Injured from Wrong Dosage? A Walgreens Lawsuit May Be Your Answer

When consumers take their prescriptions to the pharmacy, they expect that the pharmacist on duty will fill the correct drug and dosage of medication. Sometimes, however, pharmacists make dosing errors and patients suffer as a result. This is exactly what occurred to a Louisiana man at a Walgreens pharmacy.

According to a Walgreens lawsuit filed by a Jefferson Parish man in the 24th Judicial District, Walgreens gave Andrea Lovecchio a prescription for amiodarone, a heart medication, which should have been taken three times a day. Andrea Lovecchio and wife Katherine are suing Walgreens Louisiana Co. Inc., Renee Angelle Romain, and Todd Rosenthal for failing to specify when the medication should have been taken.

According to the lawsuit, the prescription was allegedly written incorrectly for three 400 milligram pills to be taken daily. Lovecchio asserts that Walgreens pharmacist told him to take the medication daily, all at once, which is what he did. He claims that after taking 1200 milligrams of amiodarone, he suffered an illness.

Lovecchio, 82, alleges that he fell to the floor and had to be transported to the hospital by an ambulance. He is suing Walgreens for an unspecified amount in damages for giving him too much heart medication that caused him severe health problems.

Pharmacy clients expect that their pharmacists will read and fill prescriptions correctly, recognize when a prescription is inaccurate, provide adequate instructions, and warn customers of prescription dangers. When they don’t do this and patients suffer the results of their negligent service, pharmacists are to be held accountable.

If you have been harmed by incorrect dosages, experienced pharmacy error attorneys can help you with your Walgreens lawsuit. Contact Kennedy Hodges today for a free consultation today at 888-526-7616.
