A: In addition to Mr. Light's answer, you will need expert medical opinions. If you really are seriously affected, you really need to get a knowledgeable attorney.

A: Both previous answers are good. Your doctor (or a paid expert doctor) has to confirm that your prescription wasn't properly filled and that caused the repercussions you suggest. Sit down with a good attorney right away and save the medicine you claim is not correct.
