I just picked up my prescriptions from the pharmacy. Ever since they shorted me once a while back, which caused me to panic because it is a controlled substance, I always check my prescriptions before I leave the pharmacy. Well, it happened again today. Bottled said quantity 60 but when I looked at it, it obviously only had 30 in the bottle. The pharmacist apologized and quickly corrected the mistake. As this particular prescription is a controlled substance, had I not noticed and ran out half way through the month, I would have been in dire straights with no recourse to prove his mistake. Or was it?

Just wanted to share this experience and word for the wise, always check your prescriptions before leaving the pharmacy.
