copied Phentermine rx (caught)

I made 3 copies of the rx the dr gave me and took it to 3 pharmacies. I picked up one successfully but when I went to the second I was told they could not give it to me because the third pharmacy had just called and told them it was a duplicate. The pharmacist told me not to go to the other pharmacy because the police where over there. How deep in trouble am I? I only picked up one prescription and am really worried.

i got caught callin in a fake script about 8 yrs ago and got arrested,,,,its only a misdemeanor and usually you can get off......all i had to do was 20 hrs of comm service and go to a drug class.....and they agreed not to go forward with the charge.......but i am in Maryland....so it might be different. I dont think you are gonna get in trouble though.....your doctor gave you 3 scripts....you only picked up one....so what if you turned them all in....you might have thought the other ones wouldnt be filled. I wouldnt worry about it.

oh wait....you copied the scripts? Now that may be an issue......but its still a misdemeanor and if you havent had anything on your record they may be pretty lenient with you.....

I'm surprised, most pharmacies won't accept a copy of a narcotic prescription. It has to be the orginial on special paper.  I think you need to come clean with the doctor first and foremost and then see what an attorney will say to do. good luck

I hope this is another case of scared straight, the things we will do to feed our addiction, actions such as yours should be a wake up call to all. I know the things i did to get my kicks, we have got to stay way from theses pills. The worst i did was hunted my nephew down with a shotgun after he stole all my drugs right after i got them filled. I had every intentions of killing him!!

So far nothing has happened, but I'm waiting for a knock on the door anytime now. Hopefully the judge is lenient since this is my only offense. I learned my lesson.
