My script was not changed and this is not the first time our small town pharmacy has made a mistake. Since the caps were SO different, I looked them up on drugs.com. I haven't taken any of the 240mg caps yet. Wondering what happens if I do. Can't cut them in half as they're caps.
You need to take them back to the pharmacy! Tell them to check the Rx from the Dr-that you normally take the 120mg dose. It is their mistake they should take them back, refund your money, and fill the proper dose. Do not take these unless it was your Dr that increased your dose. Pharmacies are run by people and people do make mistakes but this could have been very dangerous. They need to take them back and give you the proper doseage. It is always a good idea to double check your medications when you get them. If they look different from what you normally get then always question the pharmacist. Many times it might be that they are carrying a different manufacturer's generic but it could also be a mistake. It is never wrong to question something that looks different from what you are used to.
