I usually go to one or two pharmacy's.... Sometimes once a week. I think they are trying to be polite in asking my name, but there alot of elderly people who fill alot of perscriptions there too.
I was never embarassed to get my meds, I have been on everything from UI meds, bc, vicodin, ad's... some at the same time. I say my name proudly and tell them exactly what perscription I need. If they have a problem with me... I just look at them like they are the crazy person... or smerk and think to myself that they are probably afraid of me. I think it is funny.
For new meds they ask if I want to talk to someone and usually I do, and ask if it will interact or how to take it. I am proud to get my perscriptions, I am helping myself and society by being on them....
Who cares if the pharmaist thinks you are crazy, ham it up... there has to be something fun in everything you do!
