 I need a prescription filled, it's headache medication.  I don't want to wait two days w/ the base pharmacy- that's how long it takes.  Can I take the bottle to Walgreen's or something like that??  I'm an idiot for letting it run out.  : /

You would have to get the prescription transfered first. :( The bottle isn't good enough.

Call your doc, have them fax it over.

Oh crap, you can try just calling the pharm. But I know at our hospital, it's easier to get anything done through my doc over trying to talk to the people in the pharm.

 You should be able to take the bottle to Walgreen's of wherever. They should be able to get the information from the base pharmacy. Good luck.
