Several higher dosage (10/325) tabs Endocet were found in Rx mixed with correct dose tabs (round) of 5/325. Who is liable for negative effects on patient after taking higher dose unknowingly?
This was a problem at the factory about a year ago but as kaismama says, this should be caught by a pharmacist because the 10/325 are much bigger than the 5/325. When they were dispensing, they should have seen there were two sizes of tablets even if they came that way from the factory in one bottle. The size difference should be questioned. Not to mention that the identifying markers are different.
Ultimately this is the PHARMACIST's fault. Had you not noticed, this could have been very dangerous! Have you used this pharmacy before? Or was this your first time using it? I would definately get in touch with the companys corporate headquarters and make them aware of this mistake. Pharmacists are paid big bucks and are liable for the health of the patient if a mistake is made.
