Hey are chemist knowledge higher than the doctors. I am getting grilled from getting script from them and getting third degree in the what I am taking for and how I am doing and how long I been on them. is this any of their business considering my dr gets all pre approved by the dependency board. Why do they have to do that is control or mean, does nayone know what it is. makes me feel yuck as I am not making it up and last thing I need is there criticism of me in front of the shop. Makes me not want to come back

Toni not all chemists put you through the third degree, but just lately it seems to be getting worse even if you have been going to the same chemist for a long time, whether it is the stigmatisation associated with chronic pain or the greater powers that have been handed to them to be able to write sick certificates, no they are not doctors and the only advice they should be giving you is how and when to take your meds and possible side effects and also how to store them, other than this it is none of their business. Next time just ask them are they your treating doctor, and if they have trouble you taking your meds give him or her a ring as they have written the script, and just let them know they are discriminating against you as this should not be done in front of a shop full of people.

hi toni.i agree with grappers,if you go to a chemist where they know you,you will get treated really good without the third degree but i have found if i go to other chemists,they always give me the third degree because they don't know me and what i use.the chemist people should not give the third degree to someone who has a valid script.it is a hassel for patients to be treated that way and i wish most chemists would not do it.
