Potential Mistake In Pill By Pharmacist And I’m Out Of State

Judy Says:

I think my pharmacist put the wrong pill in my script bottle and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can find what it is. The closest is a green one w the same markings k 101 which is Ritalin and I’ve never taken that and I have taken a days worth of the pain meds and I’m scared I took the wrong medicine my pharmacy is closed and closed tomorrow so I can’t get them to confirm. I’m traveling out of state. I’ve talked to pharmacist and poison control. No one can find a light blue pill with these markings. It’s def not green. I’m just scared because I take oxycodone 10 mg for chronic pain but I’ve never taken any kind of Ritalin it adderall or amphetimine and now i May have take it for a whole day and i have to sleep to work tomorrow and I’m out of state where I don’t know anyone.

I understand your fears, if it were me, I'd feel the same, I am always double checking my medications, ever since I had an issue with a pharmacy years ago.

If you took Ritalin/Methylphenidate, you'll know, if you've never taken it before, it will likely make you feel as if you've had way too much caffeine, its typical side effects can include nervousness, anxiety, appetite loss, headache, and insomnia.

That said, can you please post back with a description of the pill you are questioning? You said the other one has the same markings, but what shape and color is the one in your bottle?

I am not doubting you, but please double check the imprint, just in case your being upset was affecting our perceptions.

I’ve taken 10 mg oxycodone that were blue. Green were 15s. You would KNOW if you took Ritalin.

K 101 is definately Ritalin. Check a pill finder.
