Woman Faces Criticism After Humiliating Pharmacist for Refusing to Sell Medicine Without Prescription

A woman faced criticism online after publicly humiliating a pharmacist for refusing to sell her medication without a prescription.

Joan DV Alcudia, a Facebook user, shared a video of a pharmacist at a drugstore who allegedly declined to sell medicine to her because she did not have a prescription. The post quickly went viral and garnered various reactions online.

In the video, it appeared that there was a misunderstanding between the woman and the pharmacist. The pharmacy’s employee refused to sell prescription medication to the woman because she did not have a doctor’s prescription.


Alcudia expressed her frustration with the situation, questioning why she was not allowed to purchase the medication while others were able to do so. She even humiliated the pharmacist over the drugstore’s policy.

The pharmacist explained that she could not sell the medication without a prescription because her license was at stake.

Many people were angered by the woman’s actions of publicly humiliating the pharmacist. Health workers also expressed their frustration over the incident.

Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are medications available without a prescription.

The online community commended the pharmacist for adhering to the policy of not selling prescription medicine without a prescription.
