    ive always had my prescriptions between Walgreens cvs walmart always a mess

  2. Shamell says:

    Is there anyway to know if they did this to you? I sometimes get calls about prescription stuff but I dont know if its from them because I always hang up or never answer in the first place

    ADMIN-Hi Shamell,
    If you don’t answer we are pretty sure your cellphone goes to voicemail which would allow for you to have a recording of your reminder. If you don’t have that chances are you are not affected.

  35. Mary Frazier says:

    I received numerous unwanted calls from the store. It was a harassing nuisance.

  36. susan cohen says:

    always call with recording even after picking up the prescription.

  37. Chyrl Duggan says:

    I used to get those phone calls, too. I would always answer them, mostly. I had several go to voicemail, but I stopped using Walgreen’s January of this year and transferred all my meds over to a local, family-owned pharmacy. I had a few reasons for dropping Walgreen’s. Those automated calls I would received were during a time I knew it was not time to reorder for the next month. I can only have a prescription filled a few days prior to the date filled of the previous month. I hadn’t caught on yet in the beginning. I would accept those calls and confirm the refills. I would call the pharmacy to see if the meds were ready to be picked up. They had no idea what I was talking about. I would always call prior to driving as it is hard for me to get around. I even had two instances of me being run out of medication because the prescriptions were marked that I had picked them up and when I would call, as usual, to see if my meds were ready they told me no because insurance had denied them because I had already had those meds showing filled and picked up. Um no. That was a huge run around to get fixed. I also had two times my pills were short a few. I get some benzo-type drugs and high -level pain meds. I’ve had the medication for so long that I must subconsciously know when the bottle doesn’t feel full. My anxiety medication was short 5 pills the first time and my pain meds were short 4 pills the second time. I could not do anything about it once I had signed and paid for them even if I was still at the counter. I had to actually have the pharmacist take the stapled bag, open it himself, and do a recount in front of me. He was so indignant and angry that he had to do this and he let me know that he was busy and didn’t have time for this. We had a few loud words at the pharmacy counter with other store guests behind me. I was not leaving without a pill count and I let him know why. I asked him why he was so angry and every time he just answered he was too busy to be doing trivial things as verifying my pills count in front of me. I let him know that only a guilty person with knowledge/participation in shorting pills would be so angry. That was the last time I had anything filled there. So, not only was I receiving these automated calls I had two incidents I should have reported to the authorities, but didn’t. So, do I have to prove I have received calls? I delete voicemails after I have no need for them.

    ADMIN – Hi Chyrl,

    You don’t have to prove it. Instead you have to provide the phone number where you received the calls and sign a sworn statement indicating that you did in fact receive the automated calls.

  38. Vinay Dulip says:

  39. Quacked says:

    Shocking loads of unwanted phone calls don’t recommend this

  40. Karen Johnston says:

    I did get calls about prescriptions from Walgreen and when I went to pick them up they didn’t have them or didn’t know about the calls

  41. Kim Mola says:

    What if its these calls to your landline number! Can I provide them my landline number! I have the proof I got these calls on my answering machine

    ADMIN – Hi Kim,

  42. Kim Mola says:

    ADMIN – Hi Kim,

  43. Jeremy penass says:

    I have the voicemails on my cell phone for reminders to refill my meds and I signed the form you sent is that all I need to do?

    ADMIN – Hi Jeremy,

    Yes, once you have submitted your claim all you need to do is wait.

  47. Christine Checke says:

    I used to get my calls from Walgreens ,They would leave messages and have nothing for you to pick up. I had changed stores they would mess up all the time.

  48. Luis D Medina says:

    I have two different files for my meds which i receive separate automated calls for. It been a few years since i tried to have walgreens just have one file open to prevent me to return for a second pick up. To this day its still the same and its a head ache to have walgreens look up both files and wait extra time for my second medication.

  49. Taschal Hill-Mize says:

    As of 8/16/15, I AM STILL RECEIVING THESE CALLS AND I HAVE NEVER SET UP ANY AUTOMATED CALLS! I HAVE ALSO NOT HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THE LAWSUIT BEING PAID OUT TO THOSE THAT HAVE MADE CLAIMS (including myself) AND THE FINAL HEARING WAS 8/5/15! $15 IS NOT ENOUGH FOR ALL THE TROUBLE THESE CALLS HAVE CAUSED!!

    ADMIN – Hi Alvin,

    Hopefully they will.

  58. James Feulner says:

    The pharmacist at Walgreens have been stealing some of my medications I’ve been shorted out pills numerous of times in the store manager will not do anything about it I would like the pharmacist to be arrested and I would like the DEA to investigate this I am mentally ill and I am on psych meds and I need my meds and I’m tired of them getting stolen so hopefully someone will help me be represented in this class action lawsuit

    ADMIN – Hi James,

    Sadly this particular case has nothing to do with medications getting stolen. TCPA has to do with businesses contacting you on your phone without your permission.

  59. NORMAN GUINN says:

    They robo called me and my wife. Even after we had stopped it. Please add us Norman Guinn–Doris Guinn.

    ADMIN – Hi Norman,

    I can’t add you. You must file using the link provided.
