CVS Mixes Up Cancer Pills with Kids’ Pills
A CVS Pharmacy in New Jersey is in trouble with the state Attorney General after it mistakenly distributed breast cancer treatment pills to children instead of fluoride pills they were supposed to receive.
Tamoxifen is used to treat breast cancer in women and men by blocking the female hormone estrogen. Fluoride is used to prevent tooth decay and is usually.
The state attorney general’s consumer affairs division has begun an investigation into the mistake. No injuries have been reported in relation to the drug mix-up.
