So you are ready to get out of the hospital or leave the doctor office and your doctor asked would you like me to fax your prescription in or would you like to take a hard copy? Take the hard copy! Some drugs won't be released or even filled before the pharmacist receives a signed prescription. I went to rite aide, waited for ten minutes, only to find out I couldn't have my drugs. I had the hard copy but it wasn't signed. Well I had a few choice words I called my doctor. Then I got a prescription for something else.
Because of thefts at drug stores drugs like Oxy, Morphine are only given with hard copy prescription
