Prescription errors at pharmacies

Posted on Sep 16, 2011

I went to the doctor for a follow-up visit about my medications. I gave the prescriptions to the Walgreens pharmacy, picked up my medication and when I got home, there was a bottle of Levothyroxine in the bag. It had my name and information on it, so I took it according to the directions on the label.
The doctor said my thyroid levels were low at the next visit, but not to worry. The next day, I got a call from the pharmacy asking me if the doctor had prescribed Levothyroxine for me. I explained to her that I had had it in my bag the day I picked up my other medications. She told me that she thought I had been given someone else's medication. I've been taking this medication for four months now, and the doctor is weaning me off of it. We still don't k now if my thyroid was damaged because of this pharmacy mistake. It's very scary!
