just a quickie in relation to the cockup boots made with my medication giving (me sulfadiazine instead of sulfasalazine)
I arrive back from hols later tonight & have sulfasalazine at home,my question is,I'd only been on it 4 weeks before coming away & had to take 1 tablet a day for a week then 2 working up to 4 tablets a day.
I'd literally started the day before my holiday to take 4 but as some will know I brought with me the wrong medication as issued by boots.
when I get home tonight &going forward do I stay on 4tablets a day or do I have to work my way back up?
I rang the consultants secretary Wednesday & the helpline yesterday but noones come back to me 😡 I want to get back on it ASAP as missing it for 2weeks everything's starting to hurt.
anyone have any suggestions or advice please
Went to take sulfasalazine from the first bottle I used ( didn't take this one on holiday as wouldn't have had enough) & saw the label put on by Boots says sulfadiazine!
checked another box that's unopened but has sulfasalazine on it & the label also says sulfadiazine, found another bottle with a label on it saying sulfadiazine & the tablets are white so guess antibiotics
out of 4 bottles ( 1 in a box) all labels say sulfadiazine, 2 bottles have orange pills, 2 have white pills.
I can't believe Boots (or any pharmacy) could get it so wrong 😡seriously thinking of pursuing this from a legal perspective
