A woman has filed a personal injury suit against Walgreen’s, claiming the pharmacy gave her incorrect instructions for her daughter’s prescription medication, which caused her daughter to become intoxicated.
According to the suit filed on March 26 in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court by Kiley Pfeifer, Dr. Jamil Rama called in a prescription for her 4-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn Pfeifer, on January 30. Rama called for Pfeifer’s daughter to take .25 milliliters of Risperidone twice each day.
However, Pfeifer claims that went she went to the pharmacy to retrieve the medication, Walgreen’s instructed her to give her daughter a dosage of 2.5 milliliters twice each day.
Pfeifer says she followed the instructions the pharmacy gave her on the evening of January 30 and the morning of January 31.
Pfeifer says that soon afterwards, her daughter suffered from Risperidone intoxication, which caused her toxic encelopathy, delirium and tachycardia, pain and suffering, and medical costs.
Pfeifer seeks damages in excess of $50,000.
