Percocet - What to do if pharmacist filled wrong dosage?

Am sorry “was not as effective”
I let him know
Did you see a written script with the dosage? I can't imagine that the doctor wouldn't have told you but could they have adjusted your dosage?
Definitely verify with your doctor and pharmacist!
Immediately contact your pharmacy and your doctor. A similar error occurred when my dad was dying and on liquid Lortab. The pharmacist dispensed the incorrect amount, because he was calculating 7.5 mg per TEASPOON, when it's 7.5 mg per TABLESPOON. I caught the error in the pharmacy, and it was corrected on the spot.
Moral - in the future, check your prescriptions before you leave the pharmacy. I always do, and I've caught mistakes 3 times in the last 30 years. Very rare, but they do happen;)
Absolutely call the pharmacy ASAP and ask to speak with the pharmacist. Let the Pharmacist know what occurred; this is obviously in no way your fault.
Of course, go back to the pharmacy and explain the situation regarding the mistake the Pharmacist made and get the right dose of the medication you were prescribed by your DR., it was NOT your mistake.
All the best, masso
