Walgreens, 2023

According to the March 21 article "Walgreens Under Fire for Not Dispensing "Necessary" Meds Amid Staffing Shortage", as a result of a widespread lack of vital pharmaceuticals on the market, unfilled prescriptions have become a major cause for concern in the modern day.

Several consumers are now asserting that Walgreens is having difficulty dispensing medications that are not currently experiencing a shortage.

According to a report in The Durango Herald, a woman named Chelsea Johnston, who resides in Durango, Colorado, had problems filling her prescription for antidepressants at a local drugstore chain lately.

"It was a very necessary prescription," Johnston told The Durango Herald. "It was alarming that it just wasn't taken very seriously and I was given no follow up."
