I hope all doctors don’t write this horrible.

So some ignorant horrible spelling doctors decided to harass the *Angriest* Pharmacist over a rant I made about some idiot with 4 degrees who couldn’t write coherently to save his life. Now I may rag on the Angriest Pharmacist for stealing my idea and stuff, but I got his back when some uppity fuck decides […]

Tinfoil hats for everyone!

I saw this comment on Kevin MD’s blog about a rant of mine. The url is: http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2008/01/paying-cash-for-narcotic-prescription.html#comments The attitudes shown on the referenced blog also show why there is no confidentiality once a RX is filled. I had a doc who needed an antidepressant as a patient. The big clinic/hospital that he worked for also […]

What? Medwatch? I’m confused

Translated Drug Rep Speak

You will only find this here at “The Angry Pharmacist(tm)”.  It is a smuggled document from the headquarters of a training facuilty (the drug company shall remain nameless) about how to train drug-reps.  This is the secret code! Lets take a look: Doctor, can I speak with you for a min about a new product? […]

Lilly – Get with the program

As I have (and we all have) learned in school, a bottle of Humulin R or N is good for 1 month if kept at room temperature or if refrigerated good until the expiration date on the bottle.  Right? Not according to the Lilly Reps. They are telling doctors and other retarded janitor-types who can […]

Everything is my problem

A really frustrating part about retail pharmacy is that everything seems to be “my problem”.  Now I went to college for 7 years, got my PharmD, yadda yadda yadda.  I know about drugs.  I am trained in drugs.  Ask me about a drug and I will tell you everything you need to know about it. […]

DEA with their thumbs up their asses

Crusty RPh writes, DEA, DEA, DEA, Bullshit. Everyone worries about the DEA. The DEA has bigger fish to fry then worrying about me dispensing a Vicodin prescription to some jackass who got it down the street at another pharmacy 5 days ago. If I beleive the lost story, it is my decision. Fuck the DEA. […]

Not so hypothetical situation

OneAngryTech (http://one_angry_tech.livejournal.com) wrote in: Ok.. Pharmacist(s): Time for WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Cash-Patient A comes into your pharmacy with 2 prescriptions, 1 for Vicodin and 1 for Xanax. The prescription for Vicodin is 100 tabs, TID and Xanax is doesn’t matter. Patient inquires as to the price for the Xanax, but not the Vicodin. Your […]

A plea from a fellow independant

Working for an independent gives you sort of a bond with other independent pharmacists. From shitty reimbursements to dealing with patients; we don’t have the luxury of a ‘corporate office’ and people in suits with fancy lawyers to cover our asses. So I recieved this letter from a pharmacist in California. Since he claims he […]

HIPAA Primer for BravoRx

Dear BravoRx, Please get your collective heads out of your asses and research what is and is-not information that is protected by HIPAA.  Today I had to spend 20 min on the phone yelling at one of your representative because they would not give me the birth date they had on file (which was wrong) […]
