's the use of making accommodations for them when you get nothing of value in return?

2. It's crazy whenever you hear of a working celebrity who doesn't pay their bills. I'm no longer surprised when I hear about it, but it's a tremendously thoughtless thing to skip out on your bills - especially to those who have the means to pay them. I wish someone would name celebrity deadbeats to embarrass and shame them.

Yeah, if they get them all filled at that pharmacy. But any good doctor shopper knows to shop pharmacies as well.

It is law here in Va (and perhaps Federal law) but Schedule II & III narcotics (pain meds, specifically) cannot have refills. I have been on Methadone for chronic pain for years anhd remember when the law was passed several years back. It is a pain in the ass having to go back to my daktari to get my monthly refills (no call ins, either). Schedule II drugs (such as methadone) have never allowed refills but my doc would write 3 or 4 scripts, one for each month.

Yeah, I remember reading that Elvis would get a ridiculous number of prescriptions under various aliases from star-struck doctors who wanted to boast they were his doctor. I think he had at least a dozen drugs in his system and over 10,000 doses of prescription drugs in 1977 alone. I know Dr. Nick was treating to ween him off the drugs, but Elvis had no problem finding doctors who would write prescriptions for him under different names so he could get as much of whatever he wanted.

Of course that was 30 years...I'm assuming things are different?

The Pharmacy also sells burritos and coffee?
Why do I get the feeling that their bathrooms are not all that sanitary?

A pharmacy that also sells food and coffee? No such thing has ever existed before, this is so novel and amazing.

I spent a week in St. Paul summer of 2010, and pretty much hung out at Mickey's every night. That place rules.

Some states have online databases that doctors and pharmacists are required to fill out whenever they write/fill narcotics scripts, to prevent doctor/pharmacy shopping. Don't know if California is one of them.

PDX. This full-service pharmacy also still sells milkshakes, malts, and phosphate sodas. No food, alas.

I see you are from Kentucky.

You could find a doctor/pharmacy to fill what ever you want if you looked around and had the cash to spend.

I'm a pharmacist in Maryland, and have had people from Kentucky trying to get Oxycontin prescrptions filled from doctors in Florida.

We, of course don't fill them, but recently Cardinal Health (new window) got busted for sending over 3 million dosage units of oxyconting to a pharmacy in Florida. No one noticed the pharmacy went from buying 5,000 per month to 50,000 tabs.

It is crazy what customers will try to pull.

One lady told me her dog ate 25-30 Percocet 10 tablets. I asked her where she burried her dog and she said "He is fine". I don't think so.

Must be Va State law.

Schedule III rx, per Federal laws, can be filled 6 times in 6 months.

Also, Federal law allows codeine to be sold OTC, Maryland state law does not allow it.

Docs can write 3-4 rx for CII medications.

What the hell is up with pain clinics in Florida? Drivers license from Wyoming, 180 tab Oxycontin prescription from Florida, and trying to fill it at a rural independent pharmacy in North Carolina? Sure, I'll get right on that. And the clinics aren't shut down for months, and the doctors hardly ever have their license pulled. The medical board in Florida must be a joke.

What the fark? Did you fill them because from what I know pharmacies in KY won't fill scripts for narcotics that are out of state,especially from Florida. Is it the same in Maryland?

Broktun,
What part of MD? My job carries me up I95 or across the (not-so) Nice Bridge on a regular basis.
