Walgreens has shorted me of pain medication - I've had 6 surgeries in the past year and this is critical. Someone is pocketing these pills! I am a patient at a pain clinic and will be pursing this issue and will inform them as well. Walgreens does not list the name of the person that actually counted and filled the medication so who is accountable?

Whoever is behind this is either using the drugs or selling them.

You fully trust that you are getting what was prescribed, then get home to find you were shorted. If you call them, they "suggest" that maybe you were doing something wrong.

I will never leave there again without having them count every single one in front of me, and re-count if necessary, perhaps find another pharmacy. Either way, do NOT leave without having them count in front of you.

Maybe you took your "pain pills" and while you were high on those took more and forgot!


Make sure you can count that high, might have to bring friend


Who is accountable? YOU ARE.

It is your responsibility to make sure your prescription is correct before leaving the pharmacy counter. Count your pills in front of the pharmacy staff. Once you leave, you have no evidence that the pharmacy personnel "shorted" your prescription.

It could be argued that you pocketed the pills yourself. Seems to only happen with narcotics ...
