What Happens When Walgreens Gives Out Wrong Medication

Pharmacists help people who are sick with a cold and others who have more serious life-threatening illnesses by giving them the right medication. If they get a prescription wrong and provide the incorrect medication to patients who rely on their drugs, the prescription error could have very serious consequences.

This is exactly what happened to Lionnie Randle, who received the wrong pills from a Walgreens in southeast Houston several years ago. He went to get his hypertension pills to treat congestive heart failure, but the pharmacist gave him the wrong medication. He was given parasite medication instead, which caused him to get really sick and end up in the hospital for two days.

Since his medication is his lifeline for a very weak heart, the wrong pills could have caused him his life. Although Randle thankfully survived, others haven’t been so fortunate. Some people suffer serious injuries that cause them to lose their job and their families, and yet others have died from receiving a wrong prescription.

Although this pharmacy error occurred at Walgreens, it isn’t the only pharmacy chain to have made serious errors. Other pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid and pharmacies located inside supermarkets and other retail chains have also all made mistakes with patients.

Sadly, prescription errors continue to occur across Texas and throughout the world. The Texas State Board of Pharmacy receives hundreds of dispensing error complaints every year, and those are just the ones they know about.

If you suffered an injury, hospital visit, medical expenses or lost a loved one due to a pharmacy mistake, please call a Texas pharmacy error attorney at Kennedy Hodges at 888-526-7616 today and receive a free consultation and a free copy of our report, How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.
