Won't work. You MUST have a script written by a doctor in Alaska to get it filled in Alaska. Working in this field, I have never known any doctor that's going to write a script for an out-of-state patient for this type of medication.
I question such frequent use of pain meds for migraines. Don't know your wife's history, but she might benefit from a consult with a neurologist. There are some very good migraine meds.
Listen folks, I am not looking for any medical advice. You don't know our situation and have no basis to question anything. However, since several are interested.... We have seen a neurologist for over 10 years. Saw several other neurologist before this. Tried all the regular meds (all the variations of the triptans, propranolol, inderal, depakote, verapomil, effexor, etc, etc, etc). Now we are waiting on new discoveries (try them as soon as they get FDA approval) and in the mean time are treating with pain meds.
Also, our doctor is in a southern state and we are living temporarily in MI. There has been no problem with our doctor writing scripts and filling them in MI. It depends on the states and their laws (each is different).
OK, will calm down now. Everybody has their cross to bare. I just don't have a lot of patience when people come across as judgemental. Every body has their own story and unless you know it completely, we need to worry about the logs in our own eyes.
