The InstyMeds machine was created by Ken Rosenblum to address the U.S. pharmacist shortage (which I was unaware of). You still have to get a prescription from a doctor (damn!) with a special barcode and then you feed it into the machine. The unit then dispenses the correct number (damn!) of pills in a bottle with printed dosage, warnings, etc. You can then pay at the machine via credit card or have it bill your insurance provider. "While the current model of the InstyMeds only holds about 100 different drugs, apparently 45 of those drugs represent 80% of what is prescribed by doctors." So chances are it's got what you're looking for. Unfortunately for the woman in the picture it doesn't carry retro-active birth control medication. Nor does it carry any anti-vampire serum for that blood sucker attacking her neck.
