CVS accepts drug mistake

According to a pharmaceutical expert, there will be no health problems suffered by children who may have taken breast cancer treatment medication by mistake as they were given breast cancer treatment drugs instead of the prescribed fluoride pills by New Jersey pharmacist.

CVS Caremark officials said, “Only a few children ingested pills for breast cancer treatment that they mistakenly received, and company investigators are still working to determine how and why the errors occurred at the pharmacy in Chatham. The pharmacy has acknowledged improperly dispensing Tamoxifen instead of chewable fluoride tablets to children in as many as 50 families between December 1 and February 20.”

Daniel Hussar, a professor with the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy at the University of the Sciences said that there will be no serious or ill effect of the drug that was given by mistake to children as the drug has been taken for not a very long time.

CVS said that all families who got the drug were being contacted and they were being told about what happened and apologizing for what happened.

According to Mike DeAngelis, CVS Caremark's director of public relations, a majority of families denied being given a wrong pill and there have been no reported cases due to the incorrect pills.
