Man Claims He Was Not Allowed to Buy Allegra D Because Pharmacist Didn't Want to Sell it To Him

A Murfreesboro man told WGNS that he was not allowed to purchase Allegra D at the Walgreens Pharmacy at the corner of Northfield Boulevard and Memorial Boulevard Sunday night. He told us the evening pharmacist told him...

 

The person whom WGNS spoke with is not a convicted felon and his name does not appear adversely on the pharmaceutical database that allows customers to purchase products containing pseudoephedrine. The customer was following state procedure when he approached the cash register with the card for the drug and driver’s license in hand.  

So why could he not purchase Allegra D for is allergies?  The allergy sufferer told us the night shift pharmacist told him it was his discretion…

 

WGNS spoke to the daytime pharmacist at Walgreens on Monday who was both pleasant and helpful, however he could not comment on the situation. In fact, he referred us to a corporate office for Walgreens. There, we left a message, but have not received a follow up call.  

Additional Complaints:

It is important to note that WGNS did see similar stories on FaceBook that involved nearly identical complaints at the same Walgreens during the evening hours. However, those complaints were not confirmed.

The person in this report has decided that he does not want to be identified. His identity is being kept in confidence at WGNS where we have the full recording of his statement.
