I had wisdom teeth removed about a week ago. A doctor prescribed pain medication and an antibiotic. I am highly allergic to cephalosporins and he prescribed Cephalexin. I have been vomiting non stop for a week. I have not been able to sustain food and little liquids. I believe that I can sue the office and the pharmacy who filled the prescription. Both have records of my allergies and BOTH could have prevented my illness. It was extremely negligent to carelessly look over my medical records and miss an allergy that could have killed me had I continued taking it. I want to know if I can press charges or file a lawsuit.
Additional details: I took the antibiotics and realized my devastating error when I noticed the class of the drug. I had been taking the drug for three consecutive days
