Went to Walgreens, to get my oxycodone refill.

This is a different store, that I have previously used, as my Doctors office moved to that area.

I am in Walgreens database for the same doctor and same medication, for over 8 years.

Got a total run-around, and had my Rx refused.

I asked the pharmacist, is she has the medical credentials to over-ride my Dr.'s advice, that has been treating me for over 10 years on a one-time 15 minute consult, and had the nerve to answer in the affirmative.

I will never step foot in a Walgreens again, and I will tell, yell, post to anyone who will listen . . Do NOT do business with Walgreens.

(this is in the Philadelphia, PA area. on Monday March 21,2016)

Reason of review: Health Issue, when a pharmicist thinks she is a doctor.

Walgreens Cons: Your whole rx hidden policy, Pharmacist was rude, Rude customer service, Incompetent pharmacy service, D-bag pharmacist.

Same exact did you ever happen to me March 28th dealing with the same Walgreens pharmacy for over 10 years. I was so livid and ended up going to the nearest pharmacy which is a Kmart they overheard my situation , and gave me my RX pain meds for free!

The manager and the pharmacist were completely incompetent- Mandeville, Louisiana Hwy 22 store. How can a pharmacist override medical doctors orders?

My name is Judith and I've had the same problem here in Ft. Pierce FL.

I've been going to this pharmacy since I purchased my home nearby in 09.

I'm on a life long regime of pain medication due to several reqasons.

One being I have a tumor inside my spinal cord that cause an even see amount of pain with any strenuous activity.

Every month I drop my script off I am met with such disrespect and judgment that I literally cry and feel ashamed. I am an upstanding citizen and have never been in any kind of trouble for anything my whole life.

I am a Notorious, I have a passport and I have a license to carry and conceal permit.. MY CREDENTIALS I'D SAY ARE IMPECCABLE.

..

Having too take painless so I can function every day on a normal day makes me feel like a criminal in its self. I don't need the 12.00 an hour cashier at walgreens deciding my life decisions and treating me as such...... I HAVE HAD IT !!!!!!! I'm getting an attorney to handle this.

This can't be right. People don't deserve to be treated like this. I totally understand he epidemic that's out there. I totally get that there is a problem..

but there is also a problem with discrimination on people with disabilities and Walgreens. I didn't break a leg a year ago and still trying to get meds.. I have a tumor (syrinx) inside my thoracic spinal cord.

I've been paralyzed before because of my lower back. I am tired of fighting for my pain meds...

If you have never filled at that location, and the first script you bring is a narcotic, then it stands to reason they will refuse it. Any pharmacy you have never used probably would.

And yes, a pharmacist is a doctor of MEDICATION and knows more about medications than your doctor does. They are also more regulated by the DEA and the federal government than your doctor is.
