Woman Sues CVS After Suffering Injuries from Wrong Prescription

When people ingest the wrong medications, serious injuries may occur. Sometimes patients take the wrong drug or dosage by mistake, but other times patients are given the wrong medication by pharmacists—causing unnecessary side effects and harm. This is exactly what a Baton Rouge woman claims happened to her when she visited a CVS pharmacy in Louisiana to have her prescription filled; she unknowingly received the wrong medication.

According to Louvilla Young, a Baton Rouge woman who filed a lawsuit against CVS Pharmacy, she visited a local CVS pharmacy located at 1214 Main Street in Baker, Louisiana, to get her prescription filled. She received what she thought was her prescription, brought it home, and took the medication for 10 days before becoming ill.

The lawsuit filed in the 19th Judicial Court alleges that Louvilla Young was given another customer’s prescription. After taking the wrong medication for about a week and a half, Young claims she suffered injuries to her stomach and intestines.

Because someone at the pharmacy gave Young the wrong prescription, she is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for physical and mental pain and suffering, physical injury, medical bills and loss of enjoyment of life. It appears that a settlement has not been reached and the case is going to trial. The court case number is 616107 and has been assigned to Division D Judge Janice Clark.

Our pharmacy malpractice lawyers at Kennedy Hodges will keep our readers posted on the outcome of this case, and wish Louvilla Young a full recovery.
