if you do not trust them to count your medication correctly ask them to count it in front of you before they give it to you so there is no way they can accuse you of lying

I currently read several reports about how Walgreen's treats chronic pain suffers. I have had almost the same treatment, but let me tell you an even more crazier story. This one is about the soon to be "very public" narcotics list. I woke up one night a few months...

The OP is obviously doctor shopping. I say that based on the sentence in the original post, "Every time I go to a new Doctor the come right in with this list. (sic) " That's not a statement someone who is using one doctor makes.

It's too bad (maybe) he/she is in pain but there is clearly a reason for Walgreen's action in this case.

Took two pictures to print at Walgreens photo lab last Friday. The two photos are passport size photos taken by myself. I uploaded the pictures through the computer and was told it will cost $0.58. About half an hour later, I went to pick up the photo. The photo lab...

Every photo lab checks the photos before printing. It's naive to think that the images just miraculously print without anyone else seeing them.

Walgreens has a policy that employees have to follow when it comes to photos. There are some we just cannot print. Also, if you have photos that you don't want seen perhaps you should invest in a photo printer and do it at home.

As for the passport thing, printing passport photos is a service that walgreens offers. The service includes getting your photo taken against a white background and two prints that print to the correct size which the photo tech cuts in the lab.

Also to get the photos the correct size (and for proper centering of the image) the tech uses software that the store has. THAT is what you are paying for, not just the pictures. To be honest, if the pictures are not exactly correct for passport images, they will be rejected. I've seen people try it themselves before, just to come back later to have the store do it.

You were probably charged for the full price because otherwise your pictures wouldn't have been the correct size for a passport photo. You can't just order 2x2 prints.

You're obviously one of those nightmare customers that no one can deal with. Publix doesn't treat anyone that way unless they are completely unreasonable or insane. I think you're probably a little of both.

Consumer complaint to Walgreens falls on deaf ears and blind eyes!

October 16, 2008 Good Afternoon: To be honest with you, a telephone call just isn't satisfactory to me. I am aghast that it has taken this long for someone to actually take the time to respond... My initial consumer complaint was sent to your corporation back on September the 12th, it now is October 16th. I had to take the time to even resend the hard copy complaint, and yes, again at my expense. And to date, electronically, there have been 24 writings. This is inexcusable, and from such a widely known corporation such as yourself. As written you have my address ~ I certainly would expect some sort of written apology and even perhaps compensation to show indeed I am valued and you would like to retain my business. The only thing left that I have to say is: Shame on you, Walgreens. What is the purpose of having a site where complaints appear to be welcomed only to fall on deaf (ears) and blind eyes!

If you are so poor that you beg for compensation like a dog than why did you resend the complaint at your expense?

While your case is indicative of the way walgreens 'pharmacists' and tech treat chronic pain sufferers it also points out the the cowards and sociopaths of the dea have inserted themselves into the doctor patient, patient pharmacist relationship! They have caused nationwide shortages of pain meds deliberately to prevent 'diversion' which is their new 'cause du jour, so they can continue to live off of honest taxpayers. They are the *** of the earth and the US version of the gestapo and kgb all rolled into one!

Before everyone goes all batshit on me, if your doctor calls and authorizes the early release of a controlled substance than that's a different story. We have the okay from the doctor so we won't be held liable if people abuse their meds and end up ODing one day.

I'm not saying anyone here does that, so again don't riot against me. I'm just telling you how it works in a pharmacy. I'm sorry to say we have 600 other scripts to fill.

If we're gonna be fair to everyone, we can't treat one person like they're special and fill their pain meds early. It's not ethical or lawful.

Walgreens HR folks are racists

Walgreens has an international pharmacist/pharmacy intern division. These guys have their IQ at the lowest and wonder if they know what they are doing. Throughout the world Pharmacy program offered in different formats and the job application is designed towards Pharmacy schools in US. They don't have a place to say what is FPGEE score, have u passed FPGEE, they don't provide a telephone number where they can be called if we have questions and handles everything behind e-mails. Some HR guy have to wake up and investigate how their staff are treating foreign pharmacy graduates.

Walgreens in Florissant, Missouri - INCOMPETENT PHARMACY

WALGREEN INCORRECTLY FILLED MY PRESCRIPTION - CHARGED A FULL CO-PAY OF $40.00. I SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED 180 CAPSULES - WALGREENS ONLY PROVIDED 20. I PAID FOR THE SCRIP - WHEN I ARRIVED HOME - I DISCOVERED THE SCRIP WAS SHORT 160 CAPSULES. CHECK YOUR RE-FILL OF SCRIPS BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE STORE ! ! ! CHECK OF ACCURACY - THE TYPE OF MEDS - DOSAGE AND QUANTITY. YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES HEALTH ARE AT RISK. WHAT IF YOUR PRESCRIPTION IS NOT FILLED PROPERLY ? ? ? IF YOU HAVE A SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION - YOU COULD BECOME VERY SICK - OR EVEN DIE ! ! ! DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER

Is it possible that your prescription vial reads 20/180 and also that the outer paper on the bag reads Partial? If so, there weren't enough capsules available in the pharmacy to fulfill the entire quantity, but your pharmacist recognized that you need this medication and provided you some. Considering the fact that you paid your full $40 copay for those 20 capsules indicates that the medication is rather expensive as well, and you'll probably be very relieved to find out that you don't have a remaining copay when you pick up the remainder of your medication.

1. Here's a good reason why a PBM (which is not an insurance company) would deny a prior authorization for a medication given for an off-label use: since the FDA hasn't approved it for that use yet, there is little to no data on its safety when used in that manner. You want it? You pay for it.

2. Not only do most pharmacies fill generically, but they're given the right to do so by state law (in all 50 states). Unless your doctor specifies brand name medically necessary (in his or her own handwriting), you'll more than likely be receiving a generic substitute which has been approved by the FDA as pharmacologically identical to the brand name medication.

3. Your numbers for the mark-ups on prescription drugs seem a bit off. Even so, I doubt you complain about the mark-up of fountain drinks.
