    Answered . Your post is almost unreadable, but it looks like you went to a pharmacy and they did not want to fill the prescription for some reason. The way to handle that is to either go to another pharmacy, or contact your doctor to discuss a resolution. The reason you can't find a lawyer is because your post indicates you probably have no case. You only mention one pharmacist - what happened when you contacted your doctor or went to another one?

    Answered . The reason you cannot find a lawyer is because nothing in your post constitutes a legal claim. Pharmacists are NOT required to fill prescriptions, and your remedy was very simple, and that was to call other pharmacies. You're in Savannah and there are 100's. In the time you wasted calling lawyers and the drug company you could have easily located a pharmacy that wants your business so any harm in the delay is actually caused on your end.

    Answered . Your civil rights have not been violated. No one has a right to get their prescriptions filled. There is no malpractice because there is no practice, the pharmacist refused to treat. There is no criminal misconduct because it is not against the law in Georgia to refuse care. Talk to your doctor or find another pharmacist.
