Trying out current medications can be frustrating, especially if 1 doesn’t work plus the copay is ridiculous.
I wish I could take the medicine plus return it to the pharmacy if it doesn’t do its intended purpose, but sadly there’s no recourse in this kind of situation.
You have to bite the bullet plus swallow the cost while shelling out more money for a different medication. This is how it has consistently been in this country, unless the pharmacy disfigures the drugs in some way or another. For instance, if you get your medications delivered to your front door plus the driver instead puts them in your mailbox without telling you, the drugs could get disfigured after a few hours in the hot Summer sun. My father had his pharmacy bring his current meds when this happened once a few years ago. Short of those extraneous situations, you wouldn’t normally feel entitled to return medications to a drug store even if they don’t “work” for you. Yet, 1 medical marijuana store’s return policy has driven this mindset into its customers. It’s good that you can return a cannabis product plus exchange it for something of equal or lesser value without any strings attached. However, there are a lot of people who abuse this system daily. They’ll take back a jar of cannabis flower buds just because the buds aren’t as dense as a previous batch. I understand getting moldy weed plus wanting to return it, but some people expect every single back of marijuana to be perfect. You wouldn’t be allowed to return other medications in this manner if you entirely wanted to treat the plant as a medicine in all retail situations.
