Re: [IP] Co-ordinating Perscription refills



Summer,

You are not alone!  I take 14 medications for diabetes, and heart
conditions.  I'm known on a first name basis at Wal Mart.

When I call or bring a prescription in, they ask, "Will that be it?"

And I always answer, until I take my next set of meds and find I'm low on
something else.

My worst story was running out of insulin two times during holidays.  Wal
Mart was closed and I had to pay full retail at another pharmacy.  (Ohio
allows sales of insulin over the counter).  It was six times more expensive!

My most frequent trip day was three in one day before going to Canada.

Chris
