How do I as a patient get a prescription transferred from one pharmacy to another? Just as an example, Walgreens to Walmart or vice versa.

In brief: Call the prescriber!

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

In brief: 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.
