You’ve never had any problems when you’ve taken your prescriptions to any of the pharmacies around Boise over the years. In fact, you have used the pharmacy numerous times and have always been happy with the service and results you’ve received.

Unfortunately, the last time you had your prescription refilled, you noticed a mistake. You are familiar with the way the pills of this particular medication look—because it’s something you take often—and these pills were different. You went back to the pharmacy and returned the medication. Turns out, you were given a completely different type of medication.

What Happened?

As you can probably imagine, taking medication that is prescribed for an ailment or condition that you don’t have can result in significant consequences. For instance, you could experience a variety of different symptoms, including these:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Blurry vision
  • Disorientation
  • Hallucination
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle ache
  • Acid reflux
  • Heart problems
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Drowsiness
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Swelling or other allergic reactions
  • Bruising
  • Death

Depending on which medication you receive and your current health, you could also experience other types of problems from taking the wrong kind of medication or dosage of medication.
