Why do pharmacies try to change brands without asking if it's okay to do so?
I'm on my 3rd pack of Sprintec and decently happy with it(minor back acne aside). I put in my order to CVS and am told it's out of stock, but they ordered more in a voicemail. No big deal as I made sure to not wait till the last minute to refill it.
Well I received a phone call tonight asking why I had two prescriptions for the pill. Someone decided to do me a favor and fill my prescription with Estarylla because they always keep it in stock and Sprintec they usually have to order. And apparently the Sprintec took longer than a day to arrive or someone didn't put in the order request as they said they did.
Now from lessons I learned in this wonderful community, I know not to just accept that they are the same exact pill with a different name. My chances are that my body would notice the slightest difference and I'd hate it!
So I asked to stay on Sprintec(they received it tonight) even if it's $10 more for 3 months and in the future, I'll make sure to call in a refill as soon as I receive notification that I can refill it.
