Complaint / review text:
Avoid Walmart and go to a local 24-hour pharmacy.
If the Walmart pharmacy is closed during regular business hours and has completed filling your prescription, there is no way to get it until the pharmacy decides to open again. It cannot be picked up at other Walmart pharmacy stores.
Walmart's Pharmacy irresponsibility and negligence caused me to miss dosages of my medication and experience severe withdrawals.
Walmart notified me via text message that my prescription was ready to be picked up and the pharmacy was open but upon my arrival at 2pm, the pharmacy was closed for the day. When I explained to the store manager that it was vital that I pick up the medicine and if a pharmacist could be called in, he said that the pharmacy was closed and nothing could be done. He also said that no other Walmart pharmacy was open in Atlanta. I found an open Walmart pharmacy but they could not fill my prescription without the approval of the store at which I had submitted my prescription and that store was closed.
I am shocked that Walmart closed their pharmacy during regular business hours without any way to address the emergency medical needs of customers. Walmart also notified me that it was open and prescription was ready when it wasn't and there was no pharmacist on call.
Hopefully, the pharmacy will be open tomorrow. The withdrawals from my missed dosage are severe and miserable and since my prescription has already been filled, insurance will not pay for a second prescription from my doctor.
