My pharmacists don't demonstrate any knowledge about drugs. But they are fast and courteous. I can walk in anytime and walk out with my filled prescription in ten minutes max.

My pdoc once prescribed Vivactil for me because it is the only non-sedating activating tricyclic. The pharmacist told me it is a tricyclic and will make me drowsy. Obviously she hadn't done her homework.

They could care less what my prescription is for. They've never given me a funny look for anything, such as Lithium or Naltrexone or Pindolol or whatever. There was a period when I tried a bunch of different things but couldn't take the side effects in the first days, so one week after the next I was coming in with another prescription. They don't care. I think it would be cool though to know a pharmacist who is really into it and could discuss various tricks of the trade that other people are doing. JohnL
