Perhaps there was some new notice concerning the Narcotics Monitoring System that requires identification of everyone who is prescribed narcotic or stimulant drugs, as well as people who pick them up for someone else. I moved here from the States, where prescriptions for controlled substances have long required both prescribers and dispensers to demand and record individual identification – and diagnosis – for each prescription.
I am sure that in the early days of such regulation, doctors were very nervous about compliance. I don’t understand, though, why you’re having the problem NOW, several years after the law went into effect.
UNLESS: Did the doctor get a letter specifically about YOU? That can happen if your name turns up sign of duplicative prescriptions, multiple doctors prescribing stimulants for you in the same month, or other red flags of abuse. If the doc got an individual’s letter, rather than a general notice, you should ask what it said, in case it was wrong.
