Rite Aid Pharmacist Review from New Jersey, United States

59 of 462 Rite Aid reviews

Last Monday I had nine teeth pulled and my upper jaw and was given a prescription for 20 Vicidon.The pharmacist would not fill it because she said it had Tylenol in it and that was no good for me to go back to the dentist and get a prescription for Vicodin with no Tylenol.

I'm staying in there in pain and she is trying to save the planet.

I give about $50,000 worth of business to the store.Guess who's not going to CVS

Tylenol is another name for acetaminophen. Sounds like the pharmacist found an interaction with some other drug you take or found it should not be taken with the medical history you gave her or with other medicines you told her you take. For example, acetaminophen can damage the liver if you take certain other drugs or if you have certain diseases. You might be taking other drugs that contain acetaminophen and the prescription might put you over the toxic dose. It's obvious from this post that you did not understand her explanation. Acetaminophen will not damage the planet. The pharmacist shelves are full of it under different names. This is your dentist's fault. He should have given you the script before you had the work done so you could have it filled beforehand. That's what mine did.

How do you give $50k of business to the store annually. Is there something we should know about your other ventures?

A Pharmacist cannot legally refuse to fill a legitimate prescription. I have had the same problem with CVS and have filled a complaint against them. Go to Walmart Pharmacy.

So they tried to help you out and save your health and this is all you have?
Assuming the dentist was still open, why didn't you call them and have you phone in what the pharmacist said or let him/her know where the bear sits and fill the script?

Doctors can't call in controlled substances to the pharmacy. (Or so I've been told!)
