    I would check with the pharmacy and tell them the Doctors name who wrote the script and ask them why its not the same name on the bottle before I would even try it.

    Happen to me got the wrong meds Doctor in ER gave me someone Else's script it was caught by my pharmacist Thank God or it would have made me very very sick did not go with the meds I now take.

    PLEASE CHECK WITH THEM FIRST>Better safe than sorry.

    I caught this at the counter of drugstore where I had just paid for it and noticed name on prescript paper as she was putting in the bag....they went and got the pharmasist and he showed me the prescription the dr had given me and that I had turned in to them....same one...and they verified that another doctor name on the pad the month before...when got home checked and it was still another different doctor than the one of the day...

    druggist said he made a change in computer and put correct info in.
