What should I do if the prescription medication I received at Walgreens is making me sick?

It is important to find out if you are taking the correct medication. Most people assume that pharmacists fill their prescription correctly, but pharmacists have been known to hand customers the wrong medication, the wrong dosage of drug, or provide the wrong instructions that would cause patients to take the right medication too many times a day. Because there could be many reasons for why you are feeling sick, you should take the following steps:

  • Call your local Walgreens. Ask the pharmacist about your prescription. What medication did they fill? What was the dosage? How many times a day should you take the drug? Compare the information they give you to the prescription label on your pill bottle to see if they filled the wrong drug, dispensed the wrong dose, or provided the wrong instructions.
  • Call your doctor. Find out from your doctor what the original prescription was for and compare that information to what the pharmacy told you about your prescription. Inform your doctor if you have been taking the wrong medication or the incorrect dose.
  • Go to the hospital. Your doctor may want to see you immediately or have you go to the emergency room to be checked out by a physician. Don’t ignore this instruction, as it is critical to your health and potential pharmacy malpractice case.
  • Call a Walgreens pharmacy error attorney. If the pharmacy provided you with the wrong drug or dose, you may have a legal claim for compensation. You should contact a lawyer immediately, specifically an attorney who focuses on pharmacy malpractice claims.
