What are the steps I should take after getting sick from the wrong medication my local Walgreens pharmacy gave me by mistake?

It is important that you take several steps following a pharmacy error, such as:

  • Seek medical treatment – Even if you feel lightheaded or different in any way, it is best to let a doctor know what happened and that you took the wrong medication or incorrect dosage of drugs that the pharmacy gave you.
  • Report the error to your local Walgreens pharmacy – Call the pharmacy to let them know what mistake they made in case another customer received your pills. This way, they may be able to warn someone else and stop them from taking the wrong meds.
  • Call the State Board of Pharmacy – Report the mistake made by the pharmacy to the state agency assigned to review pharmacy errors. They may decide to suspend the pharmacist’s license or reprimand the pharmacy for this mistake.
  • Keep the medication – Don’t return the wrong medication to the pharmacy. Keep it as proof. By keeping the pill bottle, label, directions, and bag your medication came in, you will have evidence  that can serve as proof that the pharmacy made an error with your medication.
  • Call an experienced attorney – Not all lawyers handle pharmacy malpractice cases. Make sure you speak with a lawyer who has had success in representing clients in similar situations and knows what it takes to stand up to large pharmacies.
