I am using a big chain pharmacy and I think I have to change that because they so don't care at all. They think I'm crazy for thinking that it could be something in how the medication either gets to them, is stored in their warehouse or stores, or combination thereof.
Does that knot your knickers as much as it does mine? Before I started mail ordering my Armour, I was getting it from - I'll say their name out loud - Walgreen's. Each month, I was shorted one tablet. After 4 months of that, I went in and must have looked like a strangler whom they should pay some attention to. A little old (and I mean old, like 75) pharmacy tech finally looked into it. He explained that they dispense according to weight
of the med, not the count
of the tablets. The weight in the database for 30 tablets of 120 mgs was light, therefore, they were giving me only 29 pills each month. He then had the audacity to say "It's the most accurate method." I was louder than I should have been when I yelled back, "Well... Obviously NOT!"
If you can imagine every 2-grain Armour-user in America getting shorted every month, that saves Walgreen's a lot
of pills. Plus, most people don't count their tablets when they refill, so they are likely running out of med earlier than they should, but their insurers are not allowing them to refill because they limit refills to within a week of using up the previous refill. They may have to go without med for several days before the insurer allows them a refill. (Don't know if that made sense... but I
know what I mean. lol )
Yes, I have to wonder about the expiration date on their wholesale supply. Although, Levoxyl is a popular brand, and turnover should be high at a large chain. But still... I wonder about their quality control.
