A secret pharmacy order limit has made patients with sleep, anxiety and attention disorders scramble for their medications.

The DEA requires distributors to limit how many orders pharmacies can make. The cut off limit is secret – the pharmacies don’t know what their limit is – instead, they just get cut off. The result is we have been in the midst of a nationwide “shortage” – created by government regulations. The effect is that patients are unable to get the medications they need.

Patients are told to then transfer their prescriptions to another pharmacy. And another …. which wastes more time and money in our overpriced health care madness.

We are a nation of idiots.
