    Should you be able to get your money back?... at this point in time you can't!... Some of these drugs cost hundreds even thousands per script... the reason I'm bringing this up is... I was talking to a friend of mine today about what happened to me with my hand and he brought up about 8 years ago he was prescribed a cream for his hands.. He said it was some kinda steroid with another med combo and it was just under a $1000 a tube... he had no health insurance at that time but really needed the med... The first time he put it on he ended up in the ER due to really serious side effects... swelling of the hands, arms ,lips and tongue (where he found it hard to swallow ), rapid heart beat, nauseous and blurred vision with headache( he thought he was going to die)... He forgets the name of the med but I was wondering why can't you get your money back if the med has side effect where it is as bad as that where you end up in the ER the first time you use it or the med don't work... I was just trying to find out but can't seem to find anything on it:dontknow:...If this is a bit rambling my pain meds are working thank god :cheer:

    If I had the name of the med I would see if a class action lawsuit was against it

    The only people who benefit from class actions are the lawyers, its more of a punishment than anything

    I blame the FDA for this just like I blame the FCC where I can't pick a cable company ... deep pockets and lobbyist have the say at the end of the day

    Medications are not guaranteed to work for everyone and no body forces you to take them thus you accept partial liability along with the vendor and the manufacturer. Your recourse is in court but as you used the product you can't return it for a refund.

    Just so you'll know. Most cable companies do not have exclusive franchises. Another cable company is free to move in. That went out with the cable act of 1984 which deregulated the industry. The reason that you don't have a choice is because it is so expensive to build a cable plant. if you only get 10% of the homes passed, you'll go bankrupt. Most companies won't take that chance. Verizon did it with their FiOS product and it nearly took the company down. They've cut costs to the bone and laid off huge amounts of people. They are lucky because they have the land line telephone business that supported them.

    Also most states have laws prohibiting returning prescription medications so it would be illegal for the pharmacy to accept the return.
