West End Washington DC Feb. 2016 I went to Walgreens for prescription of federally controlled substance Tramadol 50MG for my federal service back injury (neurosurgery at L5-S1).
Pharmacist Roshon Rnadeniya gave me Tramadol with no prescription, he requested no identification and he gave them to for free. My prescription had not arrived and he said he'd deduct tablets he gave me once my doctor sent the prescription. When I arrived, pharmacist Misty Carney gave me a full prescription. I had way more Tramadol than the prescription was written.
When I reported this to Walgreens and the Drug Enforcement Administration, Carney and Randeniya manipulated quantities on my next prescription to account for the free tablets they gave me. I sent all these documents to Was. DC Board of Pharmacy and they don't care. DEA agents don't care.
Walgreens has market power and I am a stockholder, but it is scary when a retail pharmacy this big has this much power to freely dispense addictive painkillers. After I reported Carney and Roshon, Walgreens moved them to stores in Maryland. Carney was moved back to a Walgreens in Anacostia, a poor section of DC.
Walgreens is "showing their support for poor communities" by putting a pharmacist who freely distributes *** I'm continuing to try to get Carney's license suspended/revoked, but its work when Walgreens supports crooks. Happy to talk with anyone who cares about the prescription drug epidemic in US.
