Complaint / review text:
My doctor just put me on a new medication (Ventolin) because I could not afford my original prescription. Well I got on the $9 program at Walmart pharmacy with the Relion Ventolin. Let me just say that the medicine is a big waste of my money. It does not stop an asthma attack. I am still left with shortness of breath and the tight felling in my chest, plus the product only has 64 doses. Well I used my samples that my doctor gave me. Not really happy about the medicine, but it is the only thing I can afford. So I called my local Walmart pharmacy to fill my prescription. I got the medicine and went to use it. Well no help at all with my attack. Really, it wasn't helping at all.
Well I started to look at the medication box and under the lot number I found the expiration date. It read two months past due. When I saw this, I became madder. My mother-in-law works for the pharmacy on an air force base. When I told her, she asked me if I was feeling okay since old medication can make you sick or even cause your death. Well I took the medicine back to Walmart and the pharmacist had the nerve to tell me that the company sent it to them like that. After I watched him get mad when looking for a new one for me, there were at least four boxes being thrown out. I know that the company does not send old medicines to companies.
