Depends on what it is. I have never had a problem. But if it's strong pain killers maybe not. Why don't you call and ask them. You will get accurate information that way.

Well when you continually get pain meds filled 2-3 days early, you end up stock piled with a good 20 to 30 days more meds than you are supposed to have after 10 fills. DEA steps in and can restrict fills even more. If you take your meds right then you should not need to get them filled early all the time.
wtf

It IS a refill. Why don't you call them and ask them. The only way you will get accurate information. It will likely depend on what it is. If it's pain meds probably not. The pharmacy usually says it is the insurance that blocks getting the refill early. If you pay for it yourself you can usually get it a day or two early.

If you take it like you are suppose to then you shouldn't need it early. Oh let me guess you are going on vacation and won't be here the day you are suppose to get it refilled. lol

And if you have been taking this for very long you should know without having to come to topix for your information. Actually, I am skeptical of anybody who would come to topix for actual information.

I am elderly and been going there for years and one of them yelled at me the last time I was in there. They might get burned out on those jobs bless their hearts.

Ive seen some of the girls get upset with customers, but I have to say the people they were going off on were loud mouth pill heads that blamed them for not being able to get their hydros or oxys early...I do not blame these girls, they can only tolerate so much mouth before they start giving it back! you go girls!!!!!

It's not up to the people that work there. It is all computerized. You can only refill meds for them to be used as prescribed. If you get a 30 day supply, you have to wait almost 30 days to refill. (They will let you refill a day or two early so you don't run out). Also, insurance will not allow charges to them to be processed too early

You are just mad because you couldn't get your drugs as early as you wanted. And I am sure CVS would do just fine if you took your welfare check to Walmart and got your drugs there.

How come a bunch of ass-holes have to chime in every time someone asks a simple question?And for your information it was Lopressor I was asking about and it's a blood pressure medication you bunch of dunb-ass's,everyone in this world is not a dope-head,and if you'd remove your head from your ass you might be able to see that.
And if you don't like the way they treat you open your mouth and tell them so..The only one up there I think is a smart-ass is the Big ole red head woman and she's manly as well...I have seen her tel people when they bring there prescription in to get filled after she's looked at it oh wait and let me see if we have that,and then go back and whisper something to the Pharmacist,had to be a narcotic for her to act all secret agent on the customer...
But as it shows here there's dumb-ass's no matter where ya go..Later

Looking for new pharmacy

Seems like every time I turn around someone on here is trash talking about me...Here's my reply to that, IF you are so immature that you can't say something so someone's face then you just DON'T MATTER TO ME. As for having to check and see IF we have something in stock at the pharmacy, WE as Pharmacy Technicians do NOT know the exact numbers of Narcotics that are in stock and when you see us "whisper" to the pharmacist it usually to ask IF they know what the current inventory is. Then we usually have to check to see what the current number is in stock and compare it to the quantity written on the prescription. AND also check to make sure that it isn't too soon to fill. Narcotics, pain meds and nerve meds are highly regulated by the DEA and we have to account for early refills. As for meds such as blood pressure or diabetic meds the insurance will usually let them go thru up to a week early depending on the specific contract. I hope that this answered the questions posted on here. AND Again, IF you don't like my looks, I DIDN'T ask to be 6 ft tall. And IF I have an attitude it could be because I have been through 3 armed robberies in the past 3 years...Try putting yourself in our shoes for a change before you come on here trash talking.

I wasn't trash talkin anyone there lady,I was only expressing my opinion on the topic at hand.I was in no way poking fun at you or anyone else for that matter either,and my wife is a big bottomed girl as well,you remember the song"I LIKE BIG BUTT'S AND I CAN NOT LIE"? Well that' my motto..Beauty is only skin deep,but a person no matter how beautiful they are on the outside can sure make them selves look ugly by being hateful and judging everyone that comes in up there with a prescription for pain meds. as a dope head or as looking to get high.
Some of the people that come in there to get pain meds. no doubt are pure junkies or dealers,but not all.Some folks need there meds. to be able to function in normal everyday life as well.
Next time someone bring's a prescription in up there for pain meds. put your self on the other side of the counter and see how you would feel if the Pharmacy Tech was whispering something about you or your prescription to the Pharmacist without even thinking about the feeling's of the customer.It's sad to judge people anyhow,let alone make them feel like dogs for getting medication they need to function when society already looks down on anyone who takes them..
I bet if you'd show a little more compassion towards your customers you'd even feel better about yourself,and I know the customer would feel better for sure by not feeling be little'd for getting there prescription filled..It's just a thought try not being so hateful to customer's for a change PLEASE....Later. And I'm sorry about you getting robbed like that,but honey I'm not the one who did it so why take it out on me or anyone else for that matter???? Have a good Evening....Thanks for listening I hope anyway...
