A woman is suing Deerfield-based Walgreen’s in a wrongful death and medical malpractice lawsuit after losing her child. The Walgreen’s Pharmacy filled her prescription for prenatal vitamins with a drug intended for chemotherapy use. After using the drug for an extended period of time, the woman lost her baby. The drug, not intended for prenatal use, interferes with cell production, DNA development, and cell growth. Additionally the drug may increase the woman’s risk of developing tumors and other complications. The drug could make it difficult for the woman to conceive in the future.
