I am pregnant and the pharmacy gave me the wrong medication and I am afraid of what may happen to me and my unborn baby after taking the wrong prescription. What are my rights?
If a pharmacy dispensed the wrong medication to you or made an error in your prescription you can hold them accountable for their mistake. If you are pregnant, you should visit the doctor as soon as possible. There have been several cases of pharmacy error involving expectant mothers and often times the extent of harm is not known until the baby is born.
Many pharmacy errors are completely preventable and you as a consumer have the right to sue a pharmacy if you have suffered a medication mistake. You should consult a board certified attorney to determine who is at fault for the error and to investigate your claim immediately.
