BELLEVILLE — A consumer is suing Walgreens for allegedly prescribing the wrong medication, resulting in continuous coughing.
Charlena Lewis filed a complaint on June 20 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Walgreens, alleging it failed to provide proper medication to consumers.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 22, 2015, she suffered continuous coughing. She claims her condition was caused by the wrong medication given to her from Walgreens Pharmacy.
She claims she contacted the defendants and was assured that her coughing will eventually stop and she will be compensated for the error. Lewis claims her condition did not change and she did not receive any compensation for the damage.
The plaintiff alleges Walgreens failed to provide the correct medication, failed to correct or cure her constant coughing by providing the proper medication and failed to compensate her for the error.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to be compensated for the pain and suffering for the two years, payment for all hospital, doctor and medicine bills, and any other relief the court deems just.
