My Pharmacy Gave Me The Wrong Medicine

Posted by Frank Spector | Jan 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

This was from a recent website visitor who called because she was given the wrong medication from the pharmacy. Taking the wrong medication can be harmful to you.  So here are some tips.

Make sure you can read the doctor's prescription and if you can't, ask the doctor to tell you what the medicine is and what the dosage should be.

If possible, have the doctor make a copy so you will have one to compare when you pick up your medicine.

When you get your prescription, look at the bottle and make sure. Sometimes, you will get the generic form and the name of the drug on your prescription will not be the same as what is on the bottle. Ask the pharmacist before you leave.

Pharmacies, especially the big ones are under lots of pressure to fill prescriptions and mistakes do happen. So be as careful as you can be.

You can call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT. Or fill out the contact form on this page or on any page of the website.
