A: Is it possible you were supposed to be given erythromycin 0.5% ophthalmic strength ointment? Whatever the case may have been, you could contact a med mal attorney in Mississippi to review the matter in greater detail in terms of the prescription you were given, the one you were supposed to get, and resulting damages. I hope you are okay as a result of the mix-up. Good luck
