We're gonna wait for him to recover after blowing out his candles and then we'll all have a piece of cake and sing "The Happy Birthday Song" just for him.

Thank you Kids! ....
I'll bring a straw to suck out all the rum from the cake.

I went to the Dr's today, and had my BP checked to see how the new medication was working. Well, after 90 days of taking the meds, The BP was High High High! Hmmm.
I brought the bottle of the medication to the Dr. and low and behold...I was taking the WRONG Medication.
The drug store filled it from the Dr Prescription, but somehow, a different drug was in the bottle. All 90 of them.

Now, I don't know who did the switch, but it was not the Dr.
It's a big ? ? ? ?  ? ......
No wonder why my ear hurt sometimes and my chest was wheezing. It's a drug reaction from the wrong drug.

I can never figure why, when the Dr writes a prescription, that they scribble some words, and the druggist has to figure out the unclear writing. Most Dr's write like chicken scratch.

Drugs should be a letter / number identification. for example for just say Aspirin..  A 250 SC ....2 - 4x / day.
Aspirin  250 MG Safety Coated.... 2- 4 times per day.
See how easy? .... Simple! Very Happy 

Anyway..a salad for supper (back on diet) dr;s Orders. ha

Had 2 small mini cannoli for my party cake. No candles / No singing! ...

Again...thanks for the well wishes and the cake.

Happy birthday, Jimmy

I don't know if you are aware, but there are sites that allow you to put the color, shape and markings from pills to find out what they are. I always check the pills I get to make sure I received the correct ones.

Thanks JanaAZ....
 
This was the first time on the drug, and I figured it was just the Generic brand.
Thank goodness I had to get authorization from the Dr to get them re-filled.
 
When I called the DR...I had to make a visit to test my BP first, but I explained to the nurse that I ran out of my medication. She said, No Problem, I will call in 7 meds to get you by. When we picked up the pills, they were the original ones I had been on previously.
 
I brought the both pill containers to the Dr today, and He flipped when he had seen what wrong meds the drug store had given me three months ago.

I am going to check from now on. I just figured they were a Generic and that's why they looked different.

Oh my heavens, Jimmy. That's terrible.

Did ANYONE say what drug you were actually taking and if there could be any long lasting effects?

I agree with Barb ~ if you don't want to do the yellin' at least take "M" with you and let her spew out a few words to who ever is responsible.

Jimmy, I would find out what kind of drug you were taking for 3 MONTHS!!!

It could have caused you a lot of harm..

I have to say, that it was most likely the pharmacy's fault.
In this area, last year, there were a lot of mistakes from the CVS chain!
I would raise holy he@@!!!!
I would go to the pharmacy, speak with the Manager and follow through on this!
Jimmy, if your BP was so high and uncontrolled, you know you could have had a stroke!
And, what did those other pills do to your system???

Let Tina or DD handle this!!

I think DD would be great--get the big guns on this!!
and find out from your doctor what to look out for side effects from the other drug and be tested for it!!!

I would be furious if it this happened to my Dad!!!

Thanks cookingirl,
 
We never throw the empty pill cases away without taking off the label first.
 
I did check the drug and compare online, and the other drug is a blood preasure drug; but NOT what the Dr Ordered.
The only thing that the other drug caused was wheezing at times. And weight gain. Whatever that is ? hahahahahahaha

The Dr. said it was a drug that was close on the list to what he prescribed.

Prescribed: BYSTOLIC 10 MG TABLET

Was Given : BISOPROLOL FUMARATE 10 MG TAB
