Melting Down at Target Pharmacy
Advertisements [?]
I was one of the unfortunates who lost there favorite pharmacist when Burch Pharmacy closed. I decided to use Target because there is a location close to my home.
Wednesday I went in to get a 'script that my doctor had sent to them from her office. Not only wasn't it ready but it wasn't even in the queue to be filled. I have asthma and when I get a severe cold it triggers an attack that my normal meds can't handle so I have to take a course of prednisone. Not a big deal if taken properly and over a short time period.
When I finally got to the counter and PAID for the drugs and started to reach for the bag the cashier jerked the bag out of my hand and took it over to the "Pharmacy Consultation" window. I told her I didn't want or need to see the pharmacist. She ignored me and walked away. At this point my fiancee came over and asked what the problem was. I was in tears, I was ill, I was short of breath and I needed to go home and lie down. I said loudly that they were refusing to give me the medication that I had just paid for; a young woman came over and picked up the bag of meds and said I had to talk to the pharmacist. At that point the melt down was complete so I grabbed the bag out of her hand and told her I had been taking Predisone for asthma longer than she had been on the planet and walked out.

Now I'm wondering about this "required" consultation. Could something like this be used to discourage women from getting morning after pills or birth control?
Frankly, it spooks me out.
