How can you be that stupid?

I saw this happen twice today, so I figure that I had better make the issue known.  Plus it really really pissed me off. Both patients came in within the past 2 weeks with new Rx’s in hand.  One was for a change in Lantus (dose cut in half), the other was for a change […]

A retrospective look at 3 years, 200+ entries, and a whole lot of booze & tears

Once in a while I’ll do these retrospective posts after reading some of the old entries that I have made.  Think of it as a “Final Thoughts” like Jerry Springer does (only this is FAR from my final thought).  This isn’t a space filler so the site will have new content for you to read […]

Ethics and the lazy

Contrary to popular belief, there is a ton of ethical crap that goes along with being a Pharmacist. Prime Example:Family comes in who are on welfare.  They bring you Rx’s for 2 bottles of amoxicillin (one for each kid) and for some OTC tylenol liquid.  You run their Medicaid through and they were terminated.  You […]

Friday + start of the month = very angry pharmacist

The first of the month is always super stressful for pharmacists.  Not only are we usually busy, but it seems like everyone saves their shit/drama to explode on us.  If you think that I’m a callous asshole (and obviously are not a pharmacist because if you were you’d understand) then read on and maybe it’ll […]

Fibromyalgia is the new Low Back Pain

This post is due to an educational grant from The Raging Server.  Blame him that I’m ripping on all of the FibroFakers(tm, ie: TAestP dont steal this). Usually when I write stuff like this which pisses off a ton of people, there is an implied concept that I’m bitching about one small subclass of people.  […]
