Received Chlorothiazide instead of Chlorzoxazone

Last month when I picked up my refill for Chlorzoxazone 500mg. I noticed it was round instead on Oblong. The month before by pharmacy was out of the med so they transferred it to a competitor. It only had 1 refill left so when it came time for my refill I called my Dr. to call in my refill to my normal pharmacy. So, when the shape was different I thought maybe they changed to a different drug company. I put in for a refill earlier this week and a day later a received a call from the pharmacist. She seemed very concerned and very apologetic but proceeded to tell me that they had given me Chlorothiazide 500mg instead of the Chlorzoxazone 500mg. I had taken 93 of the wrong medication.
