Patient :I was wondering if when I received my narcotic pain mmedication from the VA, two of the pills where missing pieces. One a half and the second a half of a half, I don't care about having it replaced. do you think that it is a cause for concern, or is this something that happens from time to time. 3/4 of a pill is not a big deal, but if this happens alot it could be a sufficient amount of medication and someone may have a drug problem in there pharmacy. Should I be concerned about this or is it the norm. Thank you for your help. Cynthia
