In brief: Usually not

Every medication (and pretty much everything in life) has potential benefits & potential risks.
Doctors do our best to select meds which will do more good than harm, but every body responds differently & we can't always predict. Pharmacy's job is to dispense what the doctor prescribed & answer your questions. If they did that, they probably won't reimburse for a med you had trouble taking.
