check your meds

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I am asking everyone to check the medicine when you have it filled I just got Mom's fill at Walmart checked it when I got over to their house I didn't recognize one of the pills looked closer and realized they gave her 100 MG of this pill instead of 10 MG 10x the dose could of been a dangerous situation if I didn't notice it SO PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MEDICINE WHEN YOU GET IT FILLED. emoticon

    That is scary and deadly too. Glad that you checked. I had one that was not mine and took it back. Not sure how it got into my meds.

    I'm glad I just have asthma inhalers and common/generic stuff (thyroid) that is not likely to be done wrong and is color coded.
