I received a text stating her refill wasn't yet ready. Okay, no big deal. She's on two seizure medications (Topamax and Carbatrol) and sometimes, one or both have to be ordered and it only takes a day or two. No worries, the refill reminders are usually sent about a week before your prescription is due to run out, so she had plenty of medication left. Well. I get another one and another one and another one. Pooh.
I was blown away! All these years of using Walgreens, I never knew they could do that. Granted, she's never missed an appointment nor has she run out of refills. I just think that was nice to know! I also didn't know that you could chat with a pharmacists on their website via Pharmacy Chat! Heh. The things you learn!
It worked out in the end! I picked up her Carbatrol and some Walgreens brand ear wax remover (the house brand version of Debrox) per the pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I did get a text yesterday that her Topamax was ready (I left a voicemail for the neurologist's office that I needed another refill and to please fax her order for the EEG to the Children's Hospital because the other hospital wasn't calling me back. Her neurologist has always been very responsive on her needs, so I knew there was a good reason that there was a hold up and it was also partially my fault for not following through).
One thing that is very cool is that Walgreens has an app. Yeeeahhhh... there's an app for that! Haha. I had to! However, seriously, they have an app and I never knew it before this past week! I am so glad I know about it now, though!
This app is fantastic! You can set up your medication schedule and you can order your refill via scanning the bar code OR you can enter your RX number. It's brilliant! I also love the various other uses, too. Create a shopping list, clip coupons, order photos, etc. It's an all in one app for Walgreens! I'm a fan! I know I will definitely utilize it. I could have used it when Emma had her tonsils and adenoids removed in April. I had to set an alarm every four hours for the Lortab, giving her ice packs, pushing water and taking her regular prescriptions! Ugh!
Have you used any of Walgreens' services?
