Confidential Settlement - Malpractice - Pharmacy Wrongly Gives Toddler Prozac

When a 2 1/2 year old developed hives his doctor prescribed Prelone to reduce the itch and rash. The child's Mom presented the prescription to a pharmacy in Lisbon. Shortly after receiving this first dose, the boy became feverish, sluggish, and vomited violently. This led to the discovery that the drug in the bottle was Prozac, not Prelone. The boy developed Serantonin Syndrome, a potentially life-threatening adverse drug reaction. This lawsuit was settled for a six-figure sum.
