The time for candy coating it is over….

I’m tired of candy coating and being all “politically correct” about this issue, so I’m just going to come right out and be an asshole. You’ve been warned: If you cannot speak clear English, do NOT call in prescriptions. Yes, I’m calling you all out: STOP FUCKING CALLING IN PRESCRIPTIONS IF YOU HAVE A THICK […]

How do you price your drugs?

I have a legit question. You may comment anonymously, use a fake email and name, however you wish. I’m not going to go running off taddling on you all for answering this question, I am legitly curious. How do you price your medication? I’m just curious how the chains do it vs the independents. Do […]

WHI Downtime – Walgreens again screws over everyone.

Turns out that Walgreens Health Initative (http://www.walgreenshealth.com not Walgreens the Retail Outlet. Same Bat-Time, different Bat-Channel) decided to do a “system upgrade” on a Monday that resulted in downtime all of Monday and Tuesday. Gee. You would think that with their bazillions of dollars they are making (since they pay us retail folk jack-and-shit) they […]

TAP – 2 / Drug Reps – 0

I swear, sometimes this website just writes itself. I wrote this a while ago, but you guys have already picked out all the choice material in the comments by the time i got around to post it. I have been in medical sales for my entire career, ten of those as a drug rep. I […]

Woah. I cant believe it.

I am one of those drug reps that you hate see walking through the door but I have to ask a serious question. Do you think that generic Coreg is equivalent in efficacy/tolerability to the branded Coreg? Also, since there will be 14 potential manufacturers of generic Coreg, will they all have the same effect? […]

GSK – 1 / TAP – 0 and what patients will do for their pain pills

Lets just say that I love generic Coreg. Seriously, just absolutely love it. If I could have sex with the bottle I would. Why? Its a generic that right when it hit the market was affordable. None of this $20 less than trade name crap. I’m talking bargain-basement cheaper than vicodin. I bought a years […]

Pharmacist Hate mail!

Ah, I love it when I get hate mail from other pharmacists. After reading this over, I mostly agree with him/her (surprisingly). Though I dont think CVS wants this persons name attached to what he/she wrote. 1) You don’t have the staff to handle the load from mail order pharmacies if they disappeared tomorrow. You […]

Mail Order Scum

Now everyone knows that nobody is safe from The Angry Pharmacist(tm). I always wonder why I never get featured in Drug Topics or any other pharmacy magazine that pharmacists read while taking a dump. I guess I’m too hard core (or use bad words way too often) to be in any cool magazines. Oh, yeah, […]

14 and pregnant – Warning! Offensive!

This entry is going to piss off some people. You’ve been warned, this is ‘the angry pharmacist(tm)’ and we know that we cant be angry without painting people/society/your mom with an extremely large overbearing brush. I also had a few beers after a long and frustrating day at work, be warned, be very warned. The […]

Oh yay, another uppity Medicaid person.

Usually I get a few bitches a month about my Clomid + Medicaid rant. About every other one is written by a complete idiot. You make the call as to which one this is. Are you stupid? Welfare and Medicaid are NOT the same. We’re not bums. WQe work. Medicaid is to help those who […]
