Let's see 5 times within the last 3 months I have been shorted on my scripts and I don't mean by a little, we are talking a full third!!

Since the first time it happened I always take a rough count before I leave the pharmacy.

What is most troubling is the fact that they were all filled by the same chain. Shorted 5 times in 3 months at 3 different locations

Hmmmmmmmmmm Makes ya wonder

By the way I will give everyone a hint
It's a big chain pharmacy
The name starts with a C ends with an S
There are 3 letters in the name [bonk]

Well Beth the only aversion I have to dumping them out is thinking of all the runny noses, coughing and misc. drips of who knows what that preceeded me on the counter. I admit it has crossed my mind though.

Their excuse is always the same.....oops we're sorry.

BCB,
I never counted either until I called for refill and they told me it was too soon. I was taking them as prescribed yet wound up like a week and a half short.

Then it dawned on me they never gave me enough to begin with. They promptly gave me the remainder after I had a little chat with them.

I wouldn't have thought twice about it if it hadn't happened again and again and so on.

Alice, that doesn't suprise me in the least. Those dirty rat b*&&%##ds.

Alice, they are allowed to fill your RX with different generic brands. I've had this happen many times. They usually put a note on the label of the outer paper bag that details the change. Sometimes the techs notice and tell me about it when I check out, sometimes they don't.
