Are they right? Are you a drug addict? They must have had some reason to say that.I expect there is a LOT more to this story that we will never hear.

Walgreens Takes Over 2 WEEKS to Fill Meds!

I'm a chronic pain patient who has been going to Walgreen's for 3 and a half years. My local Walgreen's just hired a NEW pharmacist and She has put me through the wringer! I'm in excruciating PAIN and NEED ALL of my pain meds. One of my meds was on backorder, so I called the pharmacist almost every day to check on the status of the order. It took the pharmacist NINE DAYS to FINALLY tell me that I need to bring in a NEW script! (I'd been calling my doctor's office and he had sent them a couple of faxes trying to resolve the problem). Whenever I called the pharmacist, I was told some version of "We're working on it for you". Then WHY did it take 9 DAYS before they told me I needed to get a new script from my doctor??? And WHY were they telling me, "We're trying to order it"?! After 9 days of being jerked around, I finally drove to my doctor's office, picked up a NEW script, and brought it to the pharmacy. IT has now been almost TWO WEEKS and STILL no meds! I asked the pharmacist if she had ordered the med. She has a very thick accent and I can barely understand half of what she says. I THINK she said that she tried to order it, but when she FINALLY called the distrubuter after waiting NINE DAYS, she was told that she had NOT filled out the C-II order form correctly!! "Everything needs to be filled in so exactly on these C-II meds", was her pathetic excuse. Now, I have to start all over again from square one, when it's been nearly 3 WEEKS without my most effective pain med. From what I know of Walgreen's C-II orders, the wait is routinely at least a WEEK. I can't understand WHY it takes that long! Should I file a compliant? A few people on an online message board have suggested I do so, but they are not in my shoes. In my town, Walgreen's really is the ONLY option. We used to have 2 indy pharmacies, but they both are closed. I know that Rite-Aid cannot get ALL of my meds, and I'm pretty sure the same is true of CVS, although CVS is not even convenient for me. My mother has advised me NOT to file a complaint, for fear of ticking them off and therefore I wouldn't be able to get my meds. I have had problems in the recent past where one of the pharmacists did NOT want to fill my scripts every 28 days, even though that's how my pain doctor writes them. I had to talk with this pharm a few times before she stopped hassling me, and haven't had a problem since. I've seen how these pharmacists like to "play doctor" if they think someone is getting "too much" pain medicine or is ostensibly filling meds "too early", which was a total lie. The pharms arbitrarily decide whether or not they will fill your prescriptions. I said "You can call my doctor", and the pharm's haughty reply was, "*I* have the POWER to overrride anything that your doctor writes"! If I file a complaint will it even do any good? Or will I just get blacklisted and retaliated against? Since I don't have an alternate pharmacy near my house, I feel that I shouldn't make waves, as I am dependent upon these pharmacists to fill my meds each month. I'd HATE to be known as the "B" who filed a complaint on them! I think I'd only file a complaint if I had an alternate pharmacy to go to, and I don't. SO I guess I'll just have to suffer increased pain levels due to their ignorance and apathy. It is SO SAD what we chronic pain sufferers have to put up with! OVER TWO WEEKS to get a med in stock?! In the 21st century? The pony express would be faster. Any suggestions as to what I should do would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Really, maybe you should take your lunch hour and see that your Rx is filled on time. If you needed it so bad, why let it expire? :?

WAlgreens New Program

I have been told that Walgreens is instituting a Loyalty Card program. I object. I shop at Walgreens specifically because they do NOT have this program. I do NOT patronize CVS because of their program. The idea of having my purchases tracked and being marketed to is offensive to me. The idea that I cannot buy anything at a sale price without having this program in my wallet is offensive to me. As a shareholder, I am appalled at this. I feel it will drive business away. Don't we already have enough problems because Walgreens & Express Scripts couldn't negotiate? Getting that business back will be difficult - when people leave, they often don't come back. I think this is a bad idea and will not be participating. I am heavily considering moving my family's prescriptions to a nearby Dominick's. We are two middle-aged people - you will be losing plenty of pharmacy business.

Walgreens in Lafayette, California - Rude & Nasty

I called Walgreen's Pharmacy on Concord Ave. in Concord Ca. and Larry the Pharmacist and Manger same gentleman, I had let him know that my doctor called them and put an order in with them for cough medication and antibiotics my doctor called before calling me at home. then my doctor faxed the Walgreen's Pharmacy my Lasitix's (water Pill) while we were talking on the phone then we hung up. I then waited about 10-15 minutes to the Pharmacy and asked Larry if my stuff was ready he then got nasty and talking over saying that he had everything except for the cough medication , and I said to Larry sir you should have had the antibiotics and cough medication that my doctor called them prior to calling me at home then again he wasn't being nice, and he wouldn't check for me and Larry got saying that he would call when it came in, I told him I was going to file a complaint against them and I hung up. then I called a friend to ask them if they could go to the Pharmacy to pick my medication up cause I'm terminally ill and don't drive so my friend said yes. When my friend got there he always calls me to tell them my information and we hung up. Larry the Pharmacist, Manger called me I told him my friend was there to get them and he was waiting for them, Larry told me he was not going to ague with me that he had my medication in his hand and told me very rudely to come and get them that pist me off...he needs not to work for the public he is going to act very rude and nasty...CUSTOMERS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT WHEN YOU WORK IN THAT FIELD....

HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! WALGREENS

Do not go to the Walgreen's drive-thru in Oklahoma City at 23rd street. It takes so long that you should shut-off your engine even if you are the only one in line. If not you will have a long, long, long wait. Going inside is not alot of different. I will not shop there anymore because I am feed up with them losting or not having the meds or having to wait days to get meds because they do not have them. I can go to Homeland (across the street) and get my meds filled in 15 to 20 minutes and with no hassle. GOOD BYE Walgreens.

Walgreens in Phoenix, Arizona - Next day isn't an hour.

I go to Walgreens with my roll of film that I really wanted to get developed. I am expecting one hour photo to develop my pictures in an hour, surprisingly enough, and I even come in three hours later. Then I am told to come back tomorrow? Really? I planned on leaving on a trip the next day early and really needed those developed that day. People don't even very often develop. Honestly so I have no idea what else she could be doing instead of developing my film. I just feel mislead due to this false advertising. It's outrageous.
