Holy He11!!

 Boy am I glad I looked. My 10 yr old is asthmatic,and takes singulair& claritin as "controller" meds....he has a nebulizer that is used as needed. I pick up his scripts early because I don't like running out or to even be close to running out! Well, I went to fill his scripts yesterday and the pharmacy gave us Lipitor!! When I returned it the pharmacist says:

 "What? You don't want it?"

  Me : "No. I would like my SON'S prescription though!!"

  What is Lipitor even for? The meds had the right patient name on the box....just the wrong meds.    :+(




Thought for the day :

 Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible that way.

Isn't Lipitor a blood pressure medicine, or something to do with the heart?  

I have a problem with one pharmacy here.  They always try to give me my husband's cousin's medicine.  I went in one day to get my daughter's one (1) prescription, and they pulled out five (5) bags of medicine.  I told them that she only had one.  They looked at me like I was crazy.  I had to point out that they had different first names on them.
