CHICAGO – A Chicago resident alleges she was injured because a pharmacy improperly filled her prescriptions.

Ethel Edwards filed a complaint on Sept. 14 in Cook County Circuit Court against Highland Park CVS LLC, and CVS Pharmacy Inc., alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, on Sept, 20, 2016, Edwards consumed the prescribed medications Pantoprazole and Lisinopril that were distributed, supplied and sold by defendants. She alleges she sustained severe injury after the intake because the defendants improperly filled the prescriptions and improperly instructed her to take Lisinopril in an amount in excess of what was prescribed by her doctor.

The plaintiff seeks judgment in an amount in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court. She is represented by Nikitas K. Fudukos of Seidman Margulis & Fairman LLP in Chicago.
