Oops! Canadian Pharmacy Gives Kids Bipolar Medication Instead Of Candy

A pharmacist assistant at a Canadian pharmacy “accidentally” gave out out bipolar medication to trick-or-treaters instead of candy Saturday night.

Apparently, a woman dropped her teenage son’s prescription drugs while on her way out of a pharmacy in Beauport.

The medications were Quetiapine and Divalproex sodium, both used to treat schizophrenia as well as other psychological disorder. And whoever picked it up, then placed it dangerously close to the candy basket on the counter. Ok…

Then, the pharmacist’s assistant, mixed in these individually wrapped pills into a basket of candy? (HOW?)

A Quebec city police officer said: “So – unfortunately – we don’t know how – an employee just mixed it with the candy by accident and distributed it to the kids.”

I still do not understand how this exactly went down, but it did according the The Daily Star.

Trick or Treat, with an emphasis on the former!
