Yes you need to count them in the pharmacy, or have them count them in front of you. The big chains have those machines that dispense the pills via computer...but computers are run by humans, therefore mistakes still happen.
I am just as bad as you are about not wanting to cause friction...but I have been coming up short and I think I need to be my own advocate and ask them to count for me, I only have 2 scripts so it won't be as bad as 6 bottles..but who cares what they think, it's not their medicine.
And I think they would do the same thing..
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...
