Drug shortage

Call the drug store, speak with the head pharmacist, explain concisely. If they do not make it right, first change pharmacies (sometimes there's a cash bonus for doing so) and second call your doctor and explain to the nurse that your pharmacy shorted you, that you need a new copy of all your prescriptions so you can move pharmacies and ask who it should be reported to.

Probably no one will do anything, but "carelessness" is a huge problem for pharmacies, anyone who could "miscount" pills by more than 10% could easily mislabel or misfill a prescription and cause someone's death.

Give them a chance to make it up, notification that they have problems in-house, but it's more than fraud and theft, it's dangerous and they can have their license revoked for errors filling prescriptions.
