I take two ssris and have for over 5 years one of them is Paxil which is now questionable for birth defects and I am pregnant. I have had two children on Paxil and my Doctor and I decided it was best to stay on it. I have tried getting off it before. This pharmacist filled it once but talked to my Doctor and called me to tell me about her sister who had a baby w\ birth defects but they were not Paxil related. Anyway I don't know if she won't fill it b\c its two ssris or because Paxil may cause birth defects.Answer Question

Any owner of a business can refuse service. A pharmacist is a provider of a service so they can refuse. I they feel a medication is dangerous or conflicts with another medicine your on they can not fill it and call the doctor to alert them to the problem. If the doctor still wont change the med and thinks it should be filled the person can go to another pharmacy.
