Re: advice - dr called in a new prescription for me (higher dose) and overdosed
Definitely not your fault.
Anytime things are done by humans, especially a succession of them, accidents happen. Whether is was the doctor who wrote it wrong, or the pharmacy who filled it wrong...it is not your fault. Knowing that, in the future I am sure you will look at everything you take.
In my pharmacy, if a dosage was way different than the one that I have been filling for years, I would hope the computer would red flag it.
I would insist on seeing where the mistake was made by getting a copy of the prescription. I would make a report to both the doctor and the pharmacy, no matter who is at fault. This was a serious error which should not have happened, and you were put in to serious danger from it. You should at least get the satisfaction of knowing who to blame, and make sure they know what happened to you.
I am so sorry...a similar thing happened to me, so we know it happens. Make a stink, everyone in that kind of work needs to know how important it is to do their job exactly right.
