I take two meds for a sleep disorder and I have taken them for about 10 years, I have never asked for more pills or to get them early but my new Dr. called me in for a pill count today and a drug test or he would not give me my meds next time. I am on medical and I have never been in trouble with the law and have never had to take a drug test except for a job in the past. The doctor said it was just because their computer picked my name for the test and pill count and that it was their policy to do this. I passed the test and pill count but I felt like I was on parole or something. With the money problems the state of Calif. is in this is a big waste of money for me to have to go in to the Dr. for no reason.Just to add a littlle more, the doctor did not test me for the drugs I have a script for they tested me for street drugs like cocaine, meth, weed just to name a few. I also had not been in to see the doctor for a few months as it was not time to see him yet. Also I have met other people that have been going to the same clinic for years and are on stronger meds than me and they have never had to go in for a pill count or a drug test, and they have a police record for drugs.
