I know there is no excuse for this type of screw up so ill just tell it like it is. This morning we were in a huge rush out the door when I gave my son "his" meds. After I dropped him off I was putting stuff away when I noticed that his meds bottle was on the 2nd shelf...it's never on the 2nd shelf. Turns out I had mixed up his Concerta (ADD med) for my Celexa!!!! (Anxiety and depression) luckily there was only a 2mg difference so I didn't have to worry about overdose. I was one freaked out mama. Called the dr and they told me what to look for. After talking to my son I found that he had taken mine TWICE this week. Thank god there was no adverse reaction!!! What a scary mistake!!!!!
Oh no! That's scary! So glad it didn't hurt him, I think you should do something to the bottles so you can't miss the difference. Maybe cover his with construction paper or color the cap with a red sharpie.
I don't know if you get the prescription filled at target but they have different colored rims on their meds bottles to help you tell the difference between meds. I don't think walgreens does it but you could ask them if they could put it in a different size bottle: ie. a short wide bottle or tall bottle (I used to work for walgreens pharmacy) so I know they will do it if you ask. I don't know about walmart or other pharmacies.
