Pharmacy: I have no problem getting a prescription transferred from one pharmacy to another within certain company. For example Walgreens to Walgreens. if you are in a place that does not have a Walgreens and only has a WalMart they might . Otherwise I would call your provider and see if they can call in the script to the pharmacy you need.

Call the prescriber!: Only the prescribing provider can make that change. They need to call the new pharmacy with the prescription.
