Walgreens vs. CVS Pharmacy
We currently get my husbands prescriptions at CVS. I believe after this month I am going to transfer all scripts to Walgreens. There are two things that I have found very irritating about the pharmacy at CVS.
1) Their computer system isn't linked between stores. If you use the pharmacy on the south side and happen to be by the north side store they won't have your prescriptions on file. Walgreen's systems are all linked and you can get your scripts filled at any one of their locations. At least this is what I have been told.
2) My husbands prevacid medication has been "lost in the system" by CVS. This is how it was explained to me by the pharmacist at CVS. We had this prescription transferred closer to our home at the CVS down the street. It was originally at a CVS near the hospital. He had 2 refills remaining. We went this week to get it refilled and they said it had been voided out of their system and they were not sure why. They believed it happened somewhere in between the transfer. Very irritating to have to call the doctor and ask for him to send a new prescription request over to the pharmacy so he could have his medication.
When it rains it pours... but when the blessings come they overflow!
