    In Bay Area, California a lot of PharmD's make ~$150k per year. I know several that do. Problem is everyone makes that much in the Bay and still can't afford to buy a home unless on the outskirts. Dual income at $150 each, you're good on a $1 mil home without being house poor if you got the downpayment to drop.

    Anyway that sounded very unprofessional coming from a pharmacist. I would have reported that person. Now a days you got these young 25-26 year old millennial pharmacist that blast through undergrad and pharm school, but lack other skills.

    It is most definitely a violation of HIPAA, especially if you could remember the lady's name. You wouldn't get any money out of it, but you'd definitely put them on check. What state do you live in? Some states have their own privacy laws; I'm only familiar with California's laws.

    can someone explain to me why these folks make that much money? do they have to be knowledgeable on tons of different drugs? there has to be a reason why they make that kind of cash.

    First thing I thought too.

    You don't need Hydrocodone for a sprained ankle. You need over the counter meds and to stay off of it for a bit with some compression and elevation.

    Depending on the pharmacy they sometimes actually mix the drugs and determine dosage . . . I'm not a pharmacist so outside of that you're on your own to figure out.

    But they're definitely not just some glorified cashier . . .

    With all of these "ask me anything" threads around here this week maybe a pharmacist can start one to provide some insight.

    Sometimes that's right out of pharmacy school right? Maybe I should've been a pharmacist.

    How do you even go to a different pharmacy? Here, the doctor sends the prescription to the pharmacy you tell them to. They won't give you a paper to take with you for opiates. People copy it and go to various pharmacies.

    Why take a placebo when you can take an opioid?

    They get paid a lot because they deal with a lot of bullshit like crackheads and people screaming at them when their free health care doesn't go through.

    Plus they also need to know the drugs they're giving out and make sure it's safe for that patient.
