He may take a tax deduction, but he better hope he's not audited.  It probably would be disallowed.

@Nonametoday  that´s been happening for years. Even needles. I bought some at the pharmacy and as I paid for them and left the counter I realized I had asked for the wrong unit but they refused to take them back so I had to keep them, and buy the right unit.

Re: Stores will not take Returns

And I was happy to see vitamins/supplements on the list for those who've suddenly discovered them and who've been ransacking the stores.

They're on eBay, too. As far as I'm concerned, ALL of these items should be jettisoned from eBay, even if they aren't "new" listings. Give me a break with these ghouls.

Re: Stores will not take Returns

After seeing so many people empty the shelves of tp, paper towels, sanitizers, soup, etc. I hope they get stuck with them and don't get their money back if they try and return them. Same goes for those who have posted toilet paper on eBay for $10 a roll...Karma, baby!

If you aren't going to use it or donate it, leave it on the shelf for someone else who needs it!

At least you don't have to pay for it since it wasn't your error. If your community ever has hazardous waste disposal days, you can bring unused prescriptions in and they will safely dispose of them so they don't contaminate the water table.


@Angelpuppy

 

I was about to post the same thing. I was told this years ago by the pharmacist. 


@shoesnbags   YOu all do not understand.  I saw the packaging at the window and told the pharmacist it was the wrong thing.  Please do not give me orders on medication returns.  I did not let it cross the red line before I recognized it was the wrong one.  But since I touched the box to turn it over and read the label, they will not take it back.  All I did was turn it over and saw the label and knnew it was wrong.  Perhaps you don't understand about insulin and needles, etc.  So read up on how it is packaged.

 

And this is the federal government, not a state.  The federal government took the medication back that was for the wrong person becaues of the packaging.  I am sure they disposed of it but they took it back, most likely to show that the person did not get his/her medicine so they could replace it.

I was responding to what you said in your original post.  You said,

" I told them I had not even opened it, I just realized it when I got it home and started to put it away."

 

Now you're saying "I saw the packaging at the window and told the pharmacist it was the wrong thing."

 

Totally different scenarios. Truly not trying to offend you, just agreeing with another poster that returning Rx meds has not been allowed, even before this virus.
