    Thanks for your comments, Carl. Are you saying that if people use these coupons within the parameters of the coupon that they are abusing them? Not sure I understand the comment about the patients that abuse them. If the stores allow the use of the coupons and the patient is using it as required by the coupon, where is the abuse? Help me understand your concern a little better.

    I do agree that if a person has multiple medications with possible interaction issues that they should use caution transferring prescriptions around to different pharmacies. Other medical professionals have voiced that concern in past workshops and I think it's great advice. For those like me, who only have one script each month, there is no confusion.

    While I love a good deal, please know that the companies that offer these "incentives" and the patients that abuse them put themselves at risk of potentially serious drug-drug interactions by having their medication profile at multiple locations just to save a few dollars. The patients that use these offers the most are the ones that have more medications, and should have a relationship with their pharmacist who can help them avoid problems or offer suggestions on their prescription profile.
