Dis-Chem / Pharmacist dispensed incorrect medication
I purchased prescribed medication from Dischem Carslwald, Midrand on 21st Feb for Flu. Later that day i was rushed to hospital as i was dizzy, weak, nauseous and not in my senses.I later found out that Dischem had incorrectly supplied me with High Blood Pressure tables i.e Amloc 10mg which is meant for 'chronic patients'.I took 2.The doctor told me that if continued taking this tablet, it would of lead to death. I was put under drips, went for various blood tests and an Ultra sound scan as i had a very high inflamation rate as well as high white cell blood count. I still have more tests to follow. Discovery is not paying for my bills as it is not covered in my scheme. I have contacted Dischem and advised them on what happen.The staff that dispensed the tablet is a temp and I think she is not a qualified pharmacist.I have recieved no response from Dischem not even an apology or any sympathy to date.This service is pathetic.I could of lost my life and they cant be bothered. How many other patients do they do this to?At least i was lucky to find out in time.I want Dischem to compensate me for all my medical bills.I have reported them to the HSCPA and I will open up a case against them.
