My wife just had major surgery. Surgeon told her he would give pain meds following surgery so she saw pain doc for two months up to surgery.
After surgery, she took RX to Walgreens where we have at least a dozen non narcotic RX's filled and presented RX from surgeon because we were told it would expire in 3 days (turns out 21 days). WAG kept RX's, told my wife they had to check on legitimacy of RX in front of other customers bringing my wife to tears. We are moving all RX and will stop all shopping at WAG will probably cost them 15K per year all told. They unilaterally were rude, insensitive and we had one of our DR's tell us to leave them because we would now be coded as "WATCH NARC" as in we are drug abusers or pushers.
I admire what they want to accomplish but their execution is flawed.
They should be shut down. See the posts from the Professor of Pharmacy in New Mexico on multiple blogs.
