I have been using pain medication for three years now and I am consistently having trouble with my Walgreens in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I have a legitimate pain mgmt doctor whom writes my scripts and for the last year the pharmacy has given me ***. From calling the doctor to verify the script is legitimate to calling my primary care to verify that I should be taking these meds to accusing me of pharmacy shopping if I don't use their Pharmacy for all my refills.
Recently this is how it goes... on average the person I hand the script to will spend 20 minutes trying to find a reason not to fill my script, the latest excuse is that the refill is too soon, (yeah thats why the doctor wrote me another one huh, for the day I am filling it on) or whatever reason seems to suit them, tell me no they can't fill the script, then I call my pain mgmt doc, he calls the pharmacy and they end up filling it anyway and being extremly cruel to me in the process.
At this point I have had enough and changed Pharmacy's but I wanted to let other people out there know that they are not alone when it comes to the abuse Walgreens dishes out to people on pain meds. I don't understand why Walgreens techs & pharmacists think it is okay to be nasty and belligerent to people just because they are on pain meds? Please don't stay silent, I am writing a letter to corporate and urge you to do the same, this attitude is unacceptable, when you are already in pain this kind of treatment only sets you further back from relief. God Bless
