pharmacist gave me too many meds not too little



  • If your have any problems with your pharmacy, especially being shorted on controls you can contact your state board of pharmacy if the pharmacy is not willing to help you.

    Mistakes do happen. A pharmacy fills hundreds of scripts a day. The most likely error to occur is a counting problem in most pharmacies. If you consider the there is a limited number of staff, people dropping off and waiting for Rx's, people picking up Rx's, insurance problems, phone calls, management work, etc, etc, etc, it can be quite hectic.

    That said, all controls and narcs are to be double counted though. If you have been shorted notify the pharmacy and tell the state. If everyone does their part, and the state notices a pattern, well then somebody is going to be in trouble.

    You can also always ask to have your meds counted in front of you when you pay for them.
