Walgreens in Independence, Ohio - Clerk needs to ask for the customer card up front

3.7
Details
i was purchasing 2 bottles of nature bounty buy `1 get 1. And i had a coupon. He was going to charge me full price. So i said get 1 free. He asks if i have a card. Well of course doesnt everyone. DAH. Then instead of listening to my phone number i had to dig it out. The clerk should ask for the card or phone number up front like all the other stores. This is my 2nd problem . 1 more i dont come back. ***

Well if you of course have a card and know you need it to get the discount then maybe you should be taking it out upon approaching the checkout counter. or just type in your number at the beginning of the transaction like everyone else and you wouldn’t have to DIG it out. DAH

What location was this at....Had the same thing happen to me twice at the Eastern Ave. Location in Baltimore md....they need to check there cameras or have machine count the prescriptions.

The poeple can not be trusted. There has to be a new way to make sure we are getting the correct amount

Most drugs in this country have multiple manufacturers. It keeps the costs of commonly used drugs affordable.

You could have had a reaction to an ingredient in the new manufacturer.

Or you could have a bug and got the *** at the same time you took the medication. It could possibly be coincidence.

Just ask who the manufacturer is, or look it up, and you can read the ingredient list.

Odds are, *** are a side effect of the drug in question, and you just got lucky until now, as one of the *** ingredients could be a bit more in the new pills.

It's illegal to give someone a narcotic that was not prescribed to them. You may want to let your daughter know that.

Walgreens Prescription Problem

Details
A little while ago I ordered medication for my mother, my niece, and myself. It took about three days for them to confirm that they received the electronic script. I was out of my seizure medication the first day and was blacking out at least four time a day for those three days. They then said that the medication I had ordered for my seizures was back ordered and they only had half of the medication amount. My mother complained to them to the point they DELIVERED my medication, as well as my mother's and my niece's meds. That is not the BIG issue. Thank God my niece looked at her medicine bottle before taking her night pills because the filled my mother's medication under her name and sent it out to her as her own. As their apology they took comped up for the medication cost. That wasn't enough for me so we switched pharmacies. Now we have a nice doctor who gets to know his customers personally, uses a credit line if you can't afford your meds right away, and delivers fo free. Walgreens in my eyes, as a pharmacy, has failed me and I will NEVER go back.

Why didn't you go to the hospital? They have drugs there for the people that NEED the drugs.

(As in will die or "blackout" with out them) didnt you daughter listen to the pharmacist about the drug she was getting.

That is oneself s responsibly to know what one is taking Or paying for. Im glad you found a system that works for you but realize not everyone needs a one on one.

A pharmacist may refuse to fill a prescription based on his or her professional judgment or for a variety of other reasons. For instance, a pharmacist may refuse to fill a prescription because of concern about a possible interaction with another drug you are taking, because he or she has questions about the dosage or because of doubts about the validity of the prescription.

If a pharmacist believes that the prescription for a controlled substance is issued for an illegitimate reason based on the answers to their questions, the pharmacist will refuse to dispense the medications.

Although pharmacists are not supposed to deny prescriptions based on quantity alone, that is not necessarily the case. And yes, pharmacists do have a right to this HIPPA protected health information in case you are wondering. - See more at: http://www.healthcentral.com/chronic-pain/c/240381/161487/refusing-prescriptions/#sthash.13hanxPI.dpuf

So pharmacists do have the legal right to refuse a prescription.

I am sorry you are in chronic pain, and hope you can find a pharmacist willing to work with you and your doctor, but this pharmacist has every right to say "I won't fill that prescription". Just like you have every right to take your business elsewhere.

If he is really in need take it to another pharmacy. It's very common for a pharmacist to want to follow up with the doctor on controlled substances before filling them.

A pharmacist can refuse to fill a prescription at his or her discretion. Another pharmacist may fill it without contacting the doctor.

Walgreens in Homestead, Pennsylvania - Pharmacist and peronal details

1.0
Details
This is in regards to the pharmacist at the Walgreens Homestead, Pa. Waterfront store. Giving out personal medical information on his customers while on the phone and while other customers are present. Some vital information that could be used by someone to certainly cause problems for a person. This guy thinks he is the lord and savior and everyone should abide by what he thinks is the law. You're a pill counter and NOT a physician. Shut your mouth, little boy, and count your pills! If you want to dictate the kinds of medications you think a person should and should not be taking for certain conditions, you should have gotten a PhD!

The little boys and girls behind the "pill counter" dictate your dependence on drugs. Given your attitude in this rant, I could probably relate to the lord and savior to which you inevitably abide to.
