It was bound to happen sooner or later. My “specialty” meds can no longer be filled at my local drug store. Instead, for my “convenience,” I’ll have to drive 22 miles to Walgreens, instead of 3 miles to my local pharmacy. How the &*!%$ is that convenient?!
Methotrexate and Cimzia are both on the list.
Now, I realize that one option is to get prescriptions through the mail, but I have heard so many horror stories about the incompetence of mail-order pharmacies that I don’t see that as a very good solution.
Furthermore, one doesn’t have to read very many pharmacy blogs to be aware that Walgreens is one of those pharmacies that have a truly horrible reputation for pushing pharmacists to do more and more work in less and less time, without enough manpower to ensure patient safety. I guess I can be relieved that my particular meds affected by this are ones that just require slapping a label on the box.
