Advice & Tips: A huge pain to get this time. This girl said we will order and fill it 8/5. I said you realize it a 20 day supply and I am out 8/4. She said there is enough till the 8/5, but I told her from what I see this med is out 8/4 and I still have a partial fill. I griped up a storm. The owner nor anyone said sorry except my tech. She said from know on ask for me. That is not good to make someone go without med. Yesterday They said 1 of the medications never came in the order so should I send all on 8/9. I said that one yes but all others 8/7 I am totally out of Aptiom.

Advice & Tips: HATE! how the new pharmacy dispences ake 1200mg 1.5 800 mg pills dailyThey said it is a pricey medication and you are the only person on it. So we will only send bottles of 30. I said will medicaid allow you to send me 60 in 1 month? They said yes we will apply the extra extra to the next months allowance. So l got 30 pills then when 5 days remain I have to order the remaining 15. So end up ordering this medication twice a month. Thank God they deliver! Their reasoning its they do not want to break a seal so I know I am getting my medication ordered. This is a total first for me. so have to order it every 10-15 days.
