A woman in my apartment complex resells her $6,000/month Provigil pills to a sneaky pete drugstore for $1800 cash, she told me. I took her pills and the info to the police, they could not have cared less. Prescription was written by a reputable physician in an upscale 'hood. I'm sure this goes on full-time. I happen to detest the woman, but she is educated, dresses really well, does not fit the "poor ratty looking immigrant" profile at all. She's an upstanding church member.
Provigil cures nothing; it keeps you awake. Acts on the same receptors in the brain that cocaine effects. Go tell your doctor you have narcolepsy and voila! A $6,000/month resalable prescription can be yours.
I am seriously ticked. SERIOUSLY. Next time, I'm going to DEA office and notifying Medicare Fraud.
Many medicines are maintenance drugs not “cures” and this does not make them any less acceptable in modern medicine. If you wanted to keep only the “cures” then diabetics would be very upset, for one thing.
Anyhow, maybe she thinks she is doing her neighbor good by selling this stuff to him/her. I used this stuff briefly and it didn’t cost six grand a month.
Call the pharmacy board in the state.
Hmm, Generic is only $1.65 per 200mg pill. Perhaps you should ask your physician for a prescription and go see.
Sure sounds like it.
The real crime is the $6,000.00 price tag.
You need to call the Medicare Fraud line and report this lady, the pharmacy, the doctor, give them the name of the drug. I work at a hospital and if I wanted, could access Provider ID’s just like that...but, I am honest person.
It burns my bum all the fraud going on and when folks try to report it nothing ever gets done about it all.
Billions of dollars wasted. I wish Government would hire more auditors, just such a waste.
