Just one Valtrex
I had a lady call at 4AM looking for a refill on Valtrex she swore she filled at my pharmacy. There had been no prescription for Valtrex filled under her name and birthdate ever. She explained that it was an emergency and she needed just one tablet. Can I give her one? Since there are laws regarding the dispensation of medication that require an active prescription I can't give her "just one Valtrex." Give me a break! I am not the tablet fairy, I cannot wave my magic wand and make the laws go away so you can have "just one Valtrex." I don't care what they do for you in Canada or Mexico. This is the US. We have to follow the laws of the US. Oh yeah, and besides that one Valtrex does not get rid of a genital herpes outbreak. Go to a doctor. I can't stand people who think that just because there is a pharmacy open at 4AM that any med can be obtained for any reason. People wonder why pharmacists get bitchy or develop a problem with alcoholism. People like her are the reason. Take your twisted sense of self-entitlement and stick it up your colonic opening!
