    Specialty Pharmacy

    I've become totally dissatisfied with my specialty pharmacy. Orders don't get filled. They give a date for delivery (2 days in advance) and then cancel the order at 7pm the day before. They claim I need a renewal for my refill when I don't. I live in the Northeast and they send the medication from Florida (after ordering it from my local specialty pharmacy). Etc. etc...
    Can anyone recommend one?
    Thanks!

    My insurance company chooses my specialty pharmacy, and occasionally changes pharmacies. I don't know if I have a choice.

    But I currently use CVS; haven't had a problem.

    Symptoms began in JAN02
    - Dx with RRMS in OCT03, following 21 months of limbo, ruling out lots of other dx, and some "probable stroke" and "probable CNS" dx for awhile.
    - In 2008, I was back in limbo briefly, then re-dx w/ MS: JUL08

      You didnít reveal which specialty pharmacy you are using. I have used Walgreens for many years and have found them very efficient. But there is such a monopoly for these kinds of pharmacies you donít have much choice.

        We have used ACS (tel 877 985 6337) for the lat 20 years. No complaints at all. We are in south jersey, they are in Florida.

          I live in western ma. Near Springfield, Longmeadow, Agawam.... the big hospital is Baystate. Baystate recently opened its own specialty pharmacy so I switched my Ampyra from what I did have to Baystate. Much better service. Was it Caremark I was using? Maybe. But the delivery schedule went from great to inconsistent.
