On the first Tuesday of December, a man filed a lawsuit against Rite Aid pharmacy in Hillsboro, Oregon, after receiving another customer’s prescription. The lawsuit said the man received the wrong medication at the Rite Aid located at 2021 N.W. 185th Avenue in the Tanasbourne area.

According to the lawsuit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court by Jawdat Mohammad, it claims Mohammad was given a medication intended for another customer—a customer who had a similar last name but different first name. However, before Mohammad knew that he received the wrong drug from the Rite Aid pharmacy, he claims he took the incorrect medication unknowingly for three weeks.

The lawsuit claims that taking the wrong medication  caused severe side effects for Mohammad.  According to the lawsuit, Mohammad suffered insomnia, chest pains, and gastrointestinal pains from taking the wrong medication. The suit also claims Mohammad fainted, had trouble eating and breathing, and was hospitalized twice during this time.

According to Mohammad’s attorney, Rite Aid disputes that the prescription Mohammad took actually made him that sick, but Rite Aid did acknowledge Mohammad was given the wrong medication by a pharmacy employee.  However, Rite Aid has not released an official statement about this incident at this time.

The lawsuit doesn’t specify what drug Mohammad was supposed to receive or what medication he got in its place. However, the lawsuit seeks $120,000, which is to compensate Mohammad $19,838 for his medical bills and $100,000 for his pain and suffering.
