I'm 24 years old and I take Xanax for sleep so it's documented in my chart. My internist who prescribes it doesn't give me one for every night, he only gives me a 15 per month supply. He fills this electronically with the pharmacy but I noticed one time that his DEA license number is printed on my prescription bottle, so for the last 4 months I've been calling the pharmacy and pretending to be from his office and phone ordering extra refills using his DEA number.
My friend told me doctors get a report of whatever they prescribe from the DEA. Is this true? Also if they find out can I get into a lot of trouble? My friend said the pharmacy sometimes will straight call the DEA and sheriff or police.
