I just looked back at the post about what happened with my meds when I tried to get them on the way home, I realized I left out the conclusion.
Basically after I cried with the pharmacy and hospital, I went home thinking all kinds of awful things, mainly that I was going to be put back into the hospital before we even knew if this would work. I looked up the manufacturer at home and called them. Emsam definitely is still being made. I called Walgreens and explained my extreme unhappiness, and that given I had called ahead, I felt that being greeted with this kind of information upon release from a long psych stay was incredibly unprofessional. As I think about it now I realize it was even worse, because they accepted all my scripts and filled them when they already knew I wasn't going to be getting the big one there. They refused to apologize or accept responsibility, saying that it is their supplier who doesn't carry it (that is not what the said or what I have in writing), that there was no need to call and let me know this, and eventually they gave me the phone number for someone who might have it, but they didn't know why I would want to take a $700 medication anyway. I pointed out that THAT was none of their business. I called the other pharmacy and they did have it, so I'll pick it up tonight before I see Dr. Mind.
So, complaints will be made when I'm feeling ready to do that. But that Walgreens is one I've used a ton over the years and I'm kind of sorry to be moving on. However, I will not accept that kind of treatment......Especially since when they saw me crying and they KNEW that drug was just not carried by their manufacturer they could have explained that they didn't have it but someone else would. They could have called and transferred the script for me. Instead they made a difficult say a billion times worse.
