I would have done the same thing.....interesting thing happened to me last month. I go to Sams Club Pharmacy and have for the last 5 years. I have developed a relationship with the Pharmacist and Tech over the years!
I took my Rx in on a Friday (the regular Pharmacist and tech were there) and went back on a Saturday to pick it up. There was the weekend Pharmacist and Tech working, I asked for my Rx and they looked at me suspiciously....they were whispering and came over and said there is a problem with my Rx. I said what is it, they said we don't have enough Percocet to fill 120 pills....I said okay so what do I do? The Pharmacist said do you take this as prescribed I said yes, WHY? He said well it seems like alot, I said yep it is but thats how it has been prescribed. He said okay, so the tech brings the bottle and its a full bottle. I said I don't understand you said you didn't have enough pills to fill the prescription. I opened the bottle and it was NOT Percocet, I said hold on here what is going on, this is not my usual medication and whats the problem? The Pharamacist started yelling at the Tech that he had dispensed the wrong medication. I felt so uncomfortable and told the Pharmacist I would rather come back on Monday and get it then. He was very rude and said NO we will get this right? I said okay and 5 minutes later they had the correct pills and amount. I asked how they suddenly had the Percocet and the correct number, he said it had just come in a few minutes ago.....the entire Pharmacy Dept is totally visible and I watched the Prescription being filled they did not open a box or bag or anything.......I felt really really wierd and on Monday called and told the regular Pharmacist what had happened, he told me he would take care of it.......still don't know what was going on but have not seen that Pharmacist or Tech since then.
