Similar drugs except one has acetiminophen and one has aspirin. Both are opioids. Picked up wrong one, took it, feel it works better but pharmacist wants me to bring back what's left of the incorrect one. Do I have liability or is he worried about his own liability?
Yes you should take it back and get the right ones. You don't have them prescribed. Then ask your dr about the one with aspirin for you. He has to account for what he did about the error and the count of all narcotics. He's in trouble with both the pharmacy board and the DEA. Legally they can't cause you to take it back. Nor can they make the pharmacy fill any future scripts for you. I sure wouldn't trust you again if I was the pharmacist, and you didn't do what I asked. Its not the med prescribed for you. His liability is the same no matter what you do.
