It sounds like that doctor has been black listed from that pharmacy. It probably has nothing to do with you. It happens all the time in ky. Was the older pharmacy that you used to go to a 'mom and pop' pharm? And is this new pharmacy a big chain i.e. Walgreens, cvs, or etc?
Big pharmacies will black list pain management docs, and will refuse to fill any prescriptions from them.
The only other thing I can think of is that the new pharm doesn't stock generics. Because all roxi's are technically generic. But, that shouldn't be the case.
Either way, stick with the old pharmacy. Relationships are important and so are familiar faces. And it sounds like the new pharmacy has stereotyped either you or your doc.
How to file complaints if patient is being denied having a valid/on time control substance prescriptions.
If patient is disabled - as determined by SS/Medicare or private insurance disability insurance the patient is covered under ADA (American Disabilities Act). Having Chronic pain itself, may qualify a person as covered by ADA The ADA parallels the Civil Rights Act of 1964. People who are disabled cannot be discriminated against because of their disabilities.
If a Pharmacist refuses to fill a valid/on time control substance prescription for reasons other than doing so would harm the patient.. because the patient is allergic to the medication, medication would adversely interact with other medications the patient is taking, or the prescribed dose is above recommended dosing. Although some specialists can and do prescribed above normal doses for a patient and it is perfectly legal.

This is the result of an idiot pharmacist that has a control freak issue. You are not required to tell them anything at all about your condition or what the diagnosis is. Don't tell them anything. The prescription is the only document or information that they are legally obligated to honor.
This is also the result in part to the DEA fear that all drug suppliers have been exposed to, so in the end you get these retards who think they have the power and authority to play FDA, Doctor, and DEA agent all at the same time.
