My Walgreens pharmacist never consults with me about my prescriptions. Aren’t I supposed to get a counseling session when I pick up my prescription?

Yes, you are supposed to get an opportunity to speak with a Walgreens pharmacist at the time you pick up your prescription. Beware that many pharmacies have their patients sign a small piece of paper at the time of pick-up that waives their rights to a consultation. If you sign this paper, even without knowing what it says, you relinquish your right to counseling.

It is federal law that all pharmacies are required to provide their patients with counseling about the prescriptions they fill. But because of time constraints and pressure to fill more and more orders, most pharmacists don’t voluntarily provide consultations to patients anymore; however, they should. Instead, you typically have to ask for your counseling session with the pharmacist.

It is beneficial to request your consultation and spend a few minutes with the pharmacist to review the medication that is being picked up and to review any other prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, or minerals you may be taking. This way, you can reduce your chances of suffering from drug interaction side effects or being a victim of pharmacy error.

If you have been harmed by your local pharmacy, you may have a Walgreens pharmacy lawsuit.
