    I'm a pharmacist and the fact that you think generics are different from the brand is laughable. Same fucking thing homie.

    Lmao 30$ an hour isn't close... starting salary for a retail pharmacist is 120k straight out of college in NY... could be more in most places. Pharm managers can make 150k immediately

    I wish I knew how to insert the clapping gif. This is perfect. NOBODY, besides pharmacists, knows how much work being a pharmacist actually is. Or how stressful it is. We have to deal with some of the most stringent laws in the US, along with having to deal with people who are extremely rude and think pharmacies should work like McDonald's.

    Not to mention actually obtaining the degree is extremely difficult. You can't just dick fuck your way through pharm school. It doesn't work like that.

    You have no clue what you're talking about. Not a single person in my pharm class was a failed doctor

    Idk how accurate this statement is. There's a shit load of issues that are gray areas that can't be caught by the computer. In store inventory has to be done to match it with the computer. They also do counseling like you said. My wife gives several over the phone consultations per week. They also give vaccines. Some also mix their own compounds.

    There's some truth to what you're saying but you could use the same logic for a primary dr. "Wtf does a primary do? All they do is guess what's wrong with you and write you a script or send you to a specialist. .. Anybody could Google symptoms. "

    I don't really care as long as they keep paying her. I'm just saying you wouldn't want some clown without schooling handling the shit she does.

    In general, pharmacists will have a broader knowledge than most doctors about drugs. But a doctor in a specialty most likely will know more about the drugs used in his specialty than a typical pharmacist would.

    I've found that pharmacists are sometimes blind followers of these interaction alerts and don't always understand their significance. I can't tell you the number of dumb calls/messages I've received "just to make sure you know about" a particular theoretical minor interaction.

    Like I give a shit what other people think about pharmacist. Look, take everything I say in this thread with a grain of salt. Of course I'm over generalizing and my observations are just that, my observations. You guys are taking this way too seriously, as if I should be providing peer reviewed studies in which they concluded that all pharmacists are in fact cunts. No study exists for that. It is simply my opinion based on what I've seen and read on their message boards.

    Dude is doing his job. If you need a special brand for your pussy ass stomach, get the doctor to write it for that.

    lol... my best female friend is a pharmacist... we took the mcat together and she destroyed me.. i think she had a 35 which could get her into most top medical schools even though she's asian.. she ended up going to pharm school over med school since she was looking more for a lifestyle career.. now she has a PHD..

    she was in a few of my classes the the 1st couple years of med school.. i also ended up partying with a shit ton of physical therapy, occupational therapy and pharmacy students (e.g. asian females) because she's a social butterfly

    His pussy ass Stomach is not the issue. The issue is he either wears size 6 skinny jeans for pain because he needs freaking Opioids for s 3 week old sprained ankle, or much more likely, he is an opioid addict.

    Seriously. You have to be softer than Charmin to need painkillers for a sprained ankle.

    Somehow he made a thread pissed off about the Pharmacist refusing to tell him what types of Opioids they keep in the back and thinks he should have a right to know.

    When most people ask what types of Opioids a pharmacy keeps in the back area, its called "Casing your marks for later break and enter". That's why they are not allowed to answer specifics on any opioids, however you try to talk around it.

    Pharmacists make much more than 30/hour. It's a 6 year degree and most of them are earning 6 figures and then some.

    I sprained both my knees falling off a ladder to a concrete floor, never took painkillers.

    It only hurt when I moved, so I didn't move much.

    Pretty sure you don't have the freedom to force a vendor to sell you something.

    You had the freedom to try elsewhere.
