Where do you get prescriptions filled?
i always wondered what the benefit or difference was of getting prescriptions filled at different places...
i like Walgreens because it is SUPER close to my house. I once went to Walmart and had to wait almost 30 minutes. I guess if I was shopping it would not make a difference but to have to go in and wait just to get an RX is crazy...Walgreens gets most of mine done in 5-10 minutes! I know there are also stand alone traditional pharmacies ... but I like the drive up option at walgreens... Ha ha can you tell i like walgreens? Oh and I forgot about grocery store pharmacies too...do you ever use them?
I must admit i have only used a grocery store pharmacy if they are offering an incentive on a new RX or transferred RX they give gift card when transferring... but alas I usually transfer back.
What are your preferences and / or experiences?
At Wal-Mart, I waited for about 20 minutes even though there was only one person in front of me. They appeared to have a full staff so I wasn't sure why it took so long. When I checked in, the pharmacy tech told me it would take 45 minutes. 0_o Most of the time it isn't that long. However if we had a Walgreens near us I would definitely go there. I'm not sure if the prescriptions cost the same as they do at Wal-Mart, but I really liked the fact that I was in and out in no time there.
I do not like Fred Meyers because way too many people in line all the time.
