The nursing home I am in gave me medications I specifically said I did not want, and I took them without knowing. Is there anything I can do?
I am in a nursing home because I had a double stroke. During my recovery they gave me wellbutrin, doxapin, and zoloft without telling me. These drugs have the opposite effects on me than what they're supposed to and I became agitated and nervous. I wouldn't have known I was taking the drugs accept one day the nurse that was giving me pills mentioned that they increased the dosage of Wellbutrin and I knew what my medications were, at least I thought I did. I remember I specifically told the doctor I don't want, and will not take anti-depresant drugs. They just gave them to me anyway. They just mixed them right in with my Coumadin and blood pressure drugs and didn't tell me.When I found out I stopped taking them. I filed a complaint about it and during the hearing they just talked over me, which is easy to do because I had a trake and it's hard for me to talk. They said because I found out about the drugs and stopped taking them two weeks ago, that was in the past and they weren't going back to that. And ignored anything else I had to say about it.
