Complaint / review text:
I have been dealing with chronic pain from back surgery and fibromyalgia for about 7 years years and it has only been getting worse. With my new Obamacare Medical plan, I am only allowed to get my prescriptions filled at Rite Aid or Walmart pharmacies. The last several months I take my prescriptions in to get filled, there is always some excuse. Mostly the excuse is that they don't have my brand of Fentanyl patch in stock. It frustrates me to no end because we always call ahead to make sure they order them so they will be in on time. One time I was told they have $20,000.00 of a brand called Apotex and had to sell those before they could make any special orders.
I went to more than 10 different pharmacies within 2 days looking for a pharmacy that had them in stock and I finally found a Walmart that had the Watson brand, which works better than the Apotex, but not as well as the Mylan, which is what I prefer. This month I am waiting to get my Soma, which should have been filled Saturday, but have been told they are out and so is their distributor. What the hell?!?
I have now been without that med for 5 days and we STILL don't know when we can get it! Problem is they already filled my Vicodin so I can't take it to another pharmacy. Not to mention they said all the Rite Aids are out of that med. I am beyond pissed at this point because I've had to wait at least a week each month to get one of my three meds. This is so ridiculous because I go to the same pharmacy every month! It makes me hate all pharmacies period. I am in so much pain that I can't sleep or even do anything without being in excruciating pain. Something needs to be done about this immediately!
