    ok sorry knowing what i know this is fishy from the get go. how do you get 300 narcotics prescribed to you? they can only do them in 1 month increments because of the laws. that works out to 10 pills a day and i can’t see that since this woman is driving around plus i don’t know of any that you could take that many of per day

      What Doctor would even prescribe 300 tablets and why? Why is the pharmacy dispensing that prescription? All parties should be looked into.
