I had a prescription ready for the Target Pharmacy in Ansonia, CT today. It didn’t hurt to get early but unfortunately, it wasn’t the drug I actually needed.
I wish I checked my pills and did my weekly medications before I left the house.
When I did it tonight, I had enough through Sunday night of my mood stabilizer. Unfortunately, I will be away through Monday. And the Target Pharmacy which is now run by CVS in closed for Memorial Day.
So I tried to call the 24 hour CVS down the street and see what I can do. I got through to the pharmacy in five minutes the first time but before I finished my answer I was put on hold. I was then put on hold for more than five minutes and gave up. Then tried again and on hold for eight minutes. Then finally got through to someone unhelpful after 10 minutes and finally talked to the pharmacist who said I couldn’t get it filled because of no refills.
45 minute to finally learn I have no call my doctor tomorrow. I’m not impressed.
Pharmacists should have abilities to do a lot more than they usually can. They are incredibly highly trained professionals.
And I wish I checked for my weekly medications earlier. I might have been able to get this solved today.
If it wasn’t the fact that it was my tegretol, I would have just picked it up on Tuesday. I’m less worried about a statin or my lisonpril. So it goes.
