It has been over a year since any Walgreen pharmacy in Mobile, Alabama has been able to keep a certain medication (that is not unusual) in stock. Even though I use a particular branch of Walgreens (Knollwood Drive and Cottage Hill Road), and even though the pharmacist has on several occasions told me that they will keep the prescription which they know must be renewed every month on hand, they don't.

Not only that, there is no Walgreens in town that has enough of the capsule to fill the prescription. I know that this is a controlled substance, and I know that partial prescriptions can not be filled, but one would think such a company with a store on every other street corner could keep thirty tablets on hand. Even though I spend hundreds of dollars each month at Walgreens, I have to get this particular pill from Rite-Aid. The District Office will not even pick up their phone and the pharmacies force me to drive to each pharmacy in town to ask if it is in stock. My doctor says it is not an unusual drug and there should not be a problem with keeping it on hand. So why am I lied to every month when I am told that it will be in stock? Clearly Walgreens wants my business, but when it comes to serving my medical needs, they are a RIPOFF!

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Not having an item, whether it is pills or an household item is not a RipOff.

Apparently Walgreens does not want your business if they keep saying they will stock it and don't. So if Rite-Aid is the one that has these pills then why not move ALL your prescriptions to them and be done with Walgreens?
