Your pharmacist should have gotten their id and have that on file for your drugs I have to show them mine every time I pick mine up. To prove who I am. I would report this they were your meds if you don't have some one that is authorized to get them if you can't. They would know this as well. They still must show id. This is a pharmacy mistake. And if it is someone you chose they have them on file. I would say you could not trust them again. If your pharmacy is cvs or Walgreens report it to the district office. I once had mine being stolen buy the manufactures I was shorted ten pills that came in a sealed bottle.
Maybe it's just me but I think the follow up needs to be done by the pharmacy!
It was their mistake!
First... think about anyone that may have done it. Make sure before you report it because this goes to the state.
I had a housecleaner for 10 years.
I happened to go out when she was leaving. She came in after I left and stole 1/3 of my monthly script.
It took 2 hours of sitting in the sheriff's office. They checked records on everyone living in the house. I dare not go to the doc for more!
They could not charge her because I didn't see her do it.
You have a different situation. I'd insist the pharmacy resolve it because the theft was from them !
Who knows? It may have been one of their staff.
You have a good chance of getting it replaced from the doctor if you never got it.
In the past when you picked up your narcotic medications have you had to sign for the prescriptions?
Usually the pharmacy has an electric notebook/pad that you must sign before the Pharmacy will release the medications to you.
Lastly, I too agree with the other two members that somebody you knew must have picked up your prescriptions.
Best of luck getting them back!
Whoever picked up your rx also had to know your birth date. Occassionally my roommate picks my narc pain med and they always ask for my b-day. This sounds like someone that knows you. Either that, or the Pharmacy made a huge mistake. I am in Georgia and they all require i.d to pick up pain meds of the person they are written for. You need to follow up on this, number 1 to get your meds, and 2, to possibly find out who did it. I would also recommend asking the pharmacy to flag your account to require YOUR i.d. for all future pickups.. Best of luck, ChelleKay
The pharmacy must have been given a pretty compelling story and the people with your script had to know you had submitted the prescription to be filled. To get your pills you need to report it as a theft or fraud to the police and then your doctor may re-order.
