Walgreens Complaint - Won't Admit They Shorted Me Pills
GILBERT, ARIZONA -- The regulars on this site know that I've been experiencing a lot of pain the last 2 weeks. I rely on prescription pain pills to help deal with the pain. My doctor currently has me on Norcos.
Last Wednesday, my doctor wrote me another prescription for Norcos. My previous fill was for 30 pills. He upped the dosage to 50 pills. I take on average 4 pills a day: 2 in the morning and 2 at night. If I am in extreme pain, I take 1 or 2 extra pills during the day. But I never exceed 6 pills a day.
Today, I was shocked to see I only had 6 pills left. I did the math in my head, and I should have half my pills left. The only thing I could think of is that Walgreens mistakenly gave me 30 pills instead of 50. Since my previous fill was for 30, I could see how a mistake like that could be made. There's no way I took 44 pills in 6 days. That's at least 7 pills a day, and I know I have never taken that many in one day.
I went down to Walgreens to ask the Pharmacist if it's possible they made a mistake. She got very defensive and said that they gave me 50. She said someone who lives with me probably took my pills. I know that's impossible, because I spend all day in bed, with my prescription bottle on the dresser next to me. The Pharmacist refused to help me and said she was really busy and that I need to investigate what happened.
I know nobody took my pills and I know how many I take in a day. They shorted me pills and refuse to acknowledge their mistake. Luckily, I have one more re-fill left on my Norcos. I will be taking my business elsewhere after the last re-fill and I will count out the pills BEFORE I leave the store.
