    No, you cannot sue.

    Assuming that you are in the US, IF your mother suffers any permanent damage that can be definitely linked to this, then SHE can sue. But YOU cannot sue at all, and SHE can only sue if she has long-lasting, continued damages. That means considerably more than just taking time to get back on track.

    She (or you) bear a certain amount of responsibility here too - are you saying that neither you nor she checked to see that you received the right prescription?

    You should always check to be sure you get the correct prescription from the pharmacy.

    Was she prescribed the wrong medication or was it filled wrong? What is written on the hard copy of the medication?

    PS: As stated above...YOU cannot sue.
