The pharmacy that had been...
The pharmacy that had been filling my prescription was a small nice family pharmacy. This month after an enjoyable 8 years being their customer, the pharmacy sold his business to Walgreens and transfered the prescriptions to Walgreens. In person I paid a visit to Walgreens to check if the transfers had gone to them. The pharmacist lady said they were in the"works" and in another day I could get them filled. I went back next day and the transfers had been recieved by Walgreens. The man pharmacist said" When a pharmacy in Ohio sells its records and closes, its a state law that you have to go back to the doctor and get brand new prescriptions sent to Walgreens. My doctor leaves for home by 4pm that tuesday so I went down to the clinic and saw her personally. If I did not go the next day would have been thursday. Is it a law that a patient has to go back to their doctor for new prescriptions when the old pharmacy sells its business to a company like Walgreens? Signed by Patient by his own efforts avoided 2 days without sleep and a possible trip to the psyc hospital. Is this a law?No thanks to the pharmacist at walgreens. He is wrong. Or is he right

Hi this is Dr. Rollins I am a board certified licensed pharmacist with over 15 years of experience. In the state where I practice this is not the case. I would suggest calling the state board of pharmacy for your state to get the most correct answer. The phone number for the state board of pharmacy in Ohio is(###) ###-####

Ohio state board of Pharmacy representative, said"there is no such Ohio law" The rx guy did not know what he was talking about.

I was thinking that would be the answer you would receive from the state board. Sorry that pharmacy told you that. Thanks for the question and I hope you will be able to get your prescriptions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
