Do I have a case if family dr. prescribed a medicine that interacted with another medicine and caused a very toxic condition?

Sandy Level, VA |

This interaction between the 2 meds. landed me in the Emergency Room twice and I was admitted once and had to have two blood transfusions due to anemia and other cytopenias caused by this interaction. Family dr. knew I was taking the other medicine IMURAN and should NEVER have prescribed the other medicine (ALLOPURINOL). My hemoglobin went from a normal near 14 to a very dangerous low of 7.6. Also my pharmacist should have caught this.
