Although there are dangers involved with buying medicine over the Internet, there are also dangers with getting your prescriptions filled at your local CVS pharmacy. Unfortunately, big retail pharmacy chains like CVS are pushing their pharmacists to fill more prescriptions in not as much time. The problem with this is that pharmacists end up cutting corners—making more prescription errors—and patients suffer the consequences.

Although you may be picking up small pills at the pharmacy, it is important to remember that small pills can be very powerful. They have the power to help you or hurt you. So every time you fill a prescription and pick up your medication at the pharmacy, you need to realize that there is a potential for a pharmacy tech or pharmacist to make a mistake with your prescription.
