Why Pharmacist Deny Your Scripts-How To Avoid Them Saying "No"
You have always wondered why pharmacist or their staff says no to filling your drugs. Well, I am here to break the cycle.
One, never doctor or pharmacy shop which just means do not go from one doctor's office or pharmacy to another to get any drug. It doesn't matter what drug it is, it looks terrible, and medical institutions can now see each other's work and notes. If you do, you will become flagged in one of the national databases and then getting medication will become next to impossible.
Two, you need to be patient. Even if you're in pain, you must never rush the pharmacy. A pharmacy is still a medical institution, and they need to make sure they do everything correctly.
An example is saying " I need it in 5 minutes." The pharmacy staff is trained to see this as a red flag, and they will deny your script, even if they just said they would fill it for you because you tried to rush them. Nothing can be completed in 5 minutes no matter how fast the staff moves. There are a lot of checks to be done before the medication gets into your hands. The simple reason for this is because you do not want to get the wrong medication because it can KILL YOU and no one intends to go to jail, lose their license and job over a mistake.
Finally, never tell your life story. Most of you think allowing the pharmacy's staff to know what going on with you, or what you plan to do with the medication is helpful. Well, it's not. You actually hurt your cause, and they will change their minds about filling it. So please, don't say a word about what the drug is for, even if they ask. If they really want to know you just simply say "call my doctor for the exact diagnosis." Doing this will show you have no ill intent, plus it sways their decision in your favor.
"I am going to call corporate or the police because what you are doing is unlawful." Well, ladies and gentlemen, it is not unlawful for the pharmacy staff to say they do not want to fill your prescription. You could be in severe pain, and they still can say no. It is up to the pharmacist judgment whether to fill it or not. The staff just has to fill out a (refusal to fill form), and that would be the end of that. View the law at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1434764. So please, all of you who do this, you're wasting your time because the individuals at the corporate office are just going to listen to what you have to say and that's the end of it. Because the pharmacy is their primary source of business and they are usually best friends with the pharmacist.
