N.J. CVS accidentally dispenses cancer drug to children filling fluoride prescriptions

January 22nd, 2013

An error at the CVS Pharmacy on Main Street in Chatham, NJ dispensed a cancer fighting drug that interferes with estrogen. Over a two-month period when children were supposed to get flouride pills this mistake led to some youngsters’ fluoride prescriptions being filled with tamoxifen because the two drugs look quite similar, they are both small, white pills but, according to a CVS spokeperson. The statement from the company said the fluoride pills “should have the letters ‘SCI’ stamped on one side and the numbers ‘1007’ on the other. Tamoxifen pills contain the letter ‘M’ and the numbers ‘247.’” If this happens to you or your child be sure to contact Gavin Lentz Esq at 1524 Locust St Philadelphia, PA 19102.
