can you return "bad" meds to walgreens?
on saturday, we bought a bunch of stuff at walgreens, including some walgreens equivalent to tylenol quick release. much cheaper, works the same, etc.

we had opened one bottle in our car, and it seemed fine. today i opened a different bottle in the house, and it had a really strong odor. i thought it was weird but i just thought maybe it was what they used to seal the bottle. i took 2 because i have a terrible headache and left the bottle out on the counter to air.

now i feel really crappy, like when you take too much medicine, and your head feels like it's full of cement. i don't know if it will get worse or not.

can i take these back to walgreens, & tell them they made me sick? i don't know what to do. i'm scared to open the other bottles we bought now.

I would immediately call any phone number on the bottle and explain what happened. It is concerning that you are not feeling well and think it may be linked to the medicine you took. Please, call to make sure all is OK and to document this issue. Keep us posted and take care!

Good advice. I would call the number on the bottle and do what they say.

Call the walgreens pharmacy and explain the situation. They should have some advice.

I would call the pharmacy or call poison control or even your doctor.

Calling the Pharmacy will probably do you no good, I would take the bottle back and they will give you a refund, all walgreens products are 100% guaranteed. If you feel crappy in a day or two then I would call your md and see what they say, the pharmacist will not know about things like that.

i tried to take a nap, but my beagle wasn't having it :nono3:

i still had a headache after laying down for about an hour, so i got up & took some tylenol from a different bottle, and i feel a tad better. still have a headache but not like before. more like the headache i had BEFORE all of this started! :dunno:

Just checking in to see how you are feeling. Please, call and get this issue documented incase you have any further issues. Praying you are Okay!

thank you all for your wonderfully heartwarming concern! it made me really happy :)

i seem to be back to normal today, no weird leftover side effects or anything. & it never got worse yesterday. once i waited about 6 hours for the "bad" meds to get out of my system, i took some regular, name brand tylenol to try & get rid of the still-hanging-around headache, and started feeling better in about half an hour. the headache never truly went away, & i still have traces of it today, but since i had a headache BEFORE i took the "bad" meds yesterday, i can't really say that it's because of the meds. just been having more headaches lately.
